Tel: (516)731-4322
Grades: PK-8 | 237 students
St. Bernard school consists of a kindergarten and nine grades.
There are three divisions: the Junior School, Kindergarten and Grades I through III; the Middle School, Grades IV through VI; and the Upper School, Grades VII through IX. Kindergarten has two classes, and Grades I through III are divided into three sections.
Grades IV through VIII are divided into two sections, with aproximately twenty boys in each section.
There is one ninth grade class.
The Junior School introduces boys to reading, writing, and arithmetic, to science, computer, and the arts, and to the very nature of school work, the habits of study, and cooperation.
From the start boys do a considerable amount of creative writing, including poetry.
With the support and encouragement of their teachers, it gives them a sense of the pleasure of learning.
Kindergarten offers readiness activities in reading, mathematics, writing, and social studies.
Classes in science, music, athletics, and visits to the library also figure into the curriculum.
The arts are crucial to early development, and in addition to studio art and music, the school offers Junior School boys classes in crafts and carpentry.
These are particularly useful in developing their dexterity and teaching them to plan and carry out a project.
From this beginning we nurture and encourage qualities needed for all future schooling: independence joined to cooperate work and play, mutual respect, and flexibility.
