Our Lady Of Grace School

Tel: (718)375-2081
Grades: PK - 8 | 298 students
Our Lady of Grace School is a Roman Catholic Community of faithfully committed followers of Christ who are living witnesses to teaching as Jesus did, giving service here in Gravesend, Brooklyn.
Our principal objective is to educate the students to meet the intellectual, spiritual, social, physical and cultural challenges of living in the global community as exemplary Christians.
The importance of self discipline, responsibility and the use of good judgment encompasses our belief that intellectual development results by giving students experience in higher-order and critical thinking skills.
We assist the students in their development, both academically and individually, in a complex society.
Fairness, cooperation, unity and innovation help to facilitate a strong spirit amongst the students.
This concept guides the faculty in their mission to explore and implement new ideas in a diverse society.
The students, along with their parents, develop a sense of belonging to an extended family.
Students are encouraged to speak with the teachers to develop a relationship built on trust and understanding.
We acknowledge that Our Lady of Grace School cannot be successful without first understanding the importance of each individual.
We are all God's children working together harmoniously for the benefit of our school, our broader community and ultimately for all humanity.
