The K-6 curriculum of St. Patrick School is fully aligned with the Iowa Core. On the Iowa Department of Education website, the Iowa Core is explained as follows: "The vision for the Iowa Core is to ensure the success of each and every student by providing a world-class curriculum. The Iowa Core is designed to improve achievement of all students, preparing them for the world of work and lifelong learning. It identifies the essential content and instruction of critical content areas that all students must experience."

Religion is taught in the classroom every day at St. Patrick School, and Christian values are woven into the school life of all students and staff. St. Patrick School has adopted a religion curriculum at each grade level, K through 6. The curriculum for each grade is divided into three areas of student outcomes: Message, Service/Community, and Worship.
