St. Martha Parish School

Providing excellence in Catholic education since 1967

I absolutely love SMS, the principal, and my son's teacher. Thank you for believing in him and giving him a chance! Miss Sassa is an incredible teacher! She truly cares about my son and it is such a relief and a blessing to know he is in such good hands.
