Would strongly recommend enrolling at St. Paul! My children have been through public school and a different private school that left them behind. That will not happen at St. Paul! The teachers go above and beyond! During virtual all parents had cell phone numbers of teachers for assistance, and they were always right there for us and their students. They are kind, inclusive, and caring school for all children. I can`t praise them enough!!!

Wonderful school with great teachers! Building is always clean and well taken care of. Staff is amazing and always willing to help with your needs.

St. Paul faculty really believes in our children and what they can achieve with guidance. This year has been a difficult one, with the pandemic missing out on the extracurricular activities and sports. They give all students a chance to try out for a new activity. We have been blessed with parents and staff to stay home when they are sick that allows us to stay in person for learning . We love St. Paul as we are treated as a family and cares for.

All three of our children went to school here, and they all had a wonderful experience. I'm glad we chose St. Paul when we were looking for a school!
