St. Patrick's School at 100 South L Street, Sparta, WI 54656 US - Home
Welcome to St. Patrick School!
St. Patrick’s School is supported through tuition and also St. Patrick’s Parish. Our goal at St. Patrick’s School is to assist parents in educating their children in faith and academics.
It is the combination of home and school that helps our students to become well rounded individuals. Upon completion of eighth grade, we believe students are prepared for higher education and a lifetime of service to the church.
St. Patrick’s School was founded in 1879 by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. The “old school” was built in 1932 and was demolished in 2010. St. Patrick’s Education and Activity Center (SPEAC) was built in two phases with the first being completed in 2007 and the second phase in 2009. This new facility includes nine regular classrooms, multi-purpose room, music room, library, computer lab, science lab, and gymnasium. Today, St. Patrick’s School maintains an enrollment around 130 students. The average class size is 15 students. We have 9 classroom teachers (4 Year Old Kindergarten (Preschool) thru 8th grade), plus two part-time teachers in physical education, computers, and music. St. Patrick's School welcomes all military families. We understand that moving to a new area adds a lot of additional stress to your life. To help this transition, we invite you to come and visit our school and experience the family atmosphere that we offer.
Inquiries and Tours
Throughout the school year, prospective parents and their students are invited to come and see how St. Patrick's Catholic School makes a difference in the lives of our students.
Tours are purposefully scheduled during the school day so that visitors can see the interaction between teachers and students. Visitors also have the opportunity to see how our students are engaged in the learning process and the general atmosphere of our school.
We encourage interested and new families to make an appointment 24 hours in advance, but also welcome drop-in inquiries. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with additional school information. We can schedule a tour or time permitting; an unscheduled tour may be given.
Tours can be scheduled by calling 608 269 4748.
