The history of Saint James Episcopal School
is not just within the walls of our building, but in the hearts
of the children who have walked through its corridors.
If our walls could talk, the stories would be filled
with the sound of childrens laughter and the delight of discovery.
They would remember the stickiness of adhered art projects and the
lingering glances of interested parents and parishioners as they
studied each childs accomplishments posted on bulletin boards
lining the hallways.
If our walls could talk, they would recall that St.
James Episcopal Church has consistently supported education
for the children of our community by sprouting the roots and serving
as a home to other local schools.
If our walls could talk, they would reminisce when Saint James
Preschool opened its doors in September 1982 with four classes
and a staff of five. Their voices would fill with pride as
they relayed how over the next quarter of a century, Saint James
Preschool grew to include more than 11 classes and over 150
students while providing an exemplary early childhood education
regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origins. They
would tell you that with the addition of a Kindergarten class
in 2007, the School changed its name to Saint James Episcopal
School, believing that the same nurturing techniques that
built the solid foundation of the Preschool could be applied
to an elementary curriculum.
If our walls could talk, they would share the
buzz of excitement that reverberated through the hallways
when Saint James announced the introduction of a first
grade in the fall of 2010. They would share their joy in seeing
the radiant confidence of our young students as they thrive
within the nurturing shelter those walls provide.
History is in the making here at Saint James
Episcopal School and we hope that you and your children will be
a part of it.
