Currently I am the principal at St. Bede School, but I was formerly a teacher here several years ago. The one quality that I would say makes St. Bede School different from other schools is the warm sense of family that is found here. I have worked at other schools prior to returning here, but have never felt this same type welcoming family atmosphere. There is a true sense of caring among the faculty, the students, and the parents. Everyone in our school cares for one another. All children are welcomed and students are encouraged to show their care and concern for others through their daily actions. Parents are seen as partners in their child's education and asked to communicate with their child's teacher as needed. Everyone is expected to show respect for others and to get involved in service opportunities. We want each child who enters our school to reach his or her full potential. Therefore, we believe that it is important to offer a variety of instructional strategies that reflect best practices. These best practices are based on educational research. We also acknowledge the importance of developing the whole child by offering a very strong faith based program. We expect all students to put their faith into action through participation in Mass, an active prayer life, and by following the footsteps of Jesus both in and outside the school. I am proud of our students for their academic accomplishments, as well as their Christian character formation. Please check us out on our website. We have an online informational booklet that tells you about us and offers pictures as well. Simply go to our website and click on "Information About Our School."
