We Took A Tour!

"On my way to visit Marian Middle School I had not realized it is in the middle of Tower Grove South! What a great neighborhood find! The building is old and interesting, and the school works hard to keep it neat, clean, bright, and reflective of the learning community there. I learned a lot about Marian..." More

  • Marian community has a loving spiritParent 11/30/2015
    I felt a part of the Marian community when I saw how it operates. I love the concern of the teachers to help keep the girls in line and show that someone cares. I am grateful for the spirit of the people who surround the children. I have yet to meet anyone without a loving spirit.
  • Marian helps me educate my childParent 11/30/2015
    Marian has been extremely helpful in assisting me with educating my child according to her ability to learn at her level of learning. We feel most a part of the Marian community when we attend the volleyball games and all the parents come together as one to aid and assist in any way in support of our girls. I am most grateful for the assistance that is given to my family, allowing my child to receive a quality education regardless of our income.
