We couldn't imagine a better school for our children! The focus on academics is strong and the education excellent, but one of the things we love most about St. Pauls is that they truly value and care about enhancing the character of their students. The teachers and staff are fantastic and loving, and the community as a whole is a wonderful environment to be part of for the entire family. St. Pauls is a gem in the KC school world, and we are so happy to have found it!

St. Paul`s is amazing! When I was trying to decide where to send my children to school I remembered the amazing experiences and fond memories I had as a student at St. Paul`s. I have had a child here for the last 5 years and now have 2 children attending St. Paul`s. We can`t imagine sending our kids anywhere else. The teachers and administrators are encouraging, flexible, kind, knowledgeable, and hard working. My 2 children in this school have very different needs and personalities from one another. This school has worked well with each of them. If you are looking for not only a great school but a wonderful community to join, St. Paul`s is the place for your family!

The teachers at St. Paul's are exceptional! They create amazing themed units that tie together all of their teaching subjects in a way that makes it fun and interesting for the kids. The small class sizes allow for personalized attention, something we wouldn't get anywhere else!

I can't imagine a better school for my children to attend! The care, compassion, and love that all the staff and teachers give to students on a daily basis make a tremendous impact on developing confident and successful learners. I also love the emphasis on developing life skills through the character qualities taught each month--Flexibility, Sharing, Creativity,etc. The school truly lives up to it's mission to develop confident learners, ethical leaders and compassionate, engaged citizens.

St. Paul's has been an excellent choice for our boys, from kindergarten through middle school. The teachers and administrators have modeled accountability and expected it in return. Academics are challenging, yet allow for balance with extracurricular activities, sports, and family life. The daily chapel lessons are a solid blend of faith and life application. We love that public speaking is a requirement from the earliest grades--it builds confidence! Each grade requires a higher level of personal time management skills and focus than the last, and it's impressive to watch the children grow in those ways. We're thankful for the welcoming community we've found at St. Paul's; we and the boys have made friendships that will last a lifetime. Schools are human institutions (so none are perfect), but any issues we've encountered have been dealt with directly and thoughtfully. We highly recommend St. Paul's to parents who want their children to become confident learners, leaders, and engaged members of the global community.

We have been parents at St. Paul's for the past three years and have seen our child grow and thrive in the school's warm, caring community. The teachers in the ECC have been phenomenal. They truly connect with the children and set high expectations that the kids want to live up to! We also appreciate St. Paul's daily chapel, which is inclusive and joyful, and the school's focus on life skills and character development.

We value the excellence in education at St. Paul's, especially the emphasis on integrating STEAM curriculum at every grade level. The character education and community of support the school creates is remarkable! We explored almost every private school option in the area and found this school to meet all of our criteria. They believe in active learning environments for children, Toddler-8th. I love seeing evidence of Design Thinking methods at the Kindergarten level! The after care program is wonderful as well.

The community at St. Paul's is so warm and welcoming. My daughter currently attends St. Paul's - and is receiving an excellent education. Additionally, St. Paul's offers fun and educational enrichment classes after school like; cooking, book club, art, and many more. There is so much respect and kindness that is fostered at this faith based school. I'm grateful that my daughter is benefiting from this amazing educational experience. I highly recommend St. Paul's.
