Saint Mary School...
a great place to grow and learn!
What our alumni say:
Saint Mary School helps you to discover who you are and the kind of person that you want to be. When you get to high school, you make friends that reflect the good morals you took with you from elementary and middle school.

I started Saint Mary School as a kindergartner and recently graduated after nine years!  I have seen the school grow...from the construction of the new gym to the creation of a state-of-the-art computer lab.  The school provides an exceptional learning experience and is a great environment for kids of all ages. Saint Mary’s gave me a great foundation to excel in High School, academically, spiritually and socially.

Saint Mary School helped improve my character and spirituality. The small school environment and strong teacher-student ratio helped me academically, which helped me build self-confidence. The teachers at Saint Mary School are wonderful and I am grateful to have had them.

Saint. Mary School has instilled in me good values and character; going into high school I knew who I was and what I valued, so I wouldn't make bad choices. The small school environment helped me try things…such as Yearbook and Student Council.

Saint Mary School was a place where I was genuinely excited to go to every morning.  There, I grew in my faith; made lasting friendships, and reinforced important values, such as integrity, independence, 
responsibility, and teamwork.

When we chose SMS, we not only found a great school – we found a home.  Moving from New York City was a big change for our family, especially for our 1st grader and preschooler.  The warmth, vitality, and spirit of the SMS community immediately embraced us, and that support has given each of us – kids and parents alike – the comfort and confidence to grow and thrive.

Besides providing my children with a locally and nationally recognized top-notch education, Saint Mary School has given my children the ability and the desire to see God in everything and everyone.  This very special gift is something that no test will ever be able to score but we know that their Faith will serve them well and often throughout their entire lives.
Chris and Gina Spahn
I was amazed at the credentials and obvious dedication of Middle 
School faculty.  They are clearly committed not only to Catholic 
education, but the highest standards in all subjects.
Peter Harrington

Kelley was prepared for high school. She has adjusted well, and with 
seemingly little effort, both socially and emotionally. Her particular 
strengths are her ability to accept and tackle a heavy workload. Kelley 
is organized, focused, and disciplined, with good study habits.
Nancy and Jim Gibson

As parents, we have always considered the greatest gift that we could 
provide our children to be a superior, faith based education.  In Saint 
Mary School, we have found an institution dedicated to reinforcing the 
values and morals we stress at home while at the same time 
encouraging our children to reach their academic potential.  The entire staff works tirelessly and is dedicated to creating a nurturing, close knit, schools and the recent Blue Ribbon recognition only reinforces that conviction.
Chris and Laura Arnold

Our daughter, Brooke, was ready, willing, and able to attend Ridgefield High School.  Saint Mary School gave our daughter the confidence and self-assurance she needed.
