The de Paul School Photo #1 - Located in the heart of the historic Highlands neighborhood, The de Paul School serves students from 40+ zip codes in the greater Louisville, Kentucky region
  • At The de Paul School, we teach a lot of bright kids who learn differently.
  • And we teach them the way they actually learn.
  • We also help kids understand how they learn, so they can overcome the barriers that can make learning tough for them and become independent learners.
  • Since we expect them to succeed, they usually do.
  • We offer a dedicated, specially-trained faculty, utilizing small group instruction in a highly-organized and calm school.
  • The broad and challenging course of study includes reading, spelling, writing, literature, mathematics, science, social studies, computer skills, physical education, social skills and values, and library skills.
