Mission Statement: The mission of St. Malachy’s Memorial High School is to create an environment in which students excel academically and to provide a safe and supportive community which encourages growth and contribution to the larger community.

Vision Statement: St. Malachy’s Memorial High School is committed to educating the whole person. Through a rigorous and comprehensive program of studies we prepare students academically, socially and morally to assume their places as conscientious, involved and contributing members of society.

“Attendance Matters” Please remember that regular student attendance is extremely important. Data clearly shows students who attend class regularly have greater academic success. We are at the start of a new term so there is no better time to commit to regular attendance.
