Superintendent's Welcome

  •    Welcome to St. Mary Parish Schools
    Superintendent Armato
    St. Mary Parish is a school district committed to providing a quality education for all students. The district has worked to develop and maintain a reputation as an elite, proactive, and successful school district dedicated to student achievement as its top priority. As superintendent, it is my responsibility to place students at the forefront of all decision-making while supporting teachers with the necessary resources for effective instruction. Working together with stakeholders, my goal is to respect, support, and set high expectations for all employees to ensure a valuable, productive, and safe educational environment.
    I personally invite you to discover St. Mary Parish from this virtual environment. In addition to district and school directories, the website provides helpful information such as school board policies, cafeteria menus, bus routes, and links to individual websites for each of our 23 schools. Parents are encouraged to obtain login information from their child’s school to access attendance and class grades through the Student Progress Center.
