The History of SMM
Founded in 1921 by Cardinal George Mundelein, St. Margaret Mary School is a Roman Catholic elementary school that serves West Ridge and the surrounding community.
Originally established to meet the needs of the Luxembourg community, the school's student body has dramatically changed to reflect the current day community of West Ridge – one of the Chicago's most diverse neighborhoods. It is with great joy that we share our cultural backgrounds.
Since its beginning, St Margaret Mary Parish has grown to 800 families with the school educating roughly 180 students each year from preschool to eighth grade. We invite you to join us.
