Grades: K - 8 | 250 students
St. Dorothy Catholic School educates students from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade in academic and social skills.
The School provides a Christian environment in which the curriculum emphasizes moral, ethical, and spiritual values of the Catholic Church within the world community.
Supporting the belief that parents are the first and primary educators of their children, we as educators at St. Dorothy School pledge ourselves to cooperate with the parents in the important responsibility of preparing children to become contributing members of the community.
To achieve this, we strive to provide opportunities for holistic development in these areas: religious, intellectual, psychological, emotional, social, aesthetic, ecological, physical and Christian service.
In collaboration with parents, we expect to fulfill this responsibility through the presentation, practice, and review of Catholic doctrine, a strong academic curriculum, multimedia and multi-cultural experiences, physical education, extra curricular programs and the dedicated commitment of the teachers and staff.
