St. Martin De Porres School
St. Martin de Porres School is a Catholic elementary school whose primary purpose as a Christ-centered community is to teach and practice the message of Jesus.
Like our patron, St. Martin, we make daily prayer, communal worship and service to others an essential part of our life together.
We strive to prepare our students to meet the obligations and challenges of Christian living in a responsible and self-disciplined manner.
In our child-centered curriculum students are offered the opportunity to develop their God-given gifts to the best of their ability.
We foster close cooperation between teachers and parents, the first and primary educators, in guiding each child toward clarifying values, experiencing a sense of accomplishment, and developing an appreciation of self worth.
