Norfolk Catholic Elementary School

  • Sacred Heart Elementary School is a Pre-K through 6th grade elementary school located on the Norfolk Catholic Schools' campus in Norfolk, Nebraska.
  • We currently reside in a beautiful building due to the generosity and forward-thinking of our parish and our parishioners.
  • It's hard to believe, but we'll be entering our sixth year in our "new building" in the fall of 2008.
  • However, as you know, it's what happens Inside the school that really matters.
  • We are quite fortunate in that respect, too, as our teachers and staff work incredibly hard to truly teach "as Jesus did." We currently teach 405 students--from 48 Pre-Kindergarten four year old to 54 sixth graders.
  • We have 18 classroom teachers as well as teachers in the special areas of music, art, computers, band, and physical education.
  • We have a wonderful library and two mobile computer labs that our students constantly use.
  • The mission of Norfolk Catholic Schools is to support parents in their role as the primary educators of their children by providing resources, within a Catholic environment, that will enable students to become good stewards in their life's vocations.
