School Reviews

  • Recommended March 27, 2013 - St. Paul has an excellent teaching staff. It has provided a good Christian education to the community for many years. It is a safe, stable environment for our children. Tuition has not increased for 2013-14 so that it can be affordable. The teachers are dedicated to the students, providing the best education possible. I highly recommend St. Paul Lutheran School! Check out their website and see their classroom pages. - Posted by Student/Alumni
