St. Augustine School educates the whole child, considering each student’s mental, physical and spiritual well-being as well as his or her intellectual development.
Religion is an integral part of the school day and is incorporated into everything students do. Students attend mass weekly with their class and participate as readers, gift bearers, and altar servers.
St. Augustine School prepares students to meet life’s challenges. Chromebooks are used in the classroom with the i-Ready diagnostic and instructional program. Students’ strengths and weaknesses are assessed during the diagnostic phase and then remediated and/or accelerated during the instructional phase. Instruction is individually tailored to each child’s needs. This helps teachers to differentiate learning and to assist each student to achieve success.
The curriculum follows Common Core and the New York State Standards. Students in grades K–2 take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) every spring and students in grades 3-8 take the New York State Assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Spanish is taught in grades 6-8 and an accelerated mathematics program is available.
