St. Mary’s Hall Abuse Lawsuits
Demanding Answers After Abuse Suffered at SMH
Schools are supposed to be a safe place for children.
When a school allows abuse, bullying, and harassment to occur, the school quickly transforms from a place that nurtures growth and turns into a source of lasting trauma.
When schools fail to protect students, we will.
At Arnold & Itkin, we’re aware of the abuse at St. Mary’s Hall in San Antonio, Texas.
We’ve listened to survivors and are aware of they are going through. This is unacceptable. Those responsible should have to answer for the lasting pain inflicted on students.

Systemic Abuse at St. Mary’s Hall
In June of 2020, a pair of anonymous Instagram accounts were created. According to the first posts of these accounts, they were created to provide a “safe and inclusive place" for alumni and current students to share their stories of abuse and bullying at the school. One account was created for women to share their experiences, and the other account was created for black students to share theirs.
Since then, both accounts have posted stories that expose systemic occurrences of:
- Sexual abuse
- Verbal harassment
- And more
Arnold & Itkin Is Representing a Former SMH Student
Arnold & Itkin is currently representing a former SMH student who suffered from abuse and harassment. Her situation was made even more difficult by the fact that school officials failed to protect her, even after she reached out for help. Instead, the school ignored the situation, offered no punishments for those who perpetuated abuse, and fostered an atmosphere of cruelty.
We Demand Justice for Students
After reading the stories posted online by past and present SMH students, it’s obvious our client wasn’t the only person to suffer from this school’s dangerous atmosphere. We’re sending a powerful message to SMH that it’s time to take responsibility for the trauma inflicted on its students and stop this from happening to any other children at SMH.
