Welcome to St. Mary School
At St. Mary, students, teachers, and parents work together to create a positive environment that fosters scholastic, social, and spiritual growth. St. Mary students have many opportunities to live their faith as they study together, pray together, and reach out to assist others around them. Our dedicated staff works very hard to provide a variety of challenging and exciting learning experiences for students. And, parent involvement in our school is tremendous. We invite you to explore our website and contact us online or at (608) 742-4998 to schedule a visit.
Catholic Schools are an integral tool of evangelization. We prepare each child spiritually, scholastically and socially to excel at the next level. The students in all grades interact in a nurturing learning environment. We achieve this through a high level of parent, teacher and parish community involvement.
