What Our Families Say
The Diederich family
There are so many great things about SMHOCS that makes this school amazing. I could point out the smaller classroom sizes, the outstanding staff led by principal Mrs. Kirks, and the overwhelming sense of community. But most important, is the values of respect, forgiveness, and faithfulness. I couldn’t be happier and strongly invite you to come see for yourself all the amazing things our school has to offer.
The Jerzak Family
St. Mary Help of Christians School is a really special place to be. My daughters love going to school. Along with them gaining a great education, they are learning important values. One of my favorite things about St. Mary’s is how all the grades mingle and treat one another with respect and integrity. It warms my heart.
Sean and Kayla Bruggeman
St. Mary Help of Christians School has been one of the best investment decisions we have made. From the Principal, Teachers and the Staff, they truly care about their students. The smaller class sizes are great and enables the teachers to support each student and teach to their individual strengths and abilities. We love the faith-based environment and the spirit of family and community within. Our experience has been nothing short of AMAZING.
