The mission of St. Elizabeth School is to provide our students with the opportunity to reach their full potential in a Catholic school atmosphere of love, trust and hope.
We strive to mold these students into whole persons, in whom knowledge, habits, attitudes and values are developed side-by-side with academic achievement.
Our programs are continually evolving and specifically targeted to meet the diverse and changing needs of our Washington Heights population.
By reflecting the example of Jesus with all whom we meet, we promote a family-like environment where all members of the school community – parents, teachers, administration, clergy and staff – take part in the development of the child.
