    I find this school to be excellent in all aspects including academics quality of teachers and diversity. There are several class-levels in order to accommodate each individual student and despite the fact that so many different kinds of students are enrolled (boys girls several races/ethnicities etc.) the student body is very tight-knit. You will not find more devoted educators anywhere else. Like any other school you get out what you put in. Overall the school is truly the epitome of its motto Outstanding Among All.

    I marked this a 3-star school on its way up. Catholic schools in general have been hit hard in our community and around the nation from what I can tell. Purcell Marian is a school who is rebounding from this and doing its best for the students. Improvements in technology and the overall academic expectations is wonderful to see! There have been a number of changes recently and that is always hard for former students to see but change can be good and in this case it definitely is! There is a dedicated staff for a school grounded in tradition and the Catholic faith but on the right path for the future.

    The academic quality is so-so depending upon how much initiative the student contributes to their own education. The extrcurricullar activities and other sports and music has greatly declined since the opening of the new building. The parent involvement needs to be increaded and emphasized more so by the institution. Seeing how the school does emphasize religion it does have a strong background in that respect.
