What the Class of 2020 Wants Prospective Parents to Know about SMS

Just before graduation, we asked the Class of 2020 what they would tell prospective parents considering SMS for their child.  Here is some of what they had to say.


It is worth every penny! They will not only get a superior education that will truly prepare them for high school, but all of the other experiences through relationships with teachers and staff, friendships that develop for a lifetime, and a sense of comfort and safety is priceless. 

SMS is a welcoming, supportive environment where students form close friendships over the years and have the chance to learn about their faith and who or what they want to be in life. 

SMS is a very safe and healthy learning environment that really prepares you for the future. SMS is one big happy family. - Julia

SMS is a great school, and it teaches very important life lessons. Also, I really like how the classes are so small because your teachers really get to know you and understand your strengths and weaknesses. 

There is a strong sense of community unique to SMS. Teachers care for their students and the students are very friendly.

it is such a loving environment and all of the teachers and students are beyond kind and I am so lucky to have had such an amazing education there. The teachers are so sweet and they are so loving. When you come into SMS they immediately treat you like family!

SMS is an incredible school! At SMS, every student can thrive in a supportive environment and aspire to be anything they wish.

SMS has been my home for 10 years and I can’t imagine going to middle school and elementary anywhere else. Saint Mary’s sense of community is so strong and you are friends with every student, younger or older!
