Elementary School—Kindergarten – Grade 5
Often a child’s first exposure to a structured learning environment, elementary school is a critically important experience. If children are excited about and successful in their learning efforts during these pivotal years, they are more likely to approach further education with confidence and enthusiasm. To help ensure this sense of competence and genuine engagement in learning, St. Rose of Lima has developed an elementary school program that emphasizes active learning experiences in a nurturing, supportive, and exciting environment.
St. Rose of Lima students are challenged to reach their God-given potential, to strive for excellence in all they do through the integration of faith and learning. Students excel academically through a traditional curriculum integrated with modern teaching techniques such as cooperative learning experiences and technology. St. Rose of Lima students participate in educational field trips to learn through life experiences. This commitment to quality can be seen on test scores, as the average student at St. Rose of Lima scores above grade level on nationally recognized standardized tests.
At St. Rose of Lima, students share God’s love, parents gather in service, and teachers demonstrate the spiritual truths found in the Word of God. Bible lessons are taught daily and mass is held weekly. St. Rose of Lima’s religious curriculum teaches children the need for a personal relationship with God and fosters spiritual and moral development in our students.
