Grades: K - 9 | 216 students
St. Rose of Lima School, established in 1869, is a Roman Catholic parish elementary school with 260 students, PreK-3 to grade 8. We provide a heterogeneous academic environment in a nurturing Catholic faith community where Catholic moral values, service to others, and a positive self-image are developed. The primary grades are self-contained, leading to increased levels of independent thinking in the departmental program in the middle school. We achieve our academic, religious, and social goals through a cooperative effort among the church, home and school. The purpose of St. Rose of Lima School is to develop the whole person through a community experience of faith and life. Within a Catholic Christian community all students learn to respect all forms of life. Our aim is to imbue each student with an awareness of the value of responsibility to oneself and others. Each is challenged to use his or her special gifts in the service of all God's people. The threefold aim of Catholic Christian education is to teach doctrine, build a faith community, and serve others. In accordance with this aim we treat each student as an individual to be challenged to the maximum of his or her potential.
