At St. Patrick School we offer a warm and caring K-8 learning environment where we guide our students to become Skilled Learners, Thoughtful Individuals, Active Christians, and Responsible Citizens.
We believe that a Catholic education means living with a respect for God, self and others every day, and that this constant presence-of-mind is a critical component to developing a kind, reflective, and responsible student.
We believe that our educational environment consists of traditional values and innovative curriculum that cultivates engaged learners and encourages students to work to their full potential, inspiring them to develop an enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
We believe that a partnership with parents helps our teachers motivate our children in developing their unique talents and gifts with confidence which prepares them for success in premier high schools.
As a community, we prepare our children to become S.T.A.R. students, and upon graduation they will be:
