St. Paul is an inclusive community that cares about everyone despite race, color or background. It is an environment that fosters parents involvement in their children's education. Well educated teachers and great student to teacher ratios allow for constant interaction and learning for each student. After 4 years, we love St. Paul and are excited about the well rounded educations our boys are receiving.
