Saint Matthew School was founded in 2001 and is home to 445 students in Pre-K though 8. The motto of our school: Seeking Knowledge, Modeling Christ, and Serving Others is the guiding force behind every aspect of daily life at our school. The high standards of Christian character, conduct, and service are developed as students embrace our motto. We welcome students of all faiths and our teachings contribute to the character development of all our students.
In fall 2017, Saint Matthew was named a Blue Ribbon School. The following year, in 2018, SMS launched our inclusive education program, opening our doors to students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. SMS was also named Williamson's Best preschool, elementary school, and middle school in 2021.
Our students supplement their academic endeavors with the opportunity to participate in our competitive sports teams, and co-curriculars including Science Olympiad, Mathletes, Model UN, and Drama/Forensics.

Saint Matthew Catholic School Reviews
How childish that this parent is angry about punishments given - clearly the result they wanted was not handed out. Parents read and accept the handbook, which states the discipline path that will be followed and we've seen it followed consistently on all occasions. A parent's money doesn't give him a right to demand a deviation from this plan.
