About the School
Located in the Bronx neighborhood of Westchester Square, Santa Maria School has been educating children since 1951. The school offers rigorous academics and a caring, values-based atmosphere for students in grades Pre-K3 to 8th.
A small Catholic school with one class per grade, Santa Maria is a tight-knit family. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to providing the individual attention and discipline students need to succeed. Students receive daily instruction in Catholic teachings, traditions, and values. We welcome children of all faiths, as their diversity enriches our community.
Santa Maria School maintains a close relationship with its parish. Click here to visit the parish website.
