Saint Margaret embraces a traditional philosophy of Catholic Education. We do not teach to the test, we teach to the Person! Each and every child is a human person with tremendous potential. Saint Margaret’s seeks a close working cooperation between parents, teachers and students in the overall formation of the young person. While tests are important, our school is about so much more.
