Principal – St Patrick School (Jaffrey, NH)

Education: Elementary, FT Employee
St Patrick School (Jaffrey, NH)


Enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year is expected to be 90 students. We are small but growing; anticipated growth is expected to reach 120 students over the next three years. Our children come from thirteen surrounding New Hampshire towns as well as one in northern Massachusetts. The administration, faculty, and staff of St. Patrick School work in partnership with parents and volunteers to encourage each student to maximize his or her unique gifts and talents while learning and growing as scholars and caring citizens of the world community. Special attention is given to fostering each child’s faith, giving each one tools to help on their faith journey. Our children know what Adoration is because they participate, what a May crowning procession is because they initiate it, and what it means to be “God’s Kid”, their Mass anthem.

Our Philosophy

Gospel values
Respectful atmosphere
Education of the whole child
Academic excellence
Trusting home and school partnership

Where education of the heart is as important as education of the mind!
