Our Lady Of Grace School (Closed 2019)
Our Lady of Grace School is a Roman Catholic Community of faithfully committed followers of Christ who are living witnesses to teaching as Jesus did, giving service here in Gravesend, Brooklyn.
Our principal objective is to educate the students to meet the intellectual, spiritual, social, physical and cultural challenges of living in the global community as exemplary Christians.
The importance of self discipline, responsibility and the use of good judgment encompasses our belief that intellectual development results by giving students experience in higher-order and critical thinking skills.
We assist the students in their development, both academically and individually, in a complex society.
The students, along with their parents, develop a sense of belonging to an extended family.
Students are encouraged to speak with the teachers to develop a relationship built on trust and understanding.
