Welcome to MSW, A Blue Ribbon School of Excellence
Welcome to the Mary, Seat of Wisdom School website. Our website gives you a glimpse of daily life at MSW. Look around. You’ll see that our teachers, administrators, and staff are committed to providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for our students by providing the best learning opportunities for students. Our strong Catholic identity is a point of pride. Our mission is to instill in our students the foundation necessary to go out into the world as lifelong learners, with a Christian spirit, well prepared for high school and for life.
Click on the link above and on the tabs at the top of this page and you’ll see that we offer a rich educational experience that combines academic, religious, social, artistic, athletic and extra-curricular elements to help each child develop to his or her fullest potential. And, you’ll see many ways that parents can get involved too, as well as our many vehicles for communications.
Throughout this website you will find information about the special programs both academic and extracurricular, that set our pre-school, full-day kindergarten, elementary and junior high school programs apart from other educational options in Park Ridge and around Chicago’s Northwest side. You’ll get the chance to briefly meet our dedicated teachers and you’ll find a school calendar and weekly newsletters to keep you on top of all that is going on at MSW.
We look forward to getting to know you and to learning how we can serve you and your family. My door and that of our Assistant Principal Julie Due, is always open to students, parents and prospective families. If you have any questions or would like to tour the school, please give us a call at 847-825-2500. We thank our current parents for entrusting their children to our care and we look forward to welcoming new families to our school community in the near future!
