Welcome to St. Patrick’s
Welcome to the St. Patrick’s School, founded in 2004. St. Patrick’s is a Catholic, K through 8, elementary school located in Rockville, Maryland.
Part of the Archdiocese of Washington. St. Patrick’s school is a small and nurturing environment that allows children to develop to their fullest potential. Our curriculum is a standards based program as prescribed by the Archdiocese of Washington. Our class size is approximately 25 per class. While at St. Patrick’s, children grow spiritually, academically and socially. St. Patrick’s School provides the foundation that all children need to become successful lifetime learners.
St. Patrick’s School is dedicated to developing young boys and girls who have strong and positive self-images, who strive to do their best in all of their endeavors and who recognize their responsibility to themselves and others. St. Patrick’s Catholic School strives for excellence through a strong academic program and a positive discipline plan. Our students are encouraged to take their Catholic education beyond the walls of the classroom and share it with others. The children are taught that their community is much broader than the one in which we live and that they have a responsibility to the larger world.
