Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

St. Mary's is a private catholic day school and is famous for developing its students academically, spiritually and physically.
SMS programs deliberately promote self expression, discipline and God-centered living. SMS encourages its students to be communicators, principled, open-minded, innovative and caring. This is why a Saints student takes maths, prayers, rugby, charity work, drama and violin all in his stride. It also explains why Saints students are usually all rounded confident individuals. This is also why the school has gained a reputation for molding just such leaders. So at Saints the question is not what will your child be when they grow up but rather what can’t they be.

SMS is an IB Diploma School.
