Welcome to St. Margaret of Scotland School - a Catholic school rich in tradition and rooted in faith. Academic excellence, school spirit and a commitment to faith have long been the hallmarks of the St. Margaret community.  We are proud of the steps that we have taken in recent years to improve our technology in order to better serve our students.

St. Margaret is a school to watch! Great things are happening here. Under new leadership the curriculum has been redesigned and program offerings continue to expand. Thank you for taking a look at St. Margaret of Scotland or SMOS as we call it.  We are proud of what we have to offer your family.

We like to think of St. Margaret of Scotland as a family and like any good family we look out for one another and take care of each other. Our family tree has roots that are deep and strong. SMOS is steeped in a tradition of excellence and has been an anchor in the Washington Heights community for over 140 years and we take our responsibility to educate our students seriously.

We know that a high quality education is the key to success for our kids and that we are providing the foundation for their future successes. Our school values tradition and has a strong history of academic excellence and school spirit.  Our sports program has been heralded as one of the best in the area.  We offer volleyball, football and basketball in addition to the array of after school and enrichment activities for our students. We also have a beautiful new gymnasium and weight room.

Our alumni are a key part of our family tree. We remain closely connected to our strong network of alumni supporters. They consistently remind us that SMOS provided a foundation for their success and equipped them with values that remain important throughout their life.

We hope that you’ll join the SMOS family and we welcome you with open arms.
