Advantages of a Sion Education

As you enter our historic campus in Hyde Park in Kansas City, it’s almost as if you can hear the echo of footsteps of every boy and girl who has been welcomed into the Notre Dame de Sion School family over the last 100 years.
And the tradition of the founding Sisters continues today with each dedicated educator that brings to life the mission of respecting the value and dignity of each child through individualize instruction meeting each student’s needs. Sion provides a safe and loving learning environment that encourages and supports every student to become their best self.
Unique to Sion, we provide a premier educational program that introduces each and every Sion student to a world of possibility and wonder.
From our 1:1 technology integration and STEM classes to our indoor swimming program and award winning world languages program, beginning in pre-school a Sion education goes beyond what any other school in Kansas City can offer. As students grow in their curiosity and thirst for knowledge, Sion’s academic program offers students in 4th grade through Middle School, state-of- the-art instrumental music and visual art programs and multiple opportunities for after-school athletic and enrichment programs. Students are invited to participate in the annual spring musical and year-round athletics including cross country, track, basketball, and volleyball. The Middle School is actively participating on Debate and Science Olympiad teams that all students are welcome to join. In addition, we have a regionally recognized and award-winning community garden that every grade level accesses for curriculum integration, and services our lunch program. All resulting in an innovative, exceptional learning environment that allows your child to learn to be curious, explore the possibilities and find their passion.
The history and charism of the founding sisters is cherished with a purposeful curiosity about other faith traditions as well as our own Catholic faith.
The curriculum at Sion is infused with a focus on Catholic social teachings and opportunities for interfaith dialogue to guide students to be a part of bringing about a world of peace, justice, and love. Sion provides a safe and diverse learning environment where caring for one another and personal growth are real and important values of the school community.
Notre Dame de Sion School is a tight knit and supportive community that encourages students to find their voice and be heard, yet spacious enough to allow each child to discover their strengths and reach their highest potential.
Sion’s vision for every child is to empower them to be passionate, lifelong learners with confidence, courage and compassion prepared to meet the challenges of a complex and diverse world.
