March 30, 2019 – “This school has taken my middle school daughter who was a confused and lost child in the public school system with poor grades and no interests beyond video games and turned her into an interested and motivated student, an athlete, and a compassionate believer in the teachings of Christ in less than two years. She is now on the path to (hopefully) continue her education in the Catholic high school system in sacramento surrounded by great St. Mary friends. And they do it without a lot of “fluff” at St. Mary’s…it is a comfortable and humble community. I’m extremely grateful to this school.”– Mrs DaFazio, parent
It was the synergy of the faith community at St. Mary School and St. Mary Parish that first attracted us to the school. That vibrant faith remains, and our family is blessed to serve in some of the roles that continue to bring the school and church together. But we’re equally impressed with the myriad of opportunities St. Mary School offers to its students across all grade levels, aptitudes, and interests. From a robust faith-based curriculum across all subjects, to classroom instruction in music, art, and physical education; from extracurricular instrumental and choir groups, to every Parochial Athletic League sport at every level for both boys and girls; from before and after school care, to a variety of clubs sure to pique students’ interests; from academic teams and competitions, to leadership opportunities…St. Mary School has something for everyone! Students graduate from St. Mary School exceptionally well-prepared for their high school experience. And with devoted and caring faculty and staff, and a community of committed families, we feel certain that St. Mary School is well-poised to uphold its long tradition of excellence.
