St. Leo School is a Catholic co-educational Pre-K – Grade 8 elementary school. It has been educating students since its founding in 1926 when St. Leo School had a new eight-room building with five grades and five teachers. The enrollment of its first year in operation was 221 students. The trend of increasing enrollments continued, necessitating double in grades so that in 1948 a four-room addition was made to the original building. Then in 1954, a new building with six rooms and an auditorium was ready for occupancy. Such an increase of pupils and facilities reflected an appreciation for the quality of education imparted in St. Leo School. Our new building opened in September 2007.
This new building has three offices, conference room, regulated gym with a stage and bleachers. It also has a state of the art Science Lab, computer Lab and Library Media Center and a new teacher’s room. It has an elevator and is handicap accessible.
In the early years, the Sisters of the Presentation taught the students. The faculty and staff still hold to the tenets of the Catholic faith to teach as Jesus did. Although the times have changed, the dedication of the faculty to provide a quality education in a safe, nurturing environment remains the same. Fully Accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, St. Leo School provides an educational program which allows students the opportunity to develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, physically, and socially. St. Leo School strives to make education a life-forming experience.
