About Us

Our Catholic Identity

SSS 2013-2014 (182)St. Stanislaus School was founded in 1897 by a group of Polish immigrants who wanted to create a God-centered learning environment where prayer, advanced study, and service were emphasized.

Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher. He is the model of its faculty and the inspiration of its students. St. Stanislaus is the extension of the Church’s work, of spreading the teachings of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

There are pictures of saints. There is a church next to the school. We talk about the Old Testament and the New Testament. The name of the school has Saint in the name. – Grade 4 student

Our children participate in liturgies that include Mass and various prayer services, classroom prayer, preparation for sacraments and daily meditation and reflection. As part of our school’s emphasis on spiritual development, children experience a variety of service projects throughout the school year.SSS 2013-2014 (191)

We talk about Jesus and we help poor people. We are nice to all people. – Grade 4 student

Today, our student body is composed primarily of students who are Roman Catholic. However, students from all religious backgrounds are welcome and do regularly enroll. If you are non-Catholic and would like to speak with one of our non-Catholic school families, please let us know. We would be happy to make the connection for you.

Our Students

TM11At St. Stanislaus School, we are concerned about the individual progress of each child. Smaller class sizes allow our teachers to individualize lesson plans around our students’ strengths and difficulties. Our goal is to take each student to the next level of learning. Students are also offered a variety of extracurricular activities to suit each child’s interests and abilities. Click here to visit our Student Life page.

One of the best measures of an elementary school is how their students perform in high school. We continually receive positive comments from area high schools about how well our students are prepared.

St. Stanislaus students come from many different communities including Meriden, Wallingford, Cheshire, Middletown, Southington, New Britain, and East Haddam. Bus transportation to and from St. Stanislaus School is provided within the Meriden school district.SSS 2013-2014 (212)

Everybody here is so nice. You are encouraged to ask for help if you need it. There is a good curriculum here and the teachers really help you learn. The school is nice also and the bus drivers are really nice. Also, there are lots of after-school activities like basketball and soccer. It’s really fun. Also for middle school (6-8), Latin is a 40 minute period twice a week. At the end of the year, we have a June Fest with water wars, moon bouncers, big slides and bouncy mazes and of course Polish Food. I get to work the fest. I love this school. I am glad I get to go here and I’ve been here since kindergarten. – Grade 7 student
