... Raising students to live in a bubble — a white bubble, a black bubble, a Latino bubble, whatever type of bubble you want to call it — is not to your benefit in a global society.— Dr. Derrick Gay, New York Times
Why St. Elizabeth’s K-8 School?
We are an independent K-8 day school that embodies all the wonderful qualities that distinguish Episcopal schools in this country. We draw on the lengthy Episcopal tradition of excellence in academics and a commitment to a well-rounded Liberal Arts approach to education. We understand that a first-class education is a life-altering experience and should be accessible to an inclusive and diverse community that promotes a learning environment beneficial to all.
St. Elizabeth’s features small class sizes in a safe, nurturing and healthy environment with two teachers per class in grades K-5, and an experienced and engaged middle school faculty for grades 6-8. We offer a stimulating, well-balanced academic program enriched through music, art, physical education, Spanish, Enhanced Learning Time, chapel and Faith Studies. Additionally, we offer extended-day and after-school-enrichment programs.
All students at St. Elizabeth’s are given the opportunity to engage in thoughtful and age appropriate discussions regarding equity and opportunity for all. This curriculum is formalized in grades 4-8. The experiences and academic training they receive will prepare them for a diverse global society. Graduates will be ready to attend excellent secondary schools and will also be prepared to act as supportive agents of change in the broader community.
Educating the “whole child” is more than a slogan at SES!
St. Elizabeth’s School admits students of any race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin in administration of its education and admissions policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
