School Notes:

St. Aloysius School believes that each child is unique, and we accept each child as a sacred trust.  Accordingly, we affirm our responsibility to treat students with a deep respect as they grow toward human wholeness.  Through a positive approach, we strive to foster a healthy self-concept, which enables the maturing students to recognize and to fulfill their responsibilities to God, to self, and to others.

St. Aloysius School has effectively focused its organizational structures on supporting the high achievement of all students.  The curriculum provided is standards-based and purposely organized for the entire academic year in an effort to ensure that all topics have been covered.  The methods used to present the curriculum encompass a variety of modalities and techniques. The teachers look to the administrator for appropriate guidance in developing their curriculum in a manner that best meet the unique needs of their learners.  Teachers collaborate to design an organizational structure in their classroom, which creates a continuum of learning throughout the school.  The pastor and school board support the efforts of the principal and teachers and consult with them on a variety of matters, which directly impact the success of student learning.
