St. Margaret of Scotland School is a Catholic school rich in tradition and rooted in faith. Faith, Tradition, Excellence and Service have long been the hallmarks of the St. Margaret of Scotland 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.

Faculty and staff collaborate under the guiding leadership of our Principal, Mr. Powers, to continually improve our curriculum and offer the best education for your child. Thank you for taking a look at St. Margaret of Scotland, or SMOS, as we call it.  Great things are happening here and 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. 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 future success. 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, basketball and flag football in addition to the array of after school and enrichment activities for our students. We also have a beautiful full-court gymnasium.

Our alumni are a key part of our family tree. We continue to build a network of alumni, staying connected with everyone who is part of the St. Margaret of Scotland family. Our alumni 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.


God Bless!

Mr. Kevin Powers
