- Message from Head of School, Stu Work:
- At St. Matthew's we believe we have created a most special school. Blessed with cheerful, inquisitive and thoughtful students, outstanding and caring teachers, and helpfully involved parents, the school offers a unique blend of seemingly contradictory attributes that makes it remarkable in so many ways.
- Traditional in its values and holding high expectations, the school also possesses a wonderfully creative faculty, who skillfully mix tried and true methodologies with cutting edge approaches. As an integral part of the Parish of St. Matthew, we stress moral and spiritual growth while welcoming and honoring families of all faiths. Challenging academics always include a network of support and caring. Fine and performing arts, physical education, and technology are essential parts of each student's life at St. Matthew's. We strive to develop not only critical thinkers, but also persons of integrity; we hope for not only successful and happy children, but also ones full of kindness and concern for the well being of others.
- I invite you to set up a visit so you can begin to get a feel for how we make these special attributes come alive at St. Matthew's.

Depending on their family circumstances, our Presidents received a wide range of primary and secondary schooling.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
