Queen of Apostles Catholic School is a co-educational school serving students K–8. Founded in 1966, we have a rich tradition of providing an education permeated with the spirit of Christ while developing the whole child: spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally.
Queen of Apostles is a wonderful school dedicated to educating the whole child—spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally. Our school is located in a safe, quiet neighborhood. We pride ourselves on our diverse student population that embraces the teachings of Christ.
Our school has the strong support of our pastor, Father Leopoldo Vives, and parochial vicar, Father Juan Espino. In addition, the faculty and staff at Queen of Apostles School are very caring and dedicated to their work. The teachers’ positive attitudes and desire to help all children achieve are an important part of our school’s success. Furthermore, the PTO board is constantly finding new ways to build community and support the school through volunteering and fundraising. I feel truly blessed to work with such wonderful people.
