Our motto is "Together Toward Tomorrow".
St. Matthew School Mission Statement
Our mission as a school community is to inspire our students to become life-long learners and to develop their individual talents within a Catholic setting.
We recognize individual talents and celebrate diversity by collaborating, modeling and providing a supportive learning environment for both our students and staff.
We do this so that our students will become responsible, caring and contributing members of society.
We serve regular program students in the Lauderdale, Rosslyn, Glengarry and O'Leary areas as well as the Ukrainian students of north Edmonton.
