Message from the Principal
Welcome to St. Mary’s School where all of our students learn and grow in an environment that emphasizes spiritual growth, academic excellence and community services. As your Principal of St. Mary’s School, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to be a member of this caring and committed school community.
At St. Mary’s School, our goal is to provide every one of our students with an educational experience that establishes a firm foundation of academic excellence and a rich spiritual journey that focuses on the faith and values of the Catholic Church.
Academic excellence is what we all strive for at St. Mary’s School. This is accomplished through a content-rich curriculum delivered by professional educators who care deeply about teaching and learning. Our dedication and experienced teachers work to design creative lessons that tap each student’s natural curiosity and desire to learn. Class sizes remain small in the belief that relations and individual learning are essential for our student’s growth, development and sense of community.
Parents, school staff and community members all have important roles in developing and supporting a community of life-long learners. As a Catholic school, faith is at the heart of all that we do and all that we teach. Our educators are dedicated to supporting the work of parents, who are the primary teachers of their children. Along with parents we work to instill a love of God and of learning, along with habits of virtue that will help our students meet the challenges of education and of life beyond the school’s walls.
We invite you to learn more about why families choose St. Mary’s School for their children, and our rich history of Catholic education that dates back more than a hundred years. I would love to hear from you and provide a tour or answer any questions that your family has. Please contact me at directly (320) 365-3693 Ext. 215, email me or fill out this simple form.
