What parents say about St. Matthias School: “When it was time for my husband and I to choose a school for our children, I knew St. Matthias was the place. As an alum, I knew first-hand the type of extraordinary experiences my kids would have here as well as the solid, Christian foundation they would receive. SMS is built on: Faith, Caring, & Excellence. These characteristics set St. Matthias apart. My children are in an environment that allows them to grow spiritually as well as academically; learning what it feels like to be part of a church and school community. The teachers at St. Matthias are smart, caring, and passionate. They are teaching the students character development, decision-making, and helping them build a strong self-esteem. It’s for these reasons along with the parent-teacher, teacher-student, church-family relationships that make St. Matthias rise to the top. Daily, my kids are academically challenged, growing spiritually, and most important of all they come home with a smile. Thank you St. Matthias!”
