St. Mary's School Parent and Staff Member - written in 2011
I am not an alumna from St. Mary’s, I grew up in the BPS system. When it came time to choose a school for my children, I thought back to my school days. I remember in high school the kids in my classes that had the best study habits and who just seemed to have everything come natural were all St. Mary’s graduates. Our valedictorians were all St. Mary’s graduates. You could tell they were more prepared than any other students to further their education. That's why I chose St. Mary's to send my two girls to, it was the one and only choice!
Callie is having a great year! She was the starting first baseman for the JV softball team, is starting on the JV basketball team, and also playing some varsity! She is loving it at Gross Catholic High School and is doing well academically too! She is already in Geometry. She is so far ahead of some of the kids, especially in Spanish (112%). Wish we had put her in a higher class! I also should have put her in a higher biology class! She says she is doing some of the things she did in 7th and 8th grade at St. Mary's. So glad to know we at St. Mary's are really preparing our students for high school. She recently made the comment that going to Gross was the best decision she could make.
