School Notes

  • Mission StatementOur school has the advantage of functioning in a small, receptive, cooperative community of faith. As educators, we reaffirm our mission to teach as Jesus did and proclaim the gospel message. Through support and example, we strive to instill in our students an appreciation that Catholic education is to be lived as well as learned.
  • We are committed to educating the whole person and are sensitive to the individual needs of our students. At St. Rose of Lima School the nurturing of the intellect is second only to the nurturing of our Catholic faith. Children's basic skills are broadened through environment. Through direction and example students are encouraged to participate in various service activities. With Jesus as our role model, our focus is "education with inspiration".
