St. Gregory the Great Catholic School was established and opened in September 2009. The initial construction, one of six buildings outlined on the master plan, housed nine classrooms. The second phase of development on the school campus was realized in summer 2012 with the completion of the Library Media Center and Administration Office building. In February 2018, the third phase of development was accomplished with the addition of the Science Lab and Learning Center to the elementary school campus. Preschool was established also at that time. Preschool, situated at the east end of campus, offers a variety of enrollment options and programs. A natural playscape, themed on the California Missions, offers an additional outdoor learning environment for preschoolers.
The innovative design of our school building is from the award winning architectural firm of Hyndman & Hyndman. Our 900 sq. ft. classrooms feature vaulted, open beam ceilings, with an airy atmosphere and a high degree of ambient daylight that provides a stimulating and cheerful learning environment. The student - centered classrooms boast an integrated computer center, built-in student storage cubbies, a sink area that supports art and science activities, and extensive technological infrastructure that supports LCD short-throw projectors, document cameras, and Smartboards. Each set of four classrooms has a central pod area, enclosed in glass, with access directly from each classroom. This design feature offers opportunities for small group and/or individualized instruction to both reinforce and challenge students in meeting and exceeding learning goals.
