About the School

Nativity Parish School is in Leawood, Kansas, Johnson County, a southern, suburban community in the Kansas City area.

The school is an integral part of Church of the Nativity, a thriving parish that opened in 1986 with 417 families and currently has over 1,600 families. Nativity Parish School grew from this thriving parish, opening its doors for the first time in the fall of 1992 with 67 students. Currently, with grades K-8, there are 580 students.

Nativity Parish School offers an excellent Catholic education combining faith and knowledge, tradition and innovation, in a safe, loving, community atmosphere. Gospel values are lived daily through actions and instruction.


Beginning in mid-September, Nativity first graders collected diapers, wipes, infant formula, children's clothing and other items for Hurricane evacuees as part of the relief effort.

With the assistance of their teachers, parents and neighbors, Nativity first graders collected two van-loads full of donations, which are going to the hurricane-ravaged areas of the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast region. Price Chopper is transporting the donated goods in conjunction with the America Red Cross. First graders collected donations as a part of their ongoing service obligations to the Nativity community. We are very proud of their efforts to make a difference in the lives of others by helping people who are so desperately in need.

We also thank Mrs. Susan Hangauer, Mrs. Amy Setter, and Ms. Kelly Clune for their support and encouragement of their students in this altruistic endeavor!
