A Message From Our Principal

Welcome to Saint Mary School!  Since 1855, Saint Mary School has been educating children in the Roman Catholic tradition of faith, academic excellence and service to others.  

I am both excited and honored to lead such an exemplary and high performing school.  I feel privileged to be part of the Saint Mary School and community.  As an educational leader, I value a child centered learning environment where each and every student learns and grows academically, socially and emotionally.  I am also strongly committed to solid, respectful, collaborative relationships among teachers, staff, students, parents, community, and board.

Saint Mary School has a tradition of academic excellence and was recently recognized as a National School of Excellence by the United States Department of Education, a two time Blue Ribbon Award winner.  We offer a rigorous curriculum to prepare our students to be lifelong learners, meeting the benchmarks of the common core standards and the curriculum standards of the Archdiocese of Chicago. At Saint Mary’s School, teachers, administrators and parents work rigorously together to foster Saint Mary’s rich tradition of academic excellence.

I look forward to partnering with you to provide a school that embraces the tradition and values of the Catholic faith where Christian values permeate our entire curriculum and day to day school life.

We invite you to visit Saint Mary School and become a member of the Saint Mary School Family.

In Christ,

Stephanie I. Stoneberg, Ed.D.
