St Jerome Elementary School

Tel: (781)335-1235
Grades: PK - 8 | 202 students
Saint Jerome Catholic Elementary School has provided a welcoming, safe environment for the children from coastal communities south of Boston since 1957.
Recognizing each student as an individual, the faculty and staff are dedicated to the development of the whole child and work to enable each student to meet his or her greatest potential, have a rich spiritual life rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ, and be a Christ-like model in his or her community.
St. Jerome School is committed to the overall Christian formation of each student.
This has everything to do with reading and writing; but even more, it entails helping them to be genuine disciples of Jesus Christ.
There is much that happens here at St. Jerome School.
This site will familiarize you with some of the people and events that make our school an outstanding education facility.
As the pastor of St. Jerome School, I am very proud of our faculty and student body.
They are a rich blessing to the parish, and to the Church.
What a privilege for me to be among them.

School Reviews

Saint Jerome school has been a great experience for my child both academically and socially. The small class size allows the kids get to know their teachers and classmates very well. The school offers many extra curricular activities, such as band, drama, basketball and lego robotics. The school is very much a community of which faith and service are an integral part.
