Grades: K - 8 | 210 students
St. George School was opened on September 6, 1927 with an enrollment of 146 pupils and under the pastorship of Reverend George E.
Orr.
The original school consisted of 4 classrooms on the second floor of the original Church building.
Three Sisters of Saint Joseph took on the monumental task of educating the Parish Community's youth at the time, and over the years, the Sisters of Saint Joseph continued to be an influential presence in the school.
The first graduation took place on June 22, 1928 with 13 students graduating.
In June 1951, the old parish convent was converted into additional classrooms to accommodate rising enrollment.
As the Parish Community continued to grow, it was decided by the Pastor at the time, Reverend Thomas P.
Fitzgerald, to build a new school.
The new school opened in January 1965.
For 78 years, our school expanded and educated thousands of students.
Saint George Parish School graduated future doctors, lawyers, professors, accountants, mothers, fathers, religious sisters and priests.
It had been an integral part of so many lives.
As of the closing of the School in June 2005, the total number of graduates reached 2,761.
The memory of Saint George Parish School will live on in the hearts and lives of all those who were privileged enough to walk its halls and sit within its classrooms.
