Divine Infant Jesus School is an extension of the education ministry of Divine Infant Parish.
As a Catholic learning community, we proclaim God’s presence each day by creating a Catholic Christian learning environment where our students can safely grow and develop their God given gifts and talents.
We are a school community that reflects the cosmopolitan world in which we live.
Students of different faiths, racial and ethnic backgrounds live and learn together in an environment that recognizes that we are all children of God.
Our focus is to prepare our students for their high school experience and to provide the students with the tools necessary to become life long learners.
The curriculum is rich with student centered activities which allow for the spiritual, intellectual, physical, aesthetic and social growth of each student.

School Reviews

We have been at DI for two years and highly recommend it. My daughter is in Pre-K and my son is in Preschool now. We love the school...the teachers are extremely nurturing, the curriculum is up-to-date and the school has a great family feel to it. We plan on sending our children to DI for their entire grammar school education.

To add to my review...I forgot to mention that the school is wonderfully diverse. It is one of the features that originally attracted us to DI.
