School Notes

  • At St. Rita School, our belief is that every child whose parents want a Catholic education for him should indeed be given that opportunity. We believe that ever child can be successful at realizing the full potential God has given. It is up to parents, faculty, and pastoral staff to ensure that success. To fulfill that belief we have a variety of opportunities for learning and maximizing other talents through our academic curriculums and extracurricular activities. Our faculty consists of 14 homeroom teachers in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8. We have teachers in the special areas of Spanish, computer, physical education, art and music. We also have a learning coordinator, interventionist, and school counselor.
