What a fantastic year! It was amazing to see how much my preschooler has grown. The new curriculum is fantastic! I love the way that letters (both upper and lower case) were presented this year through songs, projects, and play. My son would come home each day and sing me their new letter song and was proud to hang his letter of the week on our letter wall. I appreciated the teacher sending "homework" assignments home periodically to help develop cutting and writing skills. As a parent, it is great to be able to reinforce at home what my child is learning at school. Each time I volunteered in the classroom it was such a treat to see all of the creative ways math and literacy skills were being taught. From patterns, to counting, to letters, cutting, and writing skills St. Paul Preschool has it all! We can't wait to see what the 4 year old class has in store for us next year!
Though I love this school, I do have to say that I was disappointed with my child's first year of pre-school. I'm not really sure how our child is supposed to be ready for kindergarten when she can't even identify all of her letters or numbers yet (something...silly me, I thought she would have been shown and taught). I will give this school another chance and hope and pray that my child learns more in the next level of pre-school than she appeared to in the first, otherwise, she won't be ready. My child can already do handprints and paint...she doesn't need to be taught that or have that as a main focus in pre-school. She's there to learn, if I wanted her to spend her short time in class painting and eating snacks then I would have just put her in daycare.
This school is fantastic!! This is my daughters second year at St. Paul and I have not been disappointed yet. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers are helpful and really care about my child. My daughter will be attending until eighth grade.
St. Paul Lutheran School has everything a family could want. An expanded Child Care Center, a preschool, a K-8 school, and has its home in the same building as the church. A great environment for children and parents.
St. Paul School is a great place to be a student and a parent. We chose St. Paul for kindergarten and couldn't be happier. Our kids are so far beyond public school it is amazing! It is the best education out there in Lapeer County - bar none. I always get asked two questions about St. Paul. Is it only for Lutherans? No - anyone can attend. And parents always ask about the cost. It is not really that costly as St. Paul allows monthly payments! St. Paul is the best choice in Lapeer.
We have sent our Son here for the 3 and the 4 year old preschool program and couldnt be more pleased with the curriculum and the teachers. We are planning on sending him for the new next year 'All Day Kindergarten' program and are looking forward to it.
St. Paul is an excellent school. Academics are top notch and the entire staff not only teaches Christian values, they model them. They give you the feeling that you and your child are part of a family and everyone really does care about each other. Its a great place to get your kids off on the right foot - not only in school but in life.
St. Paul Lutheran School in Lapeer is a wonderful school. I am most pleased with every aspect of this school. The entire teaching staff is comprised of intelligent and caring individuals who always put the students needs first. These unselfish individuals teach for much less pay than the public school system teachers make and they do a better job of it! The student body is made up of the most caring children I have ever met. Truly, this school sets the example of how God works in every childs life, both in and out of the classroom. In a nutshell - St. Paul Lutheran School in Lapeer gets it!!!
