Little Flower School

In September 1962, Little Flower School opened its doors to admit 182 students in grades one through six. It was originally staffed by four Sisters of Mercy from St. Joseph’s Convent, Longford, Ireland. They came to minister in the Diocese of Reno at the request of Bishop Robert Dwyer and Monsignor Thomas Collins, who was then pastor of Little Flower Parish.

Today, the staff of Little Flower School consists of twelve full-time and nine part-time members, and the school benefits greatly from our supportive parish priests. Through the years, Little Flower School has had the loyal and generous support of an active Parents’ Club Organization, and, since 1994, of an involved School Board. Together we work within the framework of our school philosophy.

Since 1962, approximately 3,100 students have benefited from our commitment to quality Catholic education. Currently, 290 students of diverse economic and ethnic background are studying at Little Flower School. Over the past three years, Little Flower School has twice earned the “Best of Reno Award” in the Religious Schools category by the U.S. Commerce Association (USCA).
