Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The education program at St. Matthew is primarily "Hands-On". We encourage the children to learn by doing. They explore and experiment to understand the "How's and Why's" of the world. Many opportunities will be available for the young people including:
Creative Art
Basic Numbers
Language Development
Field trips and special guests add extra interest to the regular lesson plans. To enhance the children socially, they are taught to work and play in groups. Individual expression and creativity evolve as they try their talents in art, music, and drama. Throughout the year the children should develop independence, self-confidence, responsibility, and concern for one another. We want the children to feel comfortable at school. Learning should be fun. Our goal is to make the transition between home and school a happy, exciting experience
