There’s just something greater about St. Matthew School!

St. Matthew School is an extraordinary learning community for students in Pre-K3 through Grade 8, nestled in the Forestville section of Bristol, where we believe educating hearts and minds matter. As a member of our school family, our caring and experienced teachers will nurture your child as both a student and a person, ensuring all those in our care are provided with an education that will allow them to flourish in academics, athletics, and personal interests. Since 1961, our school has been rooted in a tradition of excellence, inspired by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and remains a beacon of light and academic excellence today and certainly for years to come. Families choose St. Matthew School for the warm, respectful environment, coupled with strong academics, and stay for this and the community that embraces all, making our school a truly special place to learn and grow.

As summer continues, while some of our classrooms are approaching capacity, we’re excited to share that we still have a little space available to welcome new students!
