Teacher seemed as if she was just there for a paycheck . Didn't want to have to deal with kids just sit and watch

We are finishing our first year at St. Paul and are thrilled with the quality of education our son has received. We have been very impressed with many aspects of this school. The teachers do a great job in being flexible with children who have special needs. The administration excels at communication, campus safety, and spiritual formation. We have found that a real sense of community is fostered at the school where kids from many grade levels know each by name and look out for each other. We couldn't be happier!

We were apprehensive about the Lakeland public schools having moved here a year ago from a very strong "A" rated public school district where our children had been enrolled. How fortunate and blessed we have been to find SPLS. The teachers are nurturing as well as willing to push the children to excel academically and develop spiritually. The principal and his staff are extremely professional and caring. And, as important, there is a great amount of parent involvement in all aspects of the school (academics, athletics and community). We have both a 6th and 2nd grader enrolled and they both love the school, their teachers and their many new friends. The only negative would be that the school does not advance to high school grade levels. We have heard from many parents that 8th grade graduates of SPLS tend to be leaders in any high school they choose to attend. Based upon what we have experienced, we believe that to be true.

Wonderful school. Great parent involved environment. First child has been there since two years old and now in elementary. He is thriving as a student and as an individual. Second child in first year there and plan to continue. Great kids, curriculum and Christian atmosphere. Very happy at St. Paul's.

If you notice, there are no reviews since June of 2010. Prior, there was an awesome principal who made the school what it is. Sadly, the new principal is not a good fit. He is borderline abusive to both staff and students. Children and staff alike are afraid of him and afraid to speak out. When parents question what is happening, it is pushed under a rug and the excuse of...That was a problem child....are made. There are serious bullying issues at this school. Parents, ask former families why there has been an exodus out of the school before listening to the principal. Some of them have very well documented serious issues. It's too bad that what was once a fabulous school has been torn down in a very small amount of time. My below average rating is based on the Principal and his lack of professionalism and true Christianity. :(

This school is the best kept secret in Polk County. The teachers and staff are so well trained and educated. The academics is far superior to what we saw at LCS. The children are taught about Christ in a loving way and my children really enjoy the chapels. This school and environment is like school from the past. While progressive and highly academic the staff and parents are so inviting whcih makes is feel like home. I strongly suggest this school for a superior experience.

A great school - beautiful campus - wonderful staff - knowledgeble teachers - academics a grade ahead of the rest. Do yourself a favor and atleast take a tour. When we got to St Paul Lutheran - there was no question where we wanted our child to be. I'm surprised more people do not know about this school. It's big but tucked away on a campus behind the church.

My child has truly grown a lot in this school. The ratio of teachers and students are small and the education program is excellent.
