St Elizabeth School

  • The mission of St. Elizabeth School is to provide our students with the opportunity to reach their full potential in a Catholic school atmosphere of love, trust and hope.
  • We strive to mold these students into whole persons, in whom knowledge, habits, attitudes and values are developed side-by-side with academic achievement.
  • Our programs are continually evolving and specifically targeted to meet the diverse and changing needs of our Washington Heights population.
  • By reflecting the example of Jesus with all whom we meet, we promote a family-like environment where all members of the school community – parents, teachers, administration, clergy and staff – take part in the development of the child.
