Welcome to St. Patrick Elementary School

We Are Vincentians ....

Since 2004 the Daughters of Charity have sponsored Saint Patrick School.  Their Vincentian spirit is integrated into all aspects of the school community including Masses, prayer, Christian service, the curriculum, religious education and the Vincentian Marian Youth program.

Saint Patrick uses Discipline with Purpose (DWP) to help students learn 15 self-discipline skills. This developmental approach to teaching self-discipline enables students to become self-directing people.

We Are a Drexel School ....

Saint Patrick School is part of the Drexel School System which is a resource-rich, cutting-edge approach to Catholic education. The Blended Learning and station rotation model are integrated into classroom learning.

Each child has the use of an iPad. Many of the apps students use are individualized so that the needs of each student is addressed.

We Are Academic ....

21st Century learning happens each day at Saint Patrick's. Students are offered a wonderful blend of technology-driven education, faith formation, Fine Arts classes in music and art and physical education.

Differentiated instruction in math and language allows each student's academic needs to be met. Project-based learning encourages students to explore topics in-depth.

We invite other students and their families to consider becoming part of our school community. Come and visit Saint Patrick School and experience for yourself our wonderful school community. Please call 408-283-5858 for more information or to schedule a tour. More information also is provided on our Admissions page.
