St. Mary Catholic School, Royal Oak, Michigan
How do we know a school is outstanding?
- When the principal is the first person to greet us.
- When students ask questions we have not heard before.
- When students are engaged and interested in learning.
- When teachers stay during a presentation and listen intently.
Our visit to St. Mary had checks in all of these boxes. 70% of teachers hold Master's degrees in Education.
Gabriela Bala, Principal remarks:
"When we walk into the classrooms, we see in the children's faces what we love about St. Mary School . . . happy children who feel safe, appreciated, and loved! St. Mary Catholic School provides the environment necessary to produce well-educated young minds and spiritually-motivated children of God."
These are not simply wish words. We saw this firsthand.
Congratulations to St. Mary Catholic School! — thank you for inviting us into your special world.
