St. Martin of Tours was founded to provide a rigorous education in a caring environment committed to Christian principles. By blending the old (proven teaching techniques) with the new (interactive whiteboard technology in every classroom), staff and teachers emphasize communication and critical thinking skills.
The school community is committed to classrooms where teachers present the core courses of phonics, reading, grammar, literature, math, history, geography, and science — and then go above the Common Core with instruction in technology, art, music, physical education, and foreign language.
Teachers craft individualized learning plans for each student. In alignment with the Wisconsin Department of Instruction standards, the curriculum follows the Archdiocese of Milwaukee guidelines and new Seton Catholic Schools enhancements.
St. Martin of Tours nurtures each student in a personalized approach to educational growth and their spiritual journey.
Students learn about the Catholic Christian faith in the classroom and demonstrate its values in the outside world. Staff and teachers lead students through daily prayer and religious instruction, as well as twice weekly Mass, and special prayer services. Students serve as ministers of hospitality, readers, cantors, and choir members during the school Masses.
Students are expected to treat each other in the Catholic Christian way, and teachers model this through their instruction and behavior.
Embracing a “Learning without Limits” approach to individual learning means students are provided with expanded opportunities to engage in meaningful activities appropriate to their interests and strengths.
Students learn in a continuum moving from easier to more difficult material and from simple to more complex strategies at their own pace, making continuous progress. Instruction and resources for gifted learners are available to students in all grades.
St. Martin of Tours’s academic and spiritual educational approach prepares students for success in high school and beyond. Its diverse environment prepares students for the joys and challenges of living and thriving in a multicultural, ever-changing world.
To demonstrate success in social, emotional and spiritual development — and to apply classroom learnings — St. Martin of Tours students are encouraged to take part in athletics and extracurricular activities.
A recently built, well-equipped gym and spacious outdoor practice fields are home to the St. Martin of Tours Firebirds. Four organized sports programs are available for students including soccer, volleyball, basketball and track. Soccer participation starts in K5.
St. Martin of Tours prides itself in offering extracurricular activities for all. Students have the opportunity to enjoy Boy or Girl Scouts and as students age, they can participate in Student Council, Band, Orchestra, and Choir.
