    St. Mary has provided our children with a wonderful education in a safe and loving environment. As our children grow older we realize that the number of athletic and extra-curricular activities that have access to at St. Mary far outweighs other area schools. The student to teacher ratio, the faith-based experience and the outstanding teachers have made this one of the best investments we could have made for our children.

    St. Mary School System is dedicated to helping students develop academically and spiritually. The class sizes are small, so it is easy for the teacher to have one-on-one time with each student. This provides the opportunity for extra help if it is needed. There are many clubs, sports, and activities to choose from at St. Mary. There is something for everyone. I would not change anything about St. Mary. This school system has provided me with lifelong friends, family, and an overall amazing support system.
    St. Mary has given me opportunity after opportunity. In my 5 years with this school system, I have grown tremendously as a person and a student. St. Mary provides students with a faith-based education that challenges them to think critically. I have been pushed to be the best version of myself, and I am so glad I have had the opportunity to be a Viking.
