St. Mary Parish School Curriculum

At St. Mary Parish School, classroom instruction is designed using the Milwaukee Archdiocese Educational and WI Academic Standards. "I Can" statements guide daily lessons which assist with students' understanding of the skills being taught. Our teachers individualize lessons and provide accommodations / modifications based on individual student needs. A wide variety of techniques are used to engage the students through visual, auditory, oral language, and hands-on learning.

Our students are continuously reminded of the Catholic values, Catholic Social Teachings, and Virtues, which are incorporated throughout all content areas and lessons, to assist in relationship building, social dispositions, and faith building. 

For more information, please see the Early Childhood brochure and "I Can" statements for each grade level.
