Our Mother of Sorrows school is a PreK-8 Catholic school that serves the Tucson community.
With a commitment to academic growth for all students, and filled with the joy of the Gospel, our school proclaims an ongoing encounter with Jesus Christ through community, Word, Sacrament, and loving service.
At Our Mother of Sorrows Catholic School, we try to emulate Mary by responding to God`s call with a yes. Mary modeled God`s call by trusting in God and practicing prayer, compassion, and reflection.
We believe parents are the primary educators of their children, and we partner with parents in this call.
We believe each child is unique and made in God`s image and likeness.
We believe God calls us to holiness.  We believe God calls us to lovingly serve one another and all in need.
