About Us


St. Leo's School is a Faith-based, Roman Catholic, parochial school where the students are held to a very high standard of academic excellence and behavior.

The educational process is a partnership between home and school including: parents, students, and the entire school faculty and staff. It is through the cooperative efforts, commitment and mutual support that we strive to provide the best academic environment for all of our students.

As we continue moving forward at St. Leo's School changes are always being made to engage the children and enhance their learning experience. The classrooms include collaboration and group work. Working as a team, the students depend on one another.

St. Leo’s is a wonderful school—the teachers are creative, dedicated and enthusiastic and the children are excited to attend. With a spirit of cooperation, incredible parent dedication, and family atmosphere we encourage a joy of learning and expect nothing but the best!
