All students at Saint Matthew's are treasured and taught by caring, compassionate, experienced and certified staff and teachers. Our classrooms are not overflowing which allow for more individualized instruction for our students. Students' questions, thoughts, and interests are valued. Each student is provided with opportunities to explore his/her personal faith relationship with God; alongside a rich academic program that is not bogged down with benchmark testing. Morning Chapel Mondays-Thursdays, daily Math, Reading, Grammar, Spelling, Science, and Social Studies, daily Physical Education, and twice weekly music instruction foster genuine learning and a love for school! Our Pre-K classes are full day classes! Come by and speak with the principal for more information and a tour of the school.
Saint Matthew’s Episcopal School in Edinburg Texas has a faithful 40 year tradition of teaching and nurturing children in a faith filled environment. Students learn in a setting where they are treasured and taught in an intentional manner that recognizes their independent styles of learning.
Saint Matthew’s Episcopal School is here to meet the academic needs of children ages 2 years old through the sixth grade. We are devoted to nurturing our students and providing a safe and loving environment for them to grow and learn.
Genuine student centered learning is our focus and conformity to state mandated test taking does not have a place at Saint Matthew’s Episcopal School. Once our students graduate from Saint Matthew’s, they are well prepared to confidently face the standardized tests and perform at an exceptional level. In the meantime, St. Matthew’s does administer the ITBS (Iowa Test of Basic Skills) annually to its first through sixth graders. This test is often used for G/T placement in schools. It is a test that measures the learning students have mastered throughout their academic year. Our students have a reputation for scoring well above average.
We are blessed to begin our mornings, Monday-Thursday with school chapel. Monday through Friday, we provide a schedule that includes reading, grammar, spelling, handwriting, cursive, math, science, social studies, and physical education. Music Instruction takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Technology usage and learning occurs within the parameters of the core subjects. Students are part of smaller classroom communities which contribute to many opportunities for abundant learning. We have complimentary early morning care from 7:00-7:45, and we have an extended care program for a fee that runs from 3:30-5:30.
Saint Matthew’s Episcopal School recognizes and honors that families have their personal faith and traditions. The baptismal covenant is the focus for our faith teachings. Chapel service is from 8:00 a.m. to 8:20 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and establishes a grounded understanding that we are all God’s children. Third through Sixth graders participate in leading the service as well as leading the pledge of allegiance. Children listen to Bible stories drawn from scripture and relate to a reflection led by a priest or lay leader. There is always joyful music as we sing songs of praise and thanksgiving. There is no brighter way to begin one’s day, and parents are always welcome to join us.
