St. Lawrence is a Catholic elementary school that has been in continuous operation since 1901 and has been located
in the present building since 1999. St. Lawrence School
is comprised of approximately 130 students; preschool through sixth grade.


At St. Lawrence School, students grow and develop skills, habits, knowledge and faith. Religious instruction is an integral part of our education process. Students prepare and participate in weekly school liturgies. Our students continually earn high scores and demonstrate excellent growth in academic areas on formal, informal and standardized tests. Our professional and dedicated staff help all students achieve their fullest potential in safe and positive environments. We carry out a great mission to serve God by building knowledge and character of our young people.


The climate at St. Lawrence School is a warm, inviting family atmosphere with a close knit staff, involved parents, and strong school tradition and spirit. St. Lawrence School has an experienced teaching staff committed to our mission. We strive for low student/teacher ratios. We offer physical education, vocal & instrumental music, and computer teachers. If you came to our school, you would see a very caring and spiritual staff who knows each child as an individual. We have small class sizes that average about 13 students which are great for meeting each student’s unique needs. Each Pre K through 6th grade classroom has an interactive Promethean Board for teachers and students to use in the learning process. Parents are actively involved in school activities and with our School Family Organization (L.I.F.E.). We are fully accredited by the state of South Dakota.
