ST. GABRIEL’S HISTORY
The school opened on September 24, 1956 to help serve the growing population of Catholic families in the area. Since then, the school has had two additions to its square footage in order to maintain adequate space for its students. What began with three hundred students is now home to over our present number of 686 students representing over 475 families. There are three kindergarten homerooms and three of each other grade. In addition to the core subject areas of religion, language arts, math, social studies and science, we also offer computer, music, art, library science, Spanish, physical education and guidance. We also are proud to have a full time resource teacher and a full time enrichment teacher that help meet the needs of all of our students.
