    My son has loved his experience at St Marys Marian Division. He was transitioning from a Montessori School which was completely lacking in the basics. He has loved all of his teachers including the religion course. He was not raised Catholic but the school has made him feel welcome. I think the administration has lovely well educated dedicated individuals sheparding St Mary's into a great future.

    Awful. St. Mary's was a great school until the new administration came in. Teachers and students alike are genuinely fearful of this oppressive administration. Grace Cotter Regan is a self-absorbed narcissist and has her own agenda. She will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Mismanagement of the school budget has led to a significant increase in tuition over the past 2 years. This was not the school that I enrolled my first daughter in 5 years ago. There is a completely new administration full of unqualified people. Mark Difabio is completely out of touch and is better off not working in the school system. He has made absurd rules and changes since coming to the school. He is the reason why I am pulling my younger daughter from the school. Complete tyrant who has no sense of compassion. The board of trustees ought to open their eyes and see what Grace Cotter Regan and Mark Difabio have done to St. Mary's.

    There are lots of good things going on recently. A new head of school and principal will move forward to build on the school's strengths. An array of courses are offered through the virtual high school to complement classroom learning. My student has taken honors and AP classes and is ready to move on to a very challenging college. We are meeting kids from all over the world while remaining a part of our child's high school life!

    Its the same school. More than 75 percent of the students graduate wit honors and it simply to the fact that its too easy The kids get away with most anything they want because they don't want to lose a student. I think people should inquire about the drop out percentage at St. Marys and actually asked to be shown documentation. I never realized how many kids leave after one year because its the curriculum of an elementary school. Definitely not challenging or rewarding and there are no good programs that public schools have to offer. Please do your homework before enrolling your child here.

    I don't know what school the last poster's child attends but it is not the school both my older child graduated from or the one my younger child is in the top ten of her graduating class in. My older child will gratuate college this year with two bach. degrees thanks in part to the great base he got at St. Mary's. My younger child has been fielding offers from colleges since 10th grade and no she does not play sports not that there is anything wrong with that. As with any education a child only gets out of it what they put in this is what I have taught my children. The teachers they have both had have been fantasic and dedicated can't imagine who this person's child had.

    My three girls are graduates and my son expects to attend next fall...Our family experience has been great! the administration teachers students and staff make up a close family where all are welcome. As a result my girls all received scholarships and attended the colleges of thier choice. Ap courses and an honors program are available and the extracurricular activities provide a well rounded experience in a accepting christian atmosphere in the catholic tradition. I strongly recommend st. Mary's to any parents who want an excellent affordable college prep education for their sons and daughters.

    I attended St Mary's Jr?Sr High School for 4 years & it was the greatest experience of my life. The teachers were always willing to help in any wawy they could they were always an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. Any parent thinking about sending there chid there shouldn't have to think twice. No kid is ever left out.
