One test does not fit all.
Cataldo Catholic School is a fully accredited K-8 program that provides a multi-faceted approach to academic excellence. Our students are taught in traditional classroom settings that incorporate experiential learning. Attention is given to the whole child. Faith, community, fun, and rigorous standards combine to offer an environment that nurtures the scholar within.
Cataldo has an historic view of child development. We promote academic success commensurate with each student’s potential and hold high expectations for student behavior and decision making. A multifaceted program targets the uniqueness of every child.
At Cataldo we no longer adhere to the idea that technology is merely a tool. Calculators and yardsticks are tools, whereas technology is more like an entire workshop. We provide students with a ‘workshop’ full of tools and a place to come together to build knowledge. Learning is a social task and we seek to expand students’ thinking by transforming teaching and learning through the use of technology.
Our school ‘workshop’ houses LCD projectors and document cameras in every homeroom. All teachers have a laptop that is used to integrate the technology in the classroom. We have a computer lab with 30 computers open to classrooms all day, every day. Each homeroom has 5 or more computers for students to access throughout the day to supplement the lab.
Additionally, Cataldo offers a ‘mobile’ iPad unit complete with a MacBook Pro laptop and 30 iPads. This provides remediation and acceleration, practice, collaboration, creation, application, and implementation of skills learned through our various curriculum on the Apple platform.
Cataldo follows the Diocese of Spokane curriculum. Click here for more information.
