About Us


 

St. Eugene School provides an EXCELLENT education:

·         Our teachers continue their own professional development to help their students; more than 80% of our teachers have their Masters’ Degrees or are currently pursuing their Masters’ Degrees.

·         We have special teachers for Gym (certified trainer), Art, Spanish, Library Skills, Technology and Instrumental Music.

·         We have successfully procured State Funding and grants to enhance our “Cutting-Edge” Technology Programs, which provide our students with the technological skills necessary to prepare students for the future workforce.  We have mounted projectors and interactive Smart Boards in every classroom; two Chromebook carts and three iPad carts for whole class use, two sets of interactive classroom response systems, a computer lab where students have weekly small group lessons and a full-time technology coordinator.

·         We have newly updated Reading, Math and Science curriculum texts, with strong technology components, to provide students with a quality education.

·         We have an Instrumental Band Program, Children’s Choir, CARES Program, Hot Lunch Program and active CYO to complement our school program. 

 

St. Eugene School is ACCESSIBLE:
