Our Manhattan schools are committed to developing the whole child, introducing a range of enrichment programs from computer programming to performing arts.
With a keen focus on preparing our graduates for Heaven and College, our Manhattan Schools remain steadfast in their commitment to building the individual capacities of each student.
Through the use of data-driven instruction and differentiation in teaching, our students continue to make significant, measurable academic growth.
Our Manhattan schools are proud to report an impressive increase in ELA and math test scores, which surpassed both New York City and New York State schools. Over the past three years, our Manhattan schools have seen significant growth in student performance, delivering ELA scores that increased by 16 percent and Math scores by 7 percent.
Leading the way in this charge is our use of MAP. Now in its second year, our educators use this assessment tool to create individualized learning for every student. By understanding exactly where our students strengths and areas of growth lie, our teachers can create dynamic, individualized lesson plans that meet the needs of the students they teach.
Manhattan schools continue to lead the way as centers of innovation and creativity. Whether through a bilingual curriculum at St. Elizabeth’s School in Washington Heights, dynamic art and drama programs at St. Paul’s School and Good Shepherd, or STEM initiatives at St. Charles Borromeo, Manhattan school students are enriched daily inside and outside the classroom.
Technology remains at the forefront of new programs and academic enhancement within our schools. The computer lab of yesteryear has been replaced with Chromebooks and iPads. Blended learning infuses the classroom through programs such as Edgenuity, Dreambox, iReady and Khan Academy, as students and teachers work collaboratively to build academic skills.
Manhattan students grow into self-confident scholars with boundless dreams and endless potential. Manhattan schools are built on a foundation of faith and service. By enriching the moral and spiritual lives of each student, we are confident that we are developing young men and women of character, fully equipped with the academic and emotional skills needed to succeed in a world that needs their talents and leadership.
