St. Paul's is very lucky to have acquired such a great teaching staff and in addition, a wonderful new principal, Joann Leskanic. She has brought the school together this year in many ways. Academics have always been a vital part of the school, but this year the Accelerated Reader program has been added as well as Jr. Honor Society. Our sports teams have also acceled over the past few years. Many of our graduates are still doing very well at BKHS and BJSHS as well as public schools they are attending. My children have been at the school for 7 years now and would be crushed if they had to leave. They have truly been in a remarkable environment and have learned well above their grade level. A great value for the money!

The St. Paul's Principal/Teacher Leadership Team cannot be beat! My child has been at St Pauls since PK, now in 1st. With this wonderful teaching staff he has thrived academically and socially. This year, he has even noticed the leadership and organizational improvements and he appreciates this! Students are expected to respect and care for others, to do their best, to be responsible, and to challenge themselves. This is a great school to be a part of!

Our children started this year at St. Paul's and love it. They attended the summer camp at St. Paul's to make friends and are now feeling so welcome and included in all aspects of their schooling.

My son went to Ruth N. Upson for 2yrs and is on his 3rd year with St. Paul's and is doing much better scholastically. The principal and front office staff are extremely welcoming and know most every parent's name and face.

Best kept secret in Jacksonville! Very attentive, caring faculty that is easily approached about issues. They really work to keep you informed about your child's progress. Small size doesn't let any troubled children 'fly under the radar.' Tuition costs are very reasonable for a private school. Has a genuine caring, family environment. Our children, and their classmates, have thrived there.

St. Paul's provides a well rounded academic program that is challenging yet affordable.

The education offered is excellent. Many activities (chorus, cheerleading) are very poorly organized. The principal is very nice, but has not served our needs effectively.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
