St. Mary Magdalen Student Body at a Glance
We are proud to serve a diverse population at our school, which serves the greater Everett area. Our study body comprises:
- Over 400 students in preschool – eighth grade, approximately 88% of whom are Catholic.
- Many ethnicities, including those of Asian/Pacific Island descent (21%); Latino/Hispanic descent (13%); African-American descent (5%); and white/caucasian descent (46%). An additional (15%) of students identify as multiracial.
- Multiple linguistic backgrounds. In addition to English, the primary languages spoken in school families’ homes are Vietnamese, Spanish, Tagalog, Italian, and Polish.
- Diverse learners. Students in first – fourth grades with special learning differences are offered the opportunity to receive additional help from our Reading Specialist, who uses the Slingerland methodology, which is a simultaneous, multisensory, structured approach for teaching language arts and reading. Students in fifth – eighth grades receive services and accommodation as needed. We also have a Diversified Learning Specialist who works with students needing specific accommodations.
