School Reviews

Saint Stanislaus School will be partnering with Talcott Mountain Science Center beginning in the 2013-14 school year to provide science enrichment and relevant uses of technology in the curriculum. Saint Stanislaus School was founded in 1897 by a group of Polish immigrants who wanted to create a God-centered learning environment where prayer, advanced study, and service were emphasized. Our school curriculum exceeds the national Common Core standards and enhances the knowledge and skills of our students so that they can think critically and become productive moral citizens within a multicultural and technological society. TMSC Talcott Mountain Science Center began in 1967 with a dedication to hands-on, inquiry-based science that leverages a child''s natural sense of wonder and critical thinking skills to provide a natural outlet for their curiosity and problem solving abilities. The merger of these two great institutions will provide a richer experience for our students. Saint Stanislaus School: Home of High Academic Achievers and Followers of Gospel Values
