Small class sizes, rigorous and individualized instruction, loving and very competent staff. If you are tired of your child being a statistic or a name at a public school St. Paul's is a great alternative.
On a weekly basis the children had to read at least 5 books (age and level appropriate). They also received math, writing, and word worksheets at least 3 days a week as well. Daily classwork to review at night.
My oldest has been there since Pre-3 (ECC). She excelled very well and I love the fact that they taught Spanish at 3. She just completed Kindergarten and really did WELL. Mrs. Frech is a awesome teacher. We just put our son in the pre-3 program (3 weeks in) and he's already singing church songs and speaking some Spanish. Can't wait to see how great he does as well as our 1st grader this school yr.
St. Paul's provides a great, nurturing environment where our children have been able to thrive. The Pre-2 and Pre-3 teachers really know my children well and take the time to share sweet stories about their days with us and they know when something is bothering them. The school provides many wonderful community building activities such as Fall Fest, May Fest, Craft Night, Mother's Day Breakfast and others that unite parents and children together. Their test scores are consistently exceeding other schools in the area and are often top ranked among other Lutheran schools. We've had a wonderful experience at St. Paul's and found all the teachers to be nurturing helping our children to grow academically and socially. I love that they teach the moral reasons for their rules through the teaching of Christ as well.
They teach these characters through their bible lessons each week and through teachable moments as children learn from their mistakes and learn how to share and interact with their friends in the pre-school.
I have been a parent at St. Paul's since 2013. My children have attended the ECC (pre-school) only and both of them have had positive experiences with their classmates and teachers. My oldest, who is now in elementary school, was well-prepared by her teachers at St. Paul--both academically and socially.
My one critique is the lack of leadership and communication from the principal. The school has so much potential, but without strong leadership and clear vision, it is not flourishing..
The school is fine from grades K-3, but after that goes downhill. Enrollment is dwindling. Many students are not re-enrolling. Families thinking about enrolling should be cautious and not be afraid to ask why the school is not even close to its full capacity.
