It is a very tight knit school, and becomes like second family. The school offers a wide range of extra curricular activities that engage students, parents and community, and displays the integrity of each and every student and their dedication to the schools mission.
Saint Mary's High School was a really nice school to go to considering how small it was. It was very easy to get to know everyone in the school and all of the teachers because of the small class sizes. The one thing that I find to be an issue with the high school is that it is treated more like a financial institution rather than an educational institution. Money was concentrated in only certain areas, such as particular sports teams. This makes it hard to support other programs. The fall and spring productions are always wonderful with all of the talent that is present in the school but the lack of budget makes it hard to execute the stage, props, and other necessities for the productions. Another place that this effects is sports teams, some sports teams aren't given enough money or resources to even come close to what they need. For example the track and rowing team are not only given the budget but also the equipment to be successful.
