Engaging our students is the cornerstone of a Rectory education, and in the elementary division, we are preparing our students to lead their own Spring Conferences. They are called Shared Conferences because the student attends the conference, along with their parents and teachers.
Elementary School (K-4)
If you are looking for an enriching environment where your child can be guided and encouraged to discover his or her unique social, emotional, and cognitive potential while experiencing the importance of community, then Rectory is the school for YOUR child!
Rectory's safe and nurturing environment enables all children to feel valued and empowered. As a result, they are active thinkers and learners who give their very best by exercising their mind, body, and spirit. Our beautiful new elementary wing was designed to enhance our educational vision. Students can work independently or collaborate with their peers in classrooms, hallways, and gathering spaces--both inside and outside. Families are always welcome and very involved in their children’s experiences, which leads to success and inspires a love of learning—the heart of our philosophy!

Due to the impending snowstorm, Rectory School will open at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 22 (Day Room, CARe, and ES doors will open at 9:00 a.m.) This will allow our maintenance crew time to clean up after the storm. If roads are worse than we are expecting, we will send out a follow-up communication on Thursday morning.
