Most Sacred Heart School (PreSchool, Elementary, Middle)

Since 1948 Most Sacred Heart Parish has operated a parochial school to pass on the Faith to the children of the Parish. This transfer of the Faith from one generation to the next is one of the goals given to the Catholic church by Christ Himself. Most Sacred Heart Catholic School is committed to our core values. We Nourish the Soul, Embrace the Spirit, Inspire the Mind, Open the Heart, thereby celebrating the Most in Each Child. Besides providing religious education, sacramental preparation, liturgical experience and apostolic and charitable opportunities, Most Sacred Heart School is a Blue Ribbon Accredited elementary school which provides an excellent 21st century education in a Catholic atmosphere. From pre-school to 8th grade, our students excel. Our dedicated and well-trained faculty is ably led by Monica Wilson, principal. Most Sacred Heart School is fully Accredited with the Missouri Nonpublic School Accrediting Association and is a member of the National Federation of Nonpublic School State Accrediting Associations. All teachers hold a Bachelors Degree as well as a Missouri State Teaching Certificate. Many of our teachers hold a Masters Degree and are Paul VI certified. Not only does Most Sacred Heart School have a low Student Teacher Ratio, we offer a Comprehensive Core Curriculum. We also enrich our students with Spanish, Music, Art, PE, Family Life and Advanced Technology. We also work closely with the Rockwood School District for students needing special resources.

Mr. Plefka still plays hockey 2 or 3 times a week for Men’s League or pickup.

One year he successfully raised over 200 trout!”]
