Where We Excel
St. Boniface School is proud of its rich history. We recognize that first and foremost, we are a parish and from that solid foundation we offer many opportunities to deepen one`s faith and experience of community. St. Boniface School is just one of many ways that we reach out to our families. It is through this recognition, that our strengths blossom: Our spirituality, our academic offering, our resources, and our people.
Our mission statement is based on our Catholic identity and we strive to live up to our mission daily. Father Jeff Goeckner, our Pastor, Laura Kretzer, our principal, and Laura Jones, our science instructor and religious coordinator, bring a daily presence of reverence and respect in their example our students are reminded to bring God`s wisdom and guidance into their every effort. At St. Boniface we truly create, learn, live, love, laugh and play in God’s image.
Our school continues to expand and utilize technology into the students’ daily learning environment with ChromeBooks and iPads. Our computer lab allows students in grades K-8 to participate in daily computer activities from Accelerated Reader to Keyboarding. Computers in the class rooms, and the incorporation of Smart Boards expand their educational experience. Furthermore, our faculty and staff continue to enhance the academic experience for our students with such offerings as an Art Program and the addition of Spanish as a foreign language. Our students excel academically, as shown by our high Terra Nova standardized testing scores school wide (our students consistently exceed Diocesan and National Averages in all testing categories by 5 – 15 percentage points). St. Boniface provides a bedrock foundation for academic achievement in high school and beyond. Over 60% of our graduates go on to achieve High Honor Roll or Honor Roll at their respective high schools.
