The mission of Catholic education is universal, as dictated by the Vatican, and dedicated to improving the lives of all children. Mother of Sorrows School is committed to serving all children placed in our charge, regardless of creed, nationality, and economic circumstance.
A highly-qualified teaching staff is an essential component of our mission. We are committed to recruiting and maintaining a staff that is skilled and knowledgeable, enthusiastic and dedicated, constantly growing professionally and personally, and attentive to the academic needs of individual students.
The administration team provides crucial operational, academic, and professional leadership in service of the mission. We serve students, parents, and employees by responding to concerns in a timely and sensitive manner; maintaining a school environment that is safe, peaceful, and conducive to learning; and finding resources to maintain and expand our academic programs.
Our Parents and Guardians
Supportive families serve as the stewards of our school. Our families contribute by helping one another through development efforts, welcoming new families and assisting those in need, and participating in our PTO.
