Our daily emphasis will be:"Go in peace to love and serve the Lord and one another." St. John Fisher School works in partnership with parents to provide a quality Catholic education for its students.
We promote academic excellence in our standards based curriculum and assessment, and provide an atmosphere which is conducive to learning, and in which each child feels valued.
We believe that each child is a unique creation of God, and are committed to developing each child's gifts by offering support, inspiration, and a variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities.
We empower students to strengthen their personal relationship with Christ by modeling the Catholic faith, and integrating Catholic values and traditions throughout the school.
