The mission of Our Lady of Fatima School is to provide, in a creative atmosphere, a child-centered education of academic excellence for our students from preschool through eighth grade.
It is based on Catholic principles and traditional Christian values supported by strong family commitment.
The community of Our Lady of Fatima School believe that our fundamental purpose is to provide a truly Catholic education for our students.
Since education is a preparation for complete being, the entire school community works together to foster the emotional, moral, social, and physical development leading to knowledge and excellence.
We encourage our students to strive to reach their full potential, to prepare them to function responsibly in a democratic society, and to lead a productive life.
Our philosophy is based on a code of Christian conduct.
To teach as Jesus did, we must develop in our students a clear understanding of the teachings of Jesus and His church, a sense of personal integrity, the love of thy neighbor that stems from civic involvement and social action, and accountability to God as Father.
By adhering to this code, we strive as a community to teach our students individual responsibility that gives witness to Christian beliefs and values.

I enrolled my oldest daughter (pk) here because of the warm, loving environment despite there being a catholic prek much closer to home. Later on I also enrolled my youngest- this school is amazing and set very high standards for what we expect at school. This school is the perfect example of community and teamwork.

We love Fatima School! Warm, nurturing, welcoming school for students and parents. The small class size has been amazing for my daughter - she has made great strides w/ her math after joining the school this year. We have also seen her come out of her shell as there are lots of great activities in the school that all are encouraged to join. We were in public school prior and we love the attitude of respect at this school - kids are polite and well mannered - not what we were seeing in the public school. You can't fall thru the cracks here - its a place where everyone knows your name. We feel Fatima is providing our daughter with great foundation for her future. Check it out.
