Saint Margaret’s School provides a strong classical curriculum in the areas of academic, aesthetic, social, moral, spiritual and physical in the important formation of the whole child.
Saint Margaret’s School is family oriented in the belief that the family is the first and most important educator of their children and that the school exists to support the family’s endeavor to form each child as a citizen of this world and of the next, most important world.
The students then go to their roomy, cheerful classrooms for religion class followed by the language arts classes of reading, English, spelling and vocabulary.
Math, science and social studies, Spanish and Latin make up the other core classes.
In the afternoon the children participate in the continuation of the core subjects and the enrichment classes of art, music, PE, library, and computers.
A classical curriculum calls for memory work which is one of the strengths of a young student.
Saint Margaret’s students undertake the challenge of memorizing poetry, psalms, Biblical quotations, important literature, math facts and other material.
The students are encouraged to read the great classics.
The students in grades 3-5 are invited to participate in the Great Books Program whereby they read one of the assigned stories outside of class and then meet to discuss the story.
In the fall the students enjoy playing volleyball in a volleyball league.
Later they can join the basketball team and in the spring, participate in track.

Great atmosphere and staff My daughter seems to thrive with the one on one attention she sometimes needs and takes great pleasure in the group lessons as well. The teachers have a very effective system of directing the kids towards good behavoir and kindness. They also do a wonerful job running fundraisers with parent volunteers to keep the school affordable.
