What Makes Saint Mary’s Elementary School Unique?
From the outside, Saint Mary’s Elementary School looks like any other well-kept suburban school with bright, airy classrooms and energetic children entering its doors. Inside, however, you’ll immediately feel the Saint Mary’s difference. Ours is a faith-filled school where friendly, dedicated teachers warmly nurture each child’s unique talents and build a strong educational foundation. We prepare students to achieve their greatest academic potential as they grow in mind and spirit by offering:
An Atmosphere of Faith and Kindness
We graduate well-rounded students prepared for the future not only academically, but also spiritually and socially. We do this by promoting an atmosphere of respect, tolerance, and generosity through gospel lessons integrated throughout our curriculum.
An Innovative Curriculum for Inspired Learning
Our superior academic curriculum emphasizes core subjects and enriches your child’s life through special programs in art, technology, music, physical education, Spanish and music. With small classes and experienced teachers, we offer differentiated learning within all subjects as well as extra help for those who need it, encouraging children to flourish at every level.
Today’s Top Technology
Everyone at Saint Mary’s, from the principal to our youngest scholars, embraces the newest learning technologies with enthusiasm. Each classroom is equipped with a SmartBoard and there are two computer labs, one for younger children and the other for older students. There is also a science lab for grades 6 through 8, and each student in grades 6, 7, and 8 receives an iPad, which increases student interest in learning and ownership of the learning process.
A Vital Community Outside the Classroom
What happens at a school after the last bell says a lot about that school’s community. At Saint Mary’s Elementary School, our classrooms, halls, and gymnasium are filled with activity and enthusiasm as teachers, parents, and students gather after school for athletics, extracurricular activities, and special offerings.
Extended Day Program (EDP)
This after school service is offered only to St. Mary’s students from Pre-K through eighth grade. The program includes a snack, time for homework and study, arts and crafts, games and recreation, as well as free play and additional activities. Extended day care starts the first day of school immediately after dismissal, and ends the final day of school at 6:00pm. The fee is $10 per hour.
