St. Margaret Mary Catholic School was established in 1952 as a vital part of the parish community. In partnership with parents, the faculty and staff nurture the students through faith formation and academic excellence, while celebrating the unique gifts and talents of each student. Recognized for the second time as a National Blue Ribbon School, St. Margaret Mary Catholic School is focused on academic excellence, character development, and faith formation. Our mission challenges us to value each learner while providing assistance to students across the learning spectrum. We provide challenging and enriching programs for our gifted students as well as supplemental and remedial programs for students who struggle academically. Recognizing that all students have preferred learning styles, our teachers are experienced in providing differentiated learning opportunities through a variety of 21st century modalities. Students at St. Margaret Mary have access to modern technology that enhances their learning and school experience. In addition to the traditional academic program, students are offered a wide variety of special area classes, such as technology, art, music, Spanish, library, drama and physical education every week. Teachers and parents also facilitate a variety of after-school enrichment opportunities such as academic teams, clubs, and sports. With a school-wide commitment to service, all students are actively involved in outreach service projects throughout the school year. The school staff is focused on meeting the needs and interests of the whole child so that they may flourish in the school, parish community and beyond.
