Saint Lawrence Elementary School was established in 1961 by the founding pastor, Rev. Victor Wilkiemeyer. Staffed by the Sisters of Loretto, the school grew to include grades 1-6. A kindergarten was added followed by an extended care program. In 1993, Saint Lawrence Elementary School opened the first licensed Pre-K program in the Diocese of San Jose. The following year grade 7 was added with grade 8 following the next year.

In 2013, Saint Lawrence introduced an elective program and continues to expand their co-curricular program across all grades.

The Saint Lawrence student community is diverse, and the school serves students from both the parish and surrounding communities, both in and outside of Santa Clara County. Ethnic diversity mirrors that of Santa Clara County. The student body is approximately 75% Roman Catholic with other major religions well represented.

The Elementary and Middle School is a parochial school of Saint Lawrence the Martyr Parish.

Saint Lawrence is currently practicing distance learning but we would love to visit with you virtually.  Please email and we will arrange a time connect. We look forward to hearing from you.

Whether you are looking for challenging academics, invigorating faith, inspiring electives, enriching co-curricular activities, safe before and after school care, innovative technology, motivating athletics, a welcoming community or all of these, you’ve come to the right place!
