Inspired by the vision and spirit of our founder, St. John Neumann, St. Mary’s Elementary School today continues the mission which was Neumann’s: to provide excellence in Catholic education for the children of Lancaster, Depew and surrounding areas.
Indeed, from the founding days of St. John Neumann in 1836 through the present, St. Mary’s Elementary School has left to our community a strong legacy of graduates who have demonstrated a deep sense of love of God, country, neighbor and family.
Today, St. Mary’s Elementary School continues its commitment to foster in our students the ability to be visible examples of the Gospel, especially by being of service to others.
We see as our mission the development of the complete Christ-like person—academically, spiritually, physically, morally, socially and emotionally.
Moreover, through the constant support, presence and commitment of our families, combined with the dedicated efforts and care of our professional faculty and staff, we seek to develop students who combine an enthusiasm for learning and growth with a true respect for and dedication to the values of our community.
Thus, the children educated at St. Mary's Elementary School will take with them into the future the faith, intelligence, responsibility, self-discipline, integrity and compassion necessary to both serve and lead their fellow human beings.
