Rectory's COVID-19 Update

Rectory is only offering an in-person option for our Elementary Students. We believe these younger students are best served in person and do not yet possess the required skills to be as successful in online learning compared to our older students. In addition, the rate of COVID-19 transmission among children under ten is lower than in other age groups.  

Explore, Engage, Empower

Welcome to the elementary division at Rectory School where we spend our days with students in Kindergarten through Grade 4! Since our first elementary classroom opened in 2004, we have embraced our school mission and creed of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, and Compassion. We hope that you enjoy exploring our website, as you learn about the vision that we are mindful to provide for each of our students.

As a community, we choose to behave with understanding, kindness, and compassion and believe that we share responsibility for each other’s well-being. This is more than school for us, it is a place where we honor each child to be their best selves. 

While this website offers a glimpse into how we connect our unique traditions, curriculum, and learning opportunities within our community, we cannot completely capture the nature-inspired environment and real-life learning experiences that define how we move through each day. We are proud of the beautiful new building that was thoughtfully designed for children and became our home in the winter of 2017. If you are intrigued by this virtual visit, please feel free to connect with us. Our elementary team would love to meet you! 

Wishing you well,

Maria Carpenter, Director of Elementary
