Since it’s opening in 1960, St. Bernadette Parish School has been characterized by a family atmosphere, caring for both educational and spiritual needs of students. St. Bernadette Parish was established in 1960 after the Ambaum family donated the land where our school, church, and fields are today. Originally staffed and run by the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity from Redwood, California, the school is now staffed by lay people and one nun.
Currently, St. Bernadette is a vibrant school of 200 students in Preschool-8th grade. We are a Department of Early Learning licensed Early Childcare Center and a fully accredited WCEA school. The faculty includes one teacher per grade level, one early learning center aide and a Title I teacher. In addition to core academic classes, the school offers physical education, music, library, and information skills classes. Before and after school activities include: drama, choir, math club, art, and CYO sports. Our Extended Day Program provides before and after school childcare for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Student technology access includes Chromebooks for every student.
St. Bernadette Parish School is a multicultural school with many traditions, celebrations and activities throughout the year sponsored by our Parent Club: Halloween Carnival, Pho dinner, Italian dinner, Filipino dinner and Latino Night. Our school community is characterized by extraordinarily supportive parents and enthusiastic students. The school provides an excellent education in a spiritual setting with a strong sense of Catholic identity.
