St. Mary School Advisory Board


The St. Mary School Advisory Board (SAB) has as its primary concern the intellectual and spiritual development of the students. It is our purpose to assist the students in maturing toward wholesome, worthwhile adjustments to their respective cultural, social and economic environments. It is also our purpose to aid the individual development of talents, opportunities, and personal adjustments both to other persons and to themselves.

The School Advisory Board develops and defines the policies which govern the operation of Saint Mary School. It also provides and advises in the operation of the school. The School Advisory Board is explicitly concerned with the religious and academic philosophy of the school.

The School Advisory Board wishes to promote open communication and encourages parents to discuss concerns with the teachers and administration prior to addressing concerns at a School Advisory Board Meeting. Meetings are typically held the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
