Love of Learning- Faith God-Service for Others

Since 1953, Little Flower School has been sharing in the educational ministry of the Catholic Church and striving to help each student achieve lifelong, responsible values and Christian morals. LFS endeavors to help each child attain his/her academic, spiritual and social potential by "Creating a Caring Community through Respect and Responsibility."

Little Flower provides an educational environment where a dedicated faculty and staff teach and model a love of learning encouraging students to strive for educational excellence. Student abilities are varied and every effort is made to reach each child and support his/her educational journey. Instruction is reinforced to meet their learning styles, differentiated for the range of student abilities and integrated with technology for instruction, enrichment and remediation.

An important hallmark of Little Flower is its strong sense of community. Parent involvement is a key ingredient for the positive spirit of camaraderie that serves as an asset for LFS. Parents, priests, and faculty are partners in working together for the best interests of the school. The students, aware of this great commitment, take pride in their sense of community and involvement, happily serving those in need who are less fortunate. Students are challenged to use their abilities and talents for their own good and for the good of their family, school, church, and country.
