St. Paul School
- St. Paul School, a K-8 parish school founded in 1952, serves the diverse cultural community in West Contra Costa County by assisting parents with their responsibility as the primary educators of their children.
- Firmly rooted in Catholic tradition and the Word of God, St. Paul School provides a quality education, which engages the whole child to become a faith-filled, responsible human being, with a love for God and learning.
- The philosophy of St. Paul School is twofold: first, to impart through instruction and example, the truths of the Christian faith as found in the Roman Catholic tradition; second, to provide an academic curriculum and learning environment that enables students to achieve their learning potential and become responsible individuals in our Church and society.
- We believe the parents and caregivers are the primary educators and support them in this role.
- We provide relevant learning experiences to help students become confident and competent individuals who live within their community with integrity and faith.
- We recognize and celebrate the cultural diversity unique to our school, encouraging students to develop attitudes of mutual respect and understanding.
