St. Hilary School is an integral part of the St. Hilary Parish faith community.
The purpose of this elementary school is to provide an atmosphere in which all students strive for excellence: spiritually, morally, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially within a multicultural environment.
The faculty cooperates with the pastor, administration, parents/guardians in offering the guidance and example necessary to initiate and develop Catholic Christian attitudes.
They strive to develop programs of instruction that stimulate the intellectual abilities of each child and enable students to become self-motivated and self-disciplined in the pursuit of academic excellence and life-long learning.
By acknowledging the richness of individual differences in culture, ability, interest, need and motivation, the school will use a variety of current and innovative teaching techniques designed to offer stimulating and dynamic learning experiences.
Within the evangelizing mission of the Catholic Church, St. Hilary School is called upon to encourage students to develop a personal relationship with God, to support active participation in all dimensions of Church life, to foster a sense of community within our multicultural neighborhood.
