St. Bernard School

Tel: (516)731-4322
Grades: PK-8 | 237 students
  • St. Bernard school consists of a kindergarten and nine grades.
  • There are three divisions: the Junior School, Kindergarten and Grades I through III; the Middle School, Grades IV through VI; and the Upper School, Grades VII through IX. Kindergarten has two classes, and Grades I through III are divided into three sections.
  • Grades IV through VIII are divided into two sections, with aproximately twenty boys in each section.
  • There is one ninth grade class.
  • The Junior School introduces boys to reading, writing, and arithmetic, to science, computer, and the arts, and to the very nature of school work, the habits of study, and cooperation.
  • From the start boys do a considerable amount of creative writing, including poetry.
  • With the support and encouragement of their teachers, it gives them a sense of the pleasure of learning.
  • Kindergarten offers readiness activities in reading, mathematics, writing, and social studies.
  • Classes in science, music, athletics, and visits to the library also figure into the curriculum.
  • The arts are crucial to early development, and in addition to studio art and music, the school offers Junior School boys classes in crafts and carpentry.
  • These are particularly useful in developing their dexterity and teaching them to plan and carry out a project.
  • From this beginning we nurture and encourage qualities needed for all future schooling: independence joined to cooperate work and play, mutual respect, and flexibility.
