Since its inception in 1954, St. Margaret’s School has been staffed by the Sisters of St. Francis and devoted laity. Rich in the tradition of St. Francis, we continue to follow in the footsteps of Christ and to “teach as Jesus taught.”

We are committed to implementing and integrating the newest technology. With the guidance of our devoted faculty, we strive to exceed all New York State standards. We are dedicated to providing a safe and secure learning environment that fosters music, art, and athletic programs.

Our school is an important and thriving educational ministry of St. Margaret’s Parish. St. Margaret’s School (grades Pre-K – 6) opens its doors to all families seeking a Catholic education and others who embrace our philosophy of education for their children.

We are a school family who promote excellence in a loving, caring, and sharing environment. We weave all of these integral components together in a unique tapestry and design that is St. Margaret’s School.
