Facilities

Campus


St. Margaret Mary’s campus includes the main school building, which houses a state-of-the-art, Discovery Learning Lab, computer lab, and thirteen fully equipped classrooms. Our modern activity center includes a full size gym, additional classrooms, and a fully functional kitchen for special events.

Computer Lab

The school’s computer lab plays an important role in students’ studies. Classes visit the lab on a weekly basis. Younger students are taught typing and computer skills while older students use the computer lab to further their studies by researching topics online. The lab is also used to create and maintain web sites that relate to school projects.

Classroom Technology
In addition to the school’s computer lab, computers are available for student use in each classroom. The school also houses five smart/promethean boards that are used to enhance the educational program in all subject areas.

St. Margaret Mary’s students take full advantage of the school’s state-of-the-art Discovery Learning Lab. The lab provides students with a warm, inviting environment in which to engage their hands and minds in guided, self-directed exploration. Highlights include live animals, multimedia technology, and a collaborative partnership with Trout Unlimited, a unique conservation program that teaches the importance of protecting our waterways by raising fish in the classroom.

Gym / Activity Center

The activity center serves multiple purposes to our school and parish community. Because of the many conveniences the facility offers, including meeting rooms, ample parking, and accessibility, the activity center is the location for a variety of events including the annual St. Patrick’s Day dinner and dance, the school’s Halloween party, and breakfast with Santa as well as many community meetings.

Built in 1998, the activity center’s gymnasium plays host to St. Margaret Mary team practices and home games. In addition to a high school regulation basketball court, the gym has six basketball hoops that allow coaches to structure full practices with their teams in an open and safe environment. Championship banners hang from the rafters with more to be added soon. The two scoreboards, spacious fan seating, and full kitchen and concession allow all spectators, both home and visitors, a great venue to watch youth games. Regardless of the event, in many ways, the St. Margaret Mary Activity Center is our home away from home.
