St Laurence Elementary School

  • St. Laurence School is dedicated to students. The administration, faculty, curriculum, and programs are all focused on stimulating each student's full potential.
  • We believe that teaching the truths of our Catholic faith, as well as instilling Christian values, are primary in the education of our children.
  • Parents are the primary educators of their children, with the school assisting the parents in their role as educators.
  • Each child must experience this sense of self-worth as a reality in their relationship with their peers, teachers and parents.
  • In a rapidly changing world, we believe children need guidance, direction, and a capacity to "learn how-to-learn", in order to cope with the complexities of modern life.
