Elementary School

St. Stanislaus Polish National Catholic Elementary School offers an exceptional education for your child from kindergarten through eight grades.

Features include:
• Full-Day Kindergarten
• Parental Involvement Encouraged
• Small Class Size – Individual Attention
• Faith-Based Environment
• Excellence in Math and English – Outstanding Results

St. Stanislaus is:
• A Faith-Based Catholic Elementary School
• A learning environment that emphasizes firm mastery of the fundamentals of elementary education, namely, reading and mathematics.
• A learning community that not only welcomes, but actively seeks the support and involvement of parents as indispensable partners in the learning process.
• A private, religion-centered school that teaches catholic Christian values and provides a values-based curriculum.
• A safe, warm, nurturing place for children to learn.
• A school whose small class sizes provides a virtually personalized curriculum for each child.
• A school whose multi-age classrooms foster advanced learning, self-esteem and sensitivity in students.
• A Christian community where service to others is valued and promoted as part of the curriculum of the upper grades.

St. Stanislaus is not:
•A public school with unlimited resources.
At St. Stanislaus, teachers and parents must share extra curricular duties like chaperoning and holiday party planning. Parents are welcome in the school at lunch and recess. We want you to see how your child is faring.
•A secular school that is barred from teaching values and religion.
At St. Stanislaus, our students receive regular religious instruction and attend Mass twice a week and on every Holy Day of Obligation.
•A large, impersonal place where learning takes an institutionalized approach.
At St. Stanislaus, our small class size allows high-achievers to advance at their own rate and students who need more time the encouragement they need to master the skills of their grade level.
•A school without focus.
At St. Stanislaus, our academic focus is on the fundamentals of elementary education. We stand by our decision to devote our curriculum to educational fundamentals citing these depressing statistics from Pennsylvania’s public schools:
Pennsylvania Report Card:
Student Achievement (NEPA 2003):
•4th graders proficient or above in math: 36%
•8th graders proficient or above in math: 30%
•4th graders proficient or above in reading: 33%
•8th graders proficient or above in reading: 32%
Clearly, elementary educators need to focus on math and reading and here at St. Stanislaus – WE DO!
•A school that lacks discipline.
At St. Stanislaus, our rules are clear and evenly enforced. This teaches children self-reliance and provides a feeling of safety.
•St. Stanislaus is NOT a place where your child will be subjected to peer pressure or unsavory influences.
