We couldn`t ask for a better school for our children! The principal and her leadership sets a tone of respect, high moral principals, fantastic academics and a loving environment that focuses on educating the whole person. We are so grateful for the committed teachers who truly care about the students and are dedicated in every way. We highly recommend St. Paul`s to anyone who is looking to belong to a wonderful community of families who are committed to the success of the overall mission. With five children spanning the ages of 3-13, we have seen all areas of the school and are very happy. We also love that the junior high students are involved in faith families and book buddies and other programs where the little ones look up to the older students as they cooperate in these mixed class learning opportunities. We can`t say enough great things about this school and community!

A wonderful place to send your child. Such a welcoming community that makes you feel right at home. Kids will be taught curriculum at all schools; however, character is something St. Paul's will cultivate, guiding students throughout their lives. This is such a special place to belong and we are thankful for St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School.
