    They are very far behind in knowledge of learning disabilities and technology. Their communication is poor to say the least. The are belittling to children and have NO abilities recognizing gifted children. I can speak of 2 who were pulled from the school labeled by the school as disruptive and fidgety yet tested as gifted and were immediately accepted into a gifted school. If you are not a member of the church as well you will be snubbed by the other parents who are.

    I have 2 kids at St. Marys. We've been happy and its a good value. I have found the middle school to be much more academically challenging than what my child's friends are doing at public schools.

    I love St. Marys I'm in 8th grade and I have gone there scince 2nd grade. There are only like thirty-five kids in each grade with two classes so I know everybody. Everyone is so nice and it's really fun but I also learn a lot.

    I am a single parent and the staff (especially the principal) have gone above and beyond to make sure my child has a good education no matter what the situation is. Thank you to everyone there!

    I found some teachers to be very caring and others to over look very important aspects of kids lives. There were many cliques and 'mean girls' which was never taken care of by any staff including their principal. The subject was brought up many time. St. Pius Holy Family X is a much better suited school.
