When my son was entering Kindergarten, I toured 15 different schools in West County before selecting St. Paul's. We are so happy with the school and the community it provides our family. The teachers are incredibly talented and loving individuals. The smaller class size allows my son to get extra time and allows the teachers the ability to adapt to the needs of the students on a given day. Other perks: centrally located at Ballas & Manchester, balanced literacy reading program, piano lessons start in grade 2 and can be taken during the day, the after care program is pay as you need it (only $10 per day), strong PTL and parent involvement, smartboards in all classrooms, strong commitment to the success of all students! We love it here!

We have 2 kids at St. Pauls, and are extremely happy with the Christ- centered education they are receiving. The academic programs are strong, the teachers are fully engaged, and the growth that we have seen in our children is quite impressive. For any family that may be exploring education options, I can highly recommend St. Paul's Lutheran.

We love the strong music, math and science programs at St. Paul's . After school care and summer camps are available and flexible. Our kids have been educated in a faith based school that immerses them in the word of God.

We love St. Paul's Lutheran School, which is providing our children an excellent education, quality Christian teaching, and a truly supportive atmosphere. Your children will be nurtured to develop into caring leaders with a strong Christian worldview. There is a sense of "family" at this school that you will not find at very many other schools.

St. Paul's is a Lutheran school that provides excellent academics in a Christian setting. We are blessed with great teachers and a superior principal. My children love going to school and I am continually amazed by how much they learn every year. The teachers truly "think outside the box". Also, the children know that their teachers and the rest of the staff care about them.

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.
