St. Paul's School

In 1986, St. Paul's School became the first school in Houston and among the first in the country to be accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) as meeting national standards of quality in early childhood education.
Accreditation has been maintained each year since 1986. On July 31, 2007, St. Paul's School was granted accreditation status under the new program standards and criteria, once again being one of the first schools in the Houston area to achieve this recognition.
St. Paul's School is also licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, and is inspected annually by the City of Houston Fire Department.
St. Paul's School teachers and staff are special people. The goal of every staff member is to help each child grow in a well-rounded way: socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually.
Teachers carefully plan activities that allow children to express themselves, experience freedom of choice, and develop self-reliance and spontaneity.
