Lucas Blackburn, Principal

Here at Patterson, we expect our students to learn by doing. Critical thinking, perseverance and a growth mindset will set our students up for a brighter future.  You can expect your student to be actively engaged in their learning and a part of the process in the mastery of concepts. This is accomplished by cultivating positive relationships with ALL students and ensuring support for the whole child, including social/emotional well being.  We pride ourselves by not only advocating for your child but inviting you onto our campus to be a part of the learning. Together, we can offer a wonderful, world-class education for EVERY student who walks through the door.

Thank you for your interest in Patterson.  Please call to set up a tour and meet the Principal!
