|Philosophy & Mission|
St. Stanislaus Kostka School’s faculty, families and administration share a commitment to fostering a faith filled community of lifelong learners and compassionate leaders through a challenging academic environment. St. Stanislaus Kostka School strives to develop the whole student spiritually, academically, physically and socially so they may achieve their greatest potential as disciples of Jesus. We encourage our students to develop active, curious and creative minds, a sense of social justice, and compassion for others.
St. Stanislaus Kostka School is a place where all stakeholders are valued and where their input provides the motivation for the manner in which we educate. Our school works towards partnerships that provide our students and faculty with the most up to date resources available in education. Our stakeholders work in a collaborative manner. It is incumbent upon all organizations within the school to maintain their interdependence and work in conjunction with one another to achieve the goal of student growth. All stakeholders take into account the best interest of our students and make decisions based on Gospel values.
Our school community values the uniqueness of our students. We understand that student growth is as individual as each of those students, and growth applies to all aspects of the student; physical, emotional, and educational. We encourage and celebrate the idea that teacher growth is equally important to student growth in creating a dynamic school. We understand that education is accomplished in the classroom, the playground, and the cafeteria. As educators we need to look for and expand on those teachable moments.
All members of our school see themselves as self reflective, lifelong learners. Pupils are co-constructors of learning along with teachers.
All adults in the school are proud to regard themselves as learners. Our school creates student centered classrooms. Our school strives to model and encourage growth in our students as citizens of a caring community that seeks to ensure the well being of all those within our school community and the world at large. All members of our community work towards developing students who are morally responsible world citizens.
St. Stanislaus Kostka has a deep sense of history and our students understand that history where it pertains to our community or to our religious heritage.
