St. Patrick School is a Catholic School serving a culturally, ethnically, and economically diverse community. In addition to a rigorous academic program the concepts of love, community, reconciliation, responsibility for self, generosity, tolerance, and social justice are integral to the curriculum. More importantly, these values are observable every day in the interactions and attitudes among teachers, parents, and students.

St. Patrick School provides faith-based education in a safe, nurturing environment. The curriculum helps a child grow not only intellectually, but also emotionally and spiritually. Parents play an active role in the education of their children. How all these factors come together and are expressed in the day-to-day interaction of the members of the St. Patrick community is what sets us apart.

At St. Patrick School, we never lose sight of the importance of each child as we recognize each other as unique gifts from God. Therefore, every student’s potential to learn, grow and to make a difference is fostered. We challenge the intellect, nurture the spirit, and help the individual build character.

Our school does more than prepare our students for tests in the classroom – we prepare them for tests in life. At St. Patrick School, our school is a place where high academic standards meet high moral standards. We are a school where the values of respect and compassion are not only encouraged; they are expected. We are “like family.”
