From the Principal


Welcome to St. Mary's School!
St. Mary's is incredibly proud of our tradition and academic excellence.
We have been educating students since 1848!

Our mission at St. Mary's is to live our faith, strive for lifelong academic excellence, and leave the world a better place than we found it. By equally engaging the heart and the mind, we inspire and empower our students to change the world with purpose and understanding. Our students are inquirers. By asking "what" and "why," they begin to understand their role in the "how."

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to their students and our mission. Daily, they create an engaging, meaningful learning environment.

St. Mary's parents are supportive and believe in our purpose. They wholeheartedly engage with our school community and partner with us throughout their child's journey at St. Mary's. 

You will soon see for yourself how and why our school community values:

  • wonder, learning, and discovery
  • diverse ways of thinking and understanding
  • compassionate actions
  • responsibility for oneself and others
  • sharing our gifts with the world

St. Mary School children grow in their love for God and neighbor. We welcome and serve families who want to educate their children in a nurturing, Catholic environment. Together with the St. Mary's community, faculty, staff, and students, we celebrate our Christian traditions and believe God's greater glory contributes to a peaceful and loving today. We hope your family will become a part of ours!

If you have any questions, please contact the office at (330) 832-9355.

Jennifer Fischer
My name is Jennifer Fischer, and I am the principal at St. Mary School and Preschool. I am a parishioner at St. Mary's Parish and have been a St. Mary School parent for many years. I have two children who are St. Mary's and Central Catholic High School alumni. My husband, David, graduated from St. Mary's and Central Catholic and is currently the Superintendent of Sandy Valley Local Schools.

Before joining the team at St. Mary's, I served most recently as the Executive Director and COO of the Massillon Digital Academy in the Massillon City School District. I have also served as the Assistant Director of the East Canton Digital Academy and the eLearning coordinator of the Perry Local School District. I have teaching and leadership experience in the Osnaburg and Plain Local School Districts. However, my first teaching experience was with Wagener-Salley High School in Aiken, South Carolina.

I enjoy showing what the St. Mary's community has done and where we are going in the future. Stop by the school, peruse the website, and call at (330) 832-9355.
