ST. MARY'S PARENTS

At St. Mary's High School, we recognize the importance of parental involvement in our students' activities. Our parents are an energetic, vibrant part of our family who wholeheartedly support the students, faculty, and staff at St. Mary’s. All of our students benefit from our parents' time, knowledge, and experience. Our students' successes are a testament to the extraordinary talent and commitment of our teachers, staff, parents, and countless others who  support Catholic schools and help St. Mary’s accomplish our mission to be an excellent Catholic high school.
