My 2nd grader and 6th grader have experienced tremendous spiritual and academic growth at St. Paul's. I wish we would have started their education there sooner! My 2nd grader started when he was in 1st grade after struggling with behavior in public schools. The St. Paul's staff has been excellent in guiding him toward appropriate behavior with care and patience. I truly believe that they want to see him succeed. This is the first year at the school for my 6th grader. It really seemed like the public school system was allowing her to advance without really grasping subject materials. St. Paul's gives us frequent updates on her progress and - whether it is the curriculum, the teaching methods, or the genuine interest they have in her success - she has shown improvement throughout the year.St. Paul's is teaching my kids the core subjects of math, reading, and science, but they are also engaging other mental exercises that we think are helpful such as spelling, grammar, and memorization, as well as "electives" like art and gym as part of the core curriculum. The entire staff at St. Paul's have been great. Teachers, the Principal, the aids and lunch workers, and even the pastors of the church have shown my kids kindness and patience. They are a great representation of Christ's love.
At St. Paul's we are like family. The Pastors and teachers are examples of how to live a life of faith and truly care about our children. They take the time to get to know each child and help them find and make use of their God-given talents. God's Word is present in all classes and is the foundation for how we are to interact with and treat others. The education goes beyond strong academics to include spiritual training and character building that grows faith and leads to becoming responsible, caring, Christian adults.
My daughter has flourished under the teachers here. She has high functioning autism; the teachers are always willing to work with her one on one and give her the extra time she needs. Academically she is right there with the rest of her class, and social she's blossomed so much. The teachers are very hands on, and great at communicating with parents for everything. The curriculum is surrounded with God's word, and at a level above most public schools. I cant say enough good things.
My children have attended St. Paul's since preschool and are far above their peers in public school with academics. St. Paul's more than meets needs of my children, if we have problems they are immediately addressed and the teachers have a willingness to work with parents on the needs of each individual child. They are not treated as a commodity for a enrollment numbers they are children first and foremost.

Seemingly never-ending school shootings prompted me to find out whether private schools were safer than public schools. Some answers and opinions on the matter here.
