Due to canceled state testing in the 2015-16 school year, no test data from the public schools is available for comparison. Proficiency on state assessments (TCAP/TNReady) is determined by the scale score earned. Proficiency on St. Mary’s Iowa Assessment is determined by the standard score earned.

Testimonials

St. Mary’s Oak Ridge is a warm and welcoming place that is well situated for the highest level of education. The classes are small enough to allow one on one interaction between the children and the teachers. The school’s approach to education enables all levels of learning to be incorporated in the classes. The interaction between our school and the public school system to facilitate their resources to benefit the education of our children is outstanding.
