School Reviews

I highly recommend Saint Paul's Lutheran School! My son started in a local Prior Lake Public School and I was appalled at the manner children were able to tease each other and the lack of teacher involvement in the issue. I have been beyond pleased at the school curriculum and the compassion of the teachers. The school teaches Spanish starting in Kindergarten and teaches a wide variety of the arts. The school offers sports and after/ before school care. The school has made a tremendous difference in my son's confidence. Saint Paul's Lutheran is an amazing gift to the families of Prior Lake!
