Welcome & Why SMS?
“We have been a Saint Matthias School family for four years, and it has been the best decision we've made for our two sons. They are receiving an excellent education in a Christ-centered environment. SMS is true to their motto of Faith, Caring and Excellence. We love the teachers and opportunities our children have outside of the classroom. We are grateful for the positive values our children are learning that will carry them throughout their lifetime. This is truly a community where all are welcome. Thank you Saint Matthias.” -SMS Parent
