We have been part of the St Paul community for four years. The education is exceptional. Teachers are excited to teach, working extra hard to prepare all the children. The after school activities give the children the ability to be exposed to many of the arts and actual participation in the sports they are interested in. Leadership continues to work on many improvements. There have been recent updates to the playground equipment and computers. They continue to listen to the needs of the families and encouraging the students to reach new goals! Our students consistently outperform others in testing. Graduates move on to many types of high school education and are well prepared. St Paul is Great!

We have been very happy with St Paul for the 2011 year. There are many opportunities and the Kindergarten teacher is extremely warm and yet professional. I highly recommend this school to anyone.
