History of Saint David Catholic School
In 1984, Saint David Catholic School opened its doors with an enrollment of 99 students in Pre-K through 3rd grade. Our school continued to grow each year. In 1990, after we graduated our first 8th grade class, we became a fully accredited Catholic School. With the inspiration of our Pastor Father O’Reilly, the parishioners, faculty and staff of our school, we were awarded the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence in 1994. Our dedicated faculty and staff educate students to be Christian leaders, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens. We take a personal interest in each and every child.
Catholic education strives to educate the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, socially, intellectually, artistically, and physically. Our curricula and co-curricular activities are designed to instill in each student a reverence for God and all His creation, and to affirm the rich diversity of our students, families, teachers while building positive community involvement. We have a proven track record educating children to become people “with and for others” in the Christian spirit of service education. Indeed, our talented graduates have an established record of academic success and extracurricular involvement.
At Saint David Catholic School we create ideal conditions for learning and leadership to flourish. Art, computer, library, music, physical education, and Spanish are offered at every level. Subjects are departmentalized in the middle school classes to prepare our grades 6 to 8 students for high school. All classes participate in fieldtrips to educational and cultural destinations throughout the Broward County area. Our after school program includes supervised daily activities that are age appropriate for each grade level. In addition we have an extensive athletic program as well as tutoring services that are available through our Enhancement Program.
As partners in education, we welcome and encourage parent participation, as there are numerous opportunities to be involved in the school. Parents are the lifeblood of our school and we continue to work together allowing our children to flourish, so that someday they will become the Catholic Christian leaders of our world.
