Welcome to St. Matthew Catholic School where we are "One community, growing in Christ." You will find St. Matthew to be a caring, Christ-centered community focused on the development of the whole child.
Our students are challenged to use their God-given talents to fulfill their potential as they learn and grow closer to Christ each day. We follow the academic standards in curriculum set forth by the Archdiocese of Portland. As a STEM-focused school, we encourage students to ask deep real-world questions, collaborate with their peers, and arrive at meaningful conclusions. In addition, we recognize the need for a comprehensive, well-rounded curriculum to guide each child to live out their potential. Therefore, we also offer a variety of curricular content and enrichment such as music, band, Spanish, PE, health, and art. Each is important to develop the whole child.
The faculty and staff of St. Matthew are caring individuals who strive to be the best at their craft. Our teachers model life-long learning while instilling a thirst for knowledge in their students. All staff are invested in the success of each student according to their individual talents, interests, needs, and gifts.
You will find parents who are actively involved in St. Matthew, sharing with us their time and talent to ensure a quality program. Our parents make the effort to help new families quickly and easily feel a part of the school community. St. Matthew believes education is a partnership between school and home, and here you will see this lived out.
I encourage you to visit our school and let us meet your family. We will provide a tour and a private session to answer any questions. If we can offer further assistance with your decision making process, please don’t hesitate to call me.
God bless you and your family.
Lesley Lindell, Principal
