St. Paul has an excellent teaching staff. It has provided a good Christian education to the community for many years. It is a safe, stable environment for our children. Tuition has not increased for 2013-14 so that it can be affordable. The teachers are dedicated to the students, providing the best education possible. I highly recommend St. Paul Lutheran School!

St. Paul offers a full and well-rounded curriculum that is closely tied to the state standards. The teachers are highly qualified and dedicated to each student. Parents and students know the safe environment and strong discipline make a situation where learning and growing can occur. The Christian base sets the tone for all that is done.

I've been at St.Paul for almost 8 yrs.( since Pre-Jk) and i love the school. The teachers aren't rude when parents are around.They care about there jobs, but lately in the past 8 yrs. things have really changed. Some things have improved like tech, but the things have not improved would be enrollment. The tuition has increase and the students started to decrease. But over all the St.Paul is a good school. If you want your children to get a good good Christian education sent them to St.Paul Lutheran Melrose Park.

I have two children that attend St. Paul. I love the school and so do my children. The teachers are great and really care about the welfare of the children. There is very good communication between teachers and parents. There is a great playground and no uniforms, things you no longer see out of public schools. Overall, children attending St. Paul in my opinion recieve a well balanced education.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
