Saint James School offers a comprehensive Pre-K program in a nurturing Christian environment. As part of the Saint James community, children have an enriching experience that includes various opportunities to be part of what they fondly refer to as “the big school.” It’s a unique environment that cannot be found elsewhere.

Kindergarten – 8th Grade

Saint James School has been a leading choice for educating children in Manchester and surrounding towns since it first opened its doors in 1922.  Many changes have happened at the school since then, but the basic principles that have turned generations of Saint James graduates into compassionate, disciplined, critical thinkers have not.

Nationally Recognized For Excellence

Saint James School is a proud recipient of the Blue Ribbon Award for Academic Excellence.   This award recognizes high-performing schools, where students rank at the top of their peer group nationwide in both reading and math on standardized tests.  On the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, Saint James students consistently score several years above grade level, and the yearly gains made by each group of students exceed expected progress.
