My daughter has been at St. Paul PreSchool for about six months now, and I have really seen her bloom with their PreK 4 program. The teachers are highly effective and one thing that I truly appreciate is the way they get a child's attention, they start singing! It is really cute and has made my daughter start singing at home which I had not been able to do before now. It is hard to find a preschool in downtown Austin that is not only affordable but also is curriculum based and effective. I highly recommend this preschool program. I don't have any experience with the school program other than when the principal found out I was with the preschool at Back-to-School night she quickly dismissed me to move on to another parent rather than try and create a relationship with a future parent of her school.

St. Paul has offered an incredible preschool experience for my 2 year old son! The director, Tessa Spencer, and all his teachers have been highly professional, flexible, and very kind towards our family. Being a public school teacher, it is evident that they provide an outstanding experience and education beginning at the preschool level. Our son has learned so much and loves attending St. Paul.

Two of my children have graduated from St. Paul, and my third one is in his last year. We love St. Paul and the people there. Academic quality is very high, with availability of differentiated instruction for alternate learning styles. Outstanding music program in particular. We will definitely miss it, but my children are very well prepared for the next level.

This school features the small class size and individualized attention my daughter needed to succeed academically from 6th - 8th grade. She is now performing very well academically at Concordia High School here in the Austin area which is a college preparatory school. St. Paul also has a wonderful fine arts program in the way of their choir and band programs which attend performance competitions annually.
