Welcome to the St. Mary's Middle School
The Middle School is a great place to learn! St. Mary's students work together with their teachers to explore, create, and make connections. Kids are well-known in the Middle School, and everyone has the opportunity to participate actively in the daily life of our community.
The Middle School day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. Many students stay on campus after dismissal, working on homework in the Callaway Library, getting help from a teacher, attending sports practice, or just hanging out with friends.Students moving up from our Middle School to high school:
- are resilient, flexible learners with a solid skill base
- understand that they play an important role in their communities
- are eager to learn, both independently and with others
- have the hearts and minds of explorers. They will persevere.
Service to the community is an integral part of the St. Mary's experience. Middle School students are required to complete at least ten hours of service per year.

Every Middle School student is assigned an Adviser who is also a Middle School teacher. Adviser Groups meet the last fifteen minutes of the day. The intent of the Adviser system is to foster a sense of belonging for each student, and to ensure that each student has an adult who knows him or her well and can serve as a resource and point of contact.
Middle School Sports
