    Brief History:
    St. Anthony of Padua School, founded in 1904 by the Sisters of Holy Cross, is a parish elementary school located in the southeastern corner of Manchester, NH, and operates under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Manchester.
    The existence of Saint Anthony of Padua Elementary School is credited to the foresight and dreams of Bishop George Guertin. He first arrived at Saint Anthony Parish on October 2,  1890 and immediately delved into the task of building for the future. His foresight and wisdom were contributing factors in two separate land purchases that insured the further development of parish institutions.

    Under the present leadership skills of our Pastor, Rev. Fr. Richard Dion & Mrs. Betty Ann Beebe, principal, Saint Anthony of Padua Elementary School continues to prepared students to live faith-filled lives.
