Wahlert High School is rooted in Catholic-Christian tradition and experience, the Wahlert community facilitates student development, integrating their spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, emotional and artistic dimensions through a challenging, stimulating and creative educational environment.
We believe all students can achieve success. By empowering students in their pursuit of excellence, we prepare them for lifelong learning.
Holy Family Catholic Schools, preK through high school, are committed to providing academic rigor through a comprehensive curriculum.
Our elementary curriculum guide was developed to provide a brief overview of the curriculum for grades preK-5.
The elementary curriculum reflects Holy Family Catholic School's high expectations for each student, and incorporates the Archdiocese of Dubuque's grade level expectations.
Curriculum development is a crucial component of the educational process as we prepare students to think critically and creatively.
