St Michael Parish School

  • We, at St. Michael School, are Catholic school educators. As such, we view the foundation of our process of education to be riveted in our Catholic faith.
  • We believe we teach by word, by action and most importantly, by our personal lives.
  • In particular, our professional service is geared to the age level of elementary school.
  • Ever mindful that in our system of academics we are forming our future world, we teach to the standards of the two Great Commandments, "Love God above all things" and "Love your neighbor as yourself." As a Catholic School, we exist to educate the whole child, to help this young person grow into the adult whose life will affect a world of tomorrow, will make for a better place for all to live.
  • Our major goals presently are to teach love, respect, sharing and caring among all whom we educate.
  • Our far-range goal is to send forth leaders for tomorrow - faith filled, morally good and stable of character.
