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

We are so thankful for St. Mary’s School. The teachers and staff are caring, compassionate and there for our children. We chose St. Mary’s for the outstanding academics and we received so much more. The School develops the whole person. Our children have gained morals and values that will be with them forever and carry them throughout life. They look forward to school every day and miss school during the holidays. I am very grateful to St. Mary’s for the gift they have given our family.
