Mission Statement The Mission of St. Bernadette School is to celebrate Christ's love through Catholic teachings and traditions, daily service to others, and academic excellence.
St. Bernadette School was built in 1965, and is surrounded by six acres of green space. We are a Preschool through 5th grade program, and an integral part of the St. Bernadette Parish community. We have a strong faith-based tradition which began with the Franciscan Sisters of Stella Niagara, NY. We continue that tradition. The community of St. Bernadette School is committed to developing the whole child. Students grow in the ability to love through an awareness of Godís love, an acceptance of oneself and respect for others. Our students develop characteristics of leadership that enable them to live out their commitment as Christians in an ever changing world. St. Bernadette School strives to be child and family centered.
St. Bernadette Preschool is licensed by the state of Ohio. Our program provides a variety of developmentally appropriate activities. It is a progressive curriculum with a leveled learning approach, and encourages children to be actively involved with the learning process.
Our preschool program encourages students to learn through creative play, and, active exploration and manipulation of their environment. This program design develops the whole child-spiritually, cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically.
Our preschool is MADE TO ORDER. This means that parents can design a preschool schedule that will better accommodate the scheduling needs of the family.
We encourage you to schedule a visit - Come and see our preschool program in action!
Our Kindergarten through 5th grade program is focused on student performance. We have an ideal student to teacher ratio. We specialize in differentiated instruction-finding where students are and then meeting their needs.
Technology is utilized to help us move learning forward. St. Bernadette School incorporates the following into our program: Google Classroom, Reading A-Z (RAZ Kids), IXL Math, Spelling City.
We also use Orton Gillingham reading strategies to assist in the development of reading skills in the lower grades, and to help enhance vocabulary and decoding skills in the upper grades.
