Welcome to Saint Mary School, a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, Preschool - Grade 8
Academics for a lifetime… faith for all eternity.
Saint Mary School works closely with our 8th grade families to provide as much support as possible in choosing the high school which will offer the “best fit” for each student.
- In early September, 8th grade parents are invited to attend a meeting in which the process of applying to high schools is discussed in depth. Parents are also given the opportunity to meet individually with our Assistant Principal, Liz Manno, for further assistance.
- Families are notified about Open House dates, and the 8th grade is invited to visit Immaculate High School in Danbury for its Discovery Day in the fall. This event takes place during the school day. Immaculate High School provides transportation and lunch. Saint Mary School faculty accompany our students on the trip.
- Faculty members provide written letters of recommendation for students and are experienced in evaluating students strengths and weaknesses.
- Our 7th and 8th grade students are encouraged to shadow at various area high schools, and are often matched up with a Saint Mary alum for the visit. This is an important step as nothing can quite duplicate the experience of spending an actual day at a school a student is considering.
At Saint Mary School you can be assured that we will do all we can to help families with this important transition.
