K – 8 Curriculum

St. Mary’s School offers a curriculum that prepares students for the next academic level and for life. All subjects are taught according to the New York State Common Core Curriculum and Diocese of Buffalo Department of Education standards. Our curriculum promotes academic, spiritual, emotional, physical and social growth.

Combined with a low student-teacher ratio, St. Mary’s School provides an environment that facilitates and encourages independent thinking, problem solving and intellectual curiosity at all levels of learning. The structured curriculum challenges students in a comfortable environment and gives students an expansive foundation in the major academic disciplines, religion and the visual and performing arts.

Core curriculum for grades K-8 include math, science, reading, language arts and technology. Beginning in kindergarten and continuing through grade 8, enrichment classes are offered in Spanish, physical education, art, music, computer technology and library.
