Very disappointed that as the new year approaches to learn that the school hired another parent as a full time teacher ,who I am sure has not bend teaching in15 years if every..With all teachers looking for work and other people out of work I am sure there had to be a lot better outside choice..We pay a lot of money to sent are kids to school here give them a chance a fair one at least..

This school is a gift from God! I do not understand the reviews that are negative here. Mrs. Ritchie is the most awesome principal I have ever seen in my life.The way that she has complete control of the school is something that is amazing to watch.She commands respect and encourages compassion and love at the same time. I do not say this lightly as I, too, believed the hype about public schools being more advanced and competitive.I transferred my child in 5th grade.He is doing biology, algebra, research papers, spanish. music, art, and learning about the values Jesus taught us. You can give your child all the "bells and whistles" that life has to offer, and if you don't give them God, you have given them nothing. The teachers and staff love the kids.I adore this school and don't mind making the sacrifice of extra tuition even though I live in a very competitive school district.No one can tell me differently, I have sat with the teachers and gone over the public school curriculum versus their's line by line.St Paul's far exceeds what is expected at our public school.Most of the kids go on to make honor role in Don Bosco,St Joe's,andIHA. Elite schools that you can never question.

Absolutely HORRIBLE. DO NOT GO HERE. I was bullied throughout my whole experience here and according to the principle it was my fault and they loved the person who was performing it. All of the students follow an example of being racist, homophobic, and anti-Semitic. This behavior is ignored or encouraged by teachers. The education is horrible (except for the history department). I went to high school and had problems with English, ESPECIALLY SCIENCE, and Math. If you did not start going to this school in kindergarden they keep you in the "lower" class your whole time. I finally in 8th grade took a Language Arts class that was my level. They also keep you back in Math which impacts standardized test scores in Math by far. Now in high school, I love it and the teachers know what they are doing. I still have trouble because of the simple things St. Paul's did not teach me. Most of the teachers are horrible and the majority of the students are closed minded.

I went to this school I am now 22. I left when I was in 8th grade and went to a public high school. Terribly behind in academics, life experiences, and exposure to other races of people from different walks of life was a shock to me. If you know what's good for your kid, you will send them to public school where they will get a FAR better education, for FREE ! I regret my parents decision to send me there constantly. The education is sub par and the staff are not nearly as qualified as public school teachers. Plus the religion classes spew pure misinformation which no body should be exposed to.

We have been part of the school for 6 years and loved watching our kids grow here. Not only do they soar academically in this caring environment, they have thrived with the personal attention, high ethical standards and respectiful behavior. As parents, we have enjoyed having a really meaningful role in our kids educations which we were not able to have at public schools. Staff, kids and parents put their heart and sole in which is wonderful to see.

This school is terrific spiritually,academically, and socially. The children get a great foundation and are very well prepared for their future.The school also teaches Christian values and self discipline. Service projects encourage the students to help others. The teachers are highly qualified and committed to their students. They are always available to their students and the children know their teachers really care about them. The technology offered at St.Paul Interparochial School is excellent. iPads, Smartboards and the Promethean Board are all available to enhance the learning experience. The school environment is very nuturing and promotes high self esteem. There are a host of activites to meet every interest group. The after hours program is very affordable for working parents. This school is simply amazing! I am so glad my children are a part of this great community!!

Excellent academic, spiritual, and social environment! We have been at St. Paul s for 6 years. This summer we have had to relocate due to new job opportunities. Leaving this school has been extremely difficult because I have watched the Faculty and Staff at St. Paul s nurture my children s mind and spirit for many years. This school provides a learning environment that instills a lifelong love of learning. My three children have developed phenomenal study and organizational skills. After being at St. Paul s, I feel confident that my children will exceed anywhere! All of the children are encouraged to develop to their fullest potential. At this school you not only have access to a fantastic scholastic program but, there are many extracurricular activities any sport or club you can think of. The Theater/Drama program will knock your socks off. The parents and students all have a great sense of camaraderie. We all route for one another. The students are all courteous and respectful. You really feel as though you are a part of something very special. A school like this is hard to find (trust me, I have been looking!!!) No doubt, great school!

Extremely dissatisfying experience at this school. I have 2 sons who went here and are no longer at this school due to the dysfunctional atmosphere and lack of engaging activities as well as opportunities for advancement. Students are nice, but as in every school can be very manipulative. Money talks here. Those who contribute the most $$$ get good marks and special favors.

am a parent of 3 St Paul School graduates who are now in high school and college. All my children attended this wonderful school for 9 years from kindergarten through 8th grade. They received more than an education in the academic sense as they have grown in to young adults who continue to attend mass and volunteer in their communities. They have thrived at Don Bosco and Immaculate Heart following their St Paul years. No school, no grade, in any town in our state can exist and turn out graduates who fly through their grade school years unaffected by the ups and downs that accompany a normal childhood. However St Paul School, along with its faculty and administration in my opinion, has enabled my children to overcome the normal ups and downs with grace and class. I highly recommend this wonderful institution, nestled in a community with great public schools, if you are looking for a school that can easily compete with others in the area while integrating faith into the daily routine

I am proud to say that I have been a teacher at Saint Paul Interparochial School for the past four years. The children that I teach are my heart and soul. They mean the world to me. I am deeply saddened by some of the reviews that I see posted on this page, and wanted to express that Saint Paul Interparochial is a truly a wonderful school. Teachers at S.P.I.S. work hard to make sure that every child has the opportunity to shine whether it is through academics, sports, or other after school activities. At S.P.I.S., we are in the business of producing creative, well-mannered, caring children. We instill in them a sense of responsibility to themselves and to their community. I have chosen to submit this response without coercion or persuasion and in my own leisure because I sincerely believe in what this school stands for.

Don't go to this school! The parents are terrible and get involved in every little fight their children get into. Everyone in the school is 'cliquey', even the parents. When the children transfer to catholic/public high schools they go into low classes, while kids who attended public middle schools go into sophmore or junior classes. The drama program is just terrible- the parents will practically shun your child if they miss one little rehearsal. The shows are great, don't get me wrong, but the parents get way way way too involved. Talk about drama mamas. The children obviously inherit their behavior from their parents and follow in their footsteps. St. Paul's has some great parents, and students, but not as many as other schools.

2 of my children have attended St. Paul and two are attending the school now. I must say the children love it. The teachers are amazing and the after school programs are just the cherry on top. My daughter is involved with the sprots, academic challenge, and the drama progam. And my husband is incharge of the basketball program. We just love it.

My son attended St. Paul from K thru 3, which was much too long. We moved him for the 4th grade. The academics and the environment at St. Paul are awful. The poor academics are not surprising given the lack of resources and teaching but we were shocked by the misbehavior and bullying in the general student population and the non-responsiveness of the faculty and administration to address the issues.
