St Margaret Mary School Ratings & Reviews

This school has provided me with a good foundation for high school. Teachers try to help you so you do not fall behind. The principal is very strict and can seem mean until you are in 8th grade, then she gives you a break. You then realize why she was so strict over the years, but in a way it has paid off, because she stops treating you like a little child. However, for the TACHS exam, if you do not pick schools she likes, you will never hear the end of it. She will try to convince you to change your mind about the schools you chose, but at the end of the day, she isn't paying your tuition, so your choice is your choice. There are no fun after school activites or sports programs, that are free. There is an after school program but you have to pay, and all you do is homework. You don't do arts and crafts or anything of that sort when you have finished your homework. My years at St. Margaret Mary has been a joy even though sometimes there were difficulties along the way. The school is also somewhat family oriented and that's also good. This school is great academic wise, but not for sports or anything in that sort. This school can use some improvement.

My son is currently enrolled in SMM since preK and is starting Kindergarden and I can honestly say its a great school. For his age he really advanced. Sr. Veronica is strict but I wouldnt want it any other way. The teachers and principal are very involved and if your child falls behind is because your not doing your part. SMM is not a play ground and if you expecting leniency then its not the school for your child. Who wants to pay for a childs education and not expext them to learn discipline and structure and over all get a great education.

I attended this school from 4th grade-8th grade (class of 2003), and over all I have a great experience at this school. Yes it was VERY strict but I expected that from a Catholic school. One thing I did not like was the principle (Sr.Ann Veronica). She told my mother my sister (who also attended this school) and I will not make it in life because my parents didn't know english. That was very ignorant, we are both now college graduates.

This is an excellent local school, with an emphasis on academics. My oldest child has attended this school since Pre-K, and was accepted in a number of prestigious high schools. The principal does not expect anything less than full effort from the students and the parents, and does not tolerate anything that sidetracks the children from academic excellence! The problem is that some parents believe that paying for a private school education affords them some form of entitlement, and they have a reality check when they confront Sister Ann Veronica. As a side note, there was a point in time where there were shows that show cased the talents of the children, but due to an unfortunate event several years ago with some unruly guests these activities were suspended to protect the children. If the parents cannot make a good judgment calls as to who you invite into your children s lives, then they must deal with the consequences. The principal will ensure their safety first, parents need to understand that if they want their children to succeed . Then you leave the certain behaviors outside of the school, and let the teachers do their jobs, they are not babysitters.
