Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School bears witness to the Gospel Message of Jesus. As educators, and Ministers of the Good News, we believe that our vocation is to follow the directive to Teach As Jesus Did and nurture our studentsí God-given talents in an atmosphere of hope, love and trust. As professionals from different backgrounds and experiences, we rely on one another for support and join in creating this family-like environment, to which parents, administrator, clergy and staff all contribute. Educational policies follow the guidelines set by the Superintendent of Schools of the Archdiocese of New York, as outlined in the Administrative Manual, and are influenced by state and national goals. Local school policies are developed and implemented by the Pastor, administrator and faculty and are illustrated in the Parentsí and Teachersí Manuals, which are updated and published annually. We believe that our curriculum reflects the spiral structure of wisdom and skills, from the essential to the advanced and from the concrete to the abstract, and integrates all subjects and learning experiences. Christian values are maintained as academic excellence is achieved. Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School recognizes parents as our partners in instruction. They are expected to honor and support our philosophy and to reinforce it in the home. Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School offers a program of instruction that stresses intellectual, social, personal, and physical development from grade to grade.
