St. Matthew Catholic School first opened its doors in 2006 with grades 4K through 3rd. After many years of dreaming about a Catholic School for St. Matthew Parish and for El Paso's West Side, the dream became a reality. Under the leadership of the new principal, Mrs. Carol Montoya, and St. Matthew Catholic Parish pastor, Reverend Monsignor David G. Fierro, the school thrived and grew from a foundational 45 students to over 180 in the first five years, adding a grade at a time each year consecutively.
Today, under the leadership of Principal, Mrs. Olga Macias, and Assistant Principal, Ms. Veronica De La Cruz, St. Matthew Catholic School enrolls 300 students and is graduating its sixth 8th grade class in the Spring of 2017. St. Matthew Catholic School continues to grow and educate students from El Paso, New Mexico, and Mexico. With its faith-filled culture and academically enriching curriculum, St. Matthew Catholic School is El Paso's West Side best kept secret. Thanks to the generosity of many parishioners and community members, St. Matthew Catholic School continues to serve our community families seeking a Catholic Education.
