Mother Of Sorrows Elementary School

Mother of Sorrows School is a Catholic school in which spiritual formation is an integral part of the program.
We are a family, a school family, that is devoted to building a community which encourages the development of our students according to their own cultural pattern, as well as their own individual pace and potential toward the realization of Christian living.
We are dedicated to assisting each family in preparing their children for life and in helping them achieve and develop a life centered in Jesus Christ; a good self-concept; a well-disciplined and orderly mind; a healthy, sound body; an appreciation of the value of knowledge; basic skills; standards of social behavior; creativity; and questioning and analytical abilities.
It is our goal to teach with the same passion and compassion that Jesus did.
It is our goal for our students and their families to interact in a family-like atmosphere as Jesus intended.
All of us working together to foster the feeling of family and fellowship will enable us to offer our children a sound education in the most loving and Christian environment possible.
