St. Mary's Philosophy of Education

"Go into the world and proclaim the good news to all creation." (Mark 6:15)

In embracing this mission of Jesus, the staff of Saint Mary School strives to encourage Christian commitment in children, families, and colleagues. In an orderly and peaceful atmosphere, our goal is to lead each child toward a realization of his/her worth before God.

Through multicultural awareness, we seek to nurture children's global perspective and responsibility. From such knowledge springs a child's desire to work toward his/her potential.

The staff provides the tools necessary for students to achieve academic excellence and to function in today's competitive world. The staff encourages problem solving, making positive choices, developing right relationships, and taking on responsibilities so that students can grow into capable, inquisitive, and faith-filled young men and women.

Recognizing that parents are the first educators, the staff welcomes continued participation and ongoing partnership in the education of children. Parent support and participation in the life of the school is invited, We are convinced that only through such cooperation can fruitful development of our children take place.
