I have one child in second grade and one in the baby saints program. The child in second grade has test scores through the roof. He can read novels on a 6th grade level. He was also accepted to a advanced charter school program but we are thrilled with how well St Paul's has done with him. The class size is limited ( Only 11 in my sons 2nd grade class). The baby saints program is incredible but again they are overwhelmed by the amount of applications they get versus how many spots they have.

St. Paul's provides the educational experience I could've only dreamt as having as a child, and I am thrilled that we are able to have our children attend St. Paul's. At St. Paul's you will find the academics are superb! The children engage in meaningful hands-on activities and projects, leadership is seen at all grade levels, and learning is exciting! My children are eager to learn and attend school daily! Teachers and administration are very receptive to the parents. Any issues that may occur, big or small, are quickly addressed and resolved. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved at this school, and parent involvement is encouraged.

It is a great learning environment where the kids enjoy a practical learning experience when reviewing core subject matter which helps with long term retention of information.

St. Paul's Episcopal is an excellent school. The student body is more diverse than many private New Orleans schools and the teachers are excellent! My kids love this school so much that they never want to miss a day. More importantly, this school provides a loving environment where kids excel and are able to be themselves no matter their nationality, race or religion. I would encourage any parent who wants the best in education for their child to check it out. My kids have been at St. Paul's since Pre-K and can't imagine being any other place.

This is my daughter's first year at St. Paul's. So far everyone is so helpful I'm looking forward to her having a great experience. They only have 12 students per class and I feel she'll get all the necessary help if required. All Of the teachers that I've spoken with or wonderful.

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.
