St Paul The Apostle School5

As a new employee, I enjoy becoming part of St. Paul the Apostle s progressive, welcoming, diverse, and growing community. It feels like family here. The classrooms are recently renovated, providing a fresh environment for learning. The grounds are spacious for play. St. Paul s smaller class sizes allow for more individualized instruction, and the small-school' feel enables students to interact with each other across grade level. Most importantly: Catholic education ministers not only to the mind, but to the heart and soul as well. It provides a safe, grounding foundation that will guide children s choices throughout their life.
I love how the parents and grandparents come together to help out the students and the school. The administration, teachers and support staff together with the parents make this school something special!
We enrolled our students at St. Paul last year after touring several other Catholic School in Kent County. We chose St. Paul because the moment you walk in the door, you feel welcomed! The small school community embraces all new families. We had hesitation about moving our eldest, who is in the 5th grade, because of how settled he was in his previous school. Despite these reservations, we have never seen our children happier in school and both are excelling academically. St. Paul is truly a college prep k-8 institution and the fact that the standardized scores exceed the diocese average is just one measure of this. From the families to the staff, to the administration, this school rates an A+ and we could not be happier!!!
You get the whole nine yards with a school like St. Paul the Apostle. From their Haiti food and clothing drives to their academic excellence, you feel like you are involved in every aspect of helping the students achieve for the greater good. They not only are some of the brightest students you will meet, but they also care for the world around them. Our family has 3 students at St. Paul the Apostle School and since we joined 5 years ago, we have had a feeling of belonging to a community that cares.
SPA is a wonderful school. The teachers are great, the environment is safe, my kids love going to school and love learning here. The kindergarten program is excellent. There are two excellent teachers who share the week. The kids benefit from having two completely different, qualified teachers. Several options also, k-all day everyday being one. Mom and Dad and kids couldn't be happier here!
