St. Paul''s is a great school. I have a child in 2nd and 4th grade. They both love the school and don''t want to go to anywhere else. It is a great place to send your child if you are looking for a great staff who sincerely care about your child and want to see them succeed. You get the feeling of family when you walk in the gates. It is the right size school that your child will never get lost in translation. Great place to make great memories.

There isn''t enough space here for me to list everything I love about St. Paul''s First Lutheran School. I will quote from their School Handbook, page 4: "The Word assures us that every person is God''s special creation for whom God has a special purpose." It is this spiritual principle that guides the staff as they interact uniquely with each child at St. Paul''s. God''s Word is the basis of everything they do; my kids have been extremely blessed by people for whom teaching is not only a gift, but a calling. Our daughter went to St. Paul''s Preschool and was well-prepared for Kindergarten and beyond. She''s now in 4th grade and is following her brother, who is in 6th grade, through the school''s excellent academic, music, sports and Christian studies programs. The Principal is a Godly leader with a servant''s heart. Every teacher has exceeded my expectations, and understands my kids in a way that is only possible with God''s Word as their rock-solid foundation. And by putting scripture into practice, students are taught to "love your neighbor as yourself." Accordingly, the kids are respectful and polite, both to adults and to each other. I highly recommend this fun, safe, nurturing and spiritually enriching environment to anyone looking for a place for their children to learn.

St. Paul''s is great if you want your child to grow in academics, build character, and participate in sports and music in a safe, community oriented school. The best part is that the students are relaxed and able to enjoy their childhood.

I have a student going into 2nd grade and another entering the 4 year old kindergarten class this year. The teachers are excellent and continuously go above and beyond to assist their students. The school is a great size and has a family feeling. The music program is wonderful and they have lots of athletics. Overall this is a great school for a family looking for a solid academic, Christian experience.
