Our school day is 8:10 AM – 3:10 PM for grades K-8.
Kindergarten and 1stGrades have a lead teacher and teacher’s aide, with an average class size of 18-20 children.
All lower school classes are self-contained with daily instruction in primary academic subjects including; spelling, literature, science, mathematics, language arts, social studies and penmanship. Our reading curriculum involves a combination of teaching methods including phonics, letter and word recognition, and decoding strategies to accommodate a diversity of learning styles. Cursive handwriting is taught beginning in 2nd grade.
All students receive religious instruction with focus on the Catholic faith and values with their application in everyday life. Art, music, drama, physical education, technology, and Spanish language studies provide varied opportunities for students to explore areas of interest and further develop their skills and talents.
The majority of our teachers communicate in ‘real time’ using various behavioral apps, keeping parents informed on progress throughout the day.
Saint Patrick School uses the NWEA Map testing system.
