St. Sylvester School is a Catholic, multicultural and multilingual elementary school that is an integral part of the extended community of St. Sylvester Parish.
We are dedicated to teaching our students love, understanding, and compassion as the teachings of Jesus guide and inspire us.
We strive to educate the whole child spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.
Our emphasis is on the mission of the church, which is three-fold: to teach the Gospel message of Christ, to build a community based on Jesus' command to love one another, and to serve the human community through prayer, worship and social action.
