At St. Mary’s, we believe children grow through positive reinforcement and a creative approach to the basics. Our curriculum is centered on Language Arts & English, Reading, Science, Math, Social Studies, Music, Art, Physical Education, and Spanish.
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION: PRESCHOOL, PRE-KINDERGARTEN, KINDERGARTEN
We offer children developmentally appropriate hands-on programs in language arts, math, science, music and programs to enhance fine and gross motor skills.
ELEMENTARY EDUCATION: FIRST THROUGH FOURTH GRADE
Small class size and a qualified staff provide the attention and instruction needed to bring out the very best in each student. The acquisition of exceptional reading, grammar, spelling and math is the goal for our elementary students.
IOWA TEST OF BASIC SKILLS (ITBS)
The ITBS is a nationally standardized test and accomplishes three important goals:
1. To describe each student's developmental level within a test area.
2. To identify a student's areas of relative strength and weakness in subject areas.
3. To monitor year-to-year growth in the basic skills.
