Mission Statement


Immaculate Heart of Mary School is a Community of Faith in which school and parents join together in the formation and education of each child to achieve a balance of faith, character, and academic excellence.




Philosophy

 

We, the Faith Community of Immaculate Heart of Mary School, are committed to Jesus Christ, and therefore called by Him to minister in love to others.  We strive to provide a curriculum infused with a spirituality which nurtures openness, growth, the ability to adapt to change, and a gentleness and respect toward all God’s creation.

 

We challenge one another to be globally aware people and peacemakers who accept the poor of this world with a hospitality mirroring Gospel values.

 

We celebrate our diversity in an atmosphere of love and respect, where students esteem the dignity of their person and the value of all people and cultures.
