About

A Catholic coeducational school for pre-kindergarten through grade 6 owned and operated by the Sisters of Saint Joseph. Nazareth Elementary School provides the highest standards of educational excellence, challenging students to develop their own individual gifts, to cooperate rather than compete, and to act with compassion rather than indifference. Students are taught to make choices based on Gospel values and are encouraged from an early age to participate in service to the community.

Volunteer

All Nazareth Elementary volunteers will have to complete a "Safe and Sacred" online training.
