There are so many reasons why I love St. Paul's Lutheran school and the ECDC. We moved to the city of Orange about four years ago when our son was in Pre-K and oldest daughter was about to start 2nd grade. My daughter had such an easy and smooth transition, because of her loving and welcoming second grade classmates and teacher (Mrs. Guebert). I could not have asked for a better situation. She immediately loved the teachers, staff and all of the many close friends that she made. We have met many wonderful families at the school as well. There are so many ways to be involved at the school, which I value (sports, music, committees, cheer, etc.) I love the Christ-centered education that she is receiving at St. Paul's. Every year has been a wonderful experience. I love the campus as well, because of the huge grassy fields, the new event center. My son is now in 2nd grade, and our youngest daughter is about to start at the preschool (ECDC). I highly recommend St. Paul's!!

While attending ECDC (the Preschool), I was consistently impressed with the staff selection and classroom balance. Because of this positive experience and concern regarding our home public school, I choose to evaluate and subsequently enroll our children in St. Paul's Lutheran School's. St. Paul's Lutheran School's largest asset so far: -employment of loving Christian individuals and its commitment to continued professional development of its employees -the school's Blue Ribbon status, NLSA recognition as exemplary accredited schools 2013-14, WASC accreditation & small classes (max 25) -spacious campus and efforts to expand its buildings (the recently completed Event Center is huge!) and utility -highest matriculation to OLU My kids are excited to participate in sports & Lego Robotics when they get older!

I have two girls currently at St. Paul's. One at the big school and one at ECDC. I would not have them anywhere else. The teachers, staff and parents are great and very family oriented. The children get a good balance of academics, religions, fun and nurturing. I wouldn't have my girls anywhere else.

My daughter is in kindergarten at the K-8th campus and is growing so much this year. The kindergarten teachers and all of the teachers are amazing - they are nurturing, have great classroom management and are very experienced to teach all skill levels of children. The teachers are trained and experienced to really offer a specialized curriculum for each child, as well as work with each child individually on their character traits. There are so many activities to get involved in at the school and the community is wonderful to be a part of....it is the best decision we have made to choose St. Paul's for our daughter's education and home away from home.
