St. Paul is truly a loving community. All the staff and teachers are amazing, and they care for our kids like their own. They have worked with my kids' to meet their independent social and academic needs and we have all made incredible friends in the process. There are so many activities, from athletics to art to music. My daughter was there for K-1 and my son will be there from Pre-K through 1. I have been so impressed by the growth in our kids have experienced while at St. Paul. Early education is a play based and allows the kids plenty of time to explore in the classroom and outdoors. We are not religious, but we have never been made to feel unwelcome. The SPECK program has been wonderful for before and aftercare, which was imperative for us. I am truly grateful for finding this school.

Coming to St. Paul is joining a community who will help your children's emotional, academic and spiritual growth. I've had children at St. Paul the last 15 years from in PK - 8th grade and am so thankful that we found St. Paul and invested in their future. They were prepared for high school in every possible way - academically, socially/spiritually, and organizational and advocacy skills they needed to succeed. I highly recommend this school.

St Paul's school is a great choice for your children. The school has a sweet family feel while being professional. My kids are excited to attend and are growing academically. The teachers are caring and want to work with parents to see their child succeed. I would definitely recommend St. Paul's.

My oldest child is a graduate and my other two children currently attend St. Paul. They started in PK and it has been such a blessing to have all three of them attending at the same time for so many years. The older kids interact with the younger kids and are such great role models - they are reading and chapel buddies; they help with gym classes and the younger kids can come watch sporting and fine arts events. St. Paul students and their parents become part of a family not just a community, whether you attend church at St. Paul or not. Everyone cares about the success of your child in all aspects - academics, social, service, sports, clubs and fine arts. Developing the faith and character of your child is a critical part of the school mission. You are not a number or even just a name. Everyone knows you and your child and works to tailor learning to challenge them; whether they need extra time with their teachers or with resource teachers. Although most grade levels have one class there are small groups for various levels of aptitude so children can learn at their level. We are thankful to have found St. Paul and can not imagine sending our children anywhere else!
