About Our School
St. Mary's School will welcome, With Open Arms, over 740 students and 61 staff members this year. We first opened 15 years ago as Okotoks second Catholic Elementary School. We are still as determined now as we were then to create an environment where all individuals feel loved and comfortable in our school. We offer a full elementary music program starting in Kindergarten as well as French as a Second Language starting in Grade 1. We permeate Catholic teachings throughout our day and hold all students to high academic expectations. We pride ourselves on the culture of literacy that we have cultivated. We have rich literature in our classroom libraries and dedicated times to read and discuss our reading journey.
St. Mary's School is made up of a community of dedicated individuals. Through the investment of time and effort of all of our stakeholders we have become the school we are. We encourage all members of our community to communicate honestly and openly with each other. We continue focus on strengthening our relationships to allow for all individuals to feel safe and comfortable in our educational setting.
"We are followers of Jesus. We teach, we grow as a Catholic Family. By nurturing the whole child, confident, knowledgeable Disciples of Christ emerge. "
