St Mary Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
We have been a very satisfied St. Mary's family for several years but have recently decided to seek other academic opportunities for our children for the following reasons. While the teaching staff is very competent and caring there is a high turnover rate (60% in the past three years, 20% last year). The school is underfunded and over-budget which means they will not be able to update curriculum material. There is money to fund a new science lab, however the text books are not up to date (they do not teach using S.T.E.M. Approach). There is not enough money to buy workbooks I.e. Spelling books so teachers are forced to make copies. There is no guarantee this school will have a full staff for the 2014-15 academic year. That decision will be made after the current registration process is complete and they know how many teachers the school can afford. We have many great memories with our children at this school but we cannot risk their educational outcome during this period of financial instability.
I have 5 kids that have been or have graduated from st.marys. I find the teachers to be above average in every way. Their compassion and patience is wonderful!!! If a child wants to learn, these teachers will go above and beyond to teach them.
