We chose St. Paul Lutheran School for our three children for a number of reasons. The first being the Christian environment and values. We feel it is very important that our children be not only able, but also encouraged, to share and grow in their faith. The second reason we chose St. Paul is the excellent academic opportunities provided by phenomenally caring and competent faculty, staff, and volunteers. The third reason we chose St. Paul Lutheran is the church and school are both very involved in community outreach and service. Compassion and citizenship are two things that are often overlooked in public school settings.
Two of our children are still attending St. Paul Lutheran, in 6th and 8th grade, but our oldest son graduated 8th grade and moved on to high school two years ago. He was well-prepared for the academic and moral challenges of public school. He has maintained a 4.0 GPA and has repeatedly demonstrated that his moral compass is on-point. We are very grateful for the opportunity to send our children to a loving, family-oriented Christian school.
Two of my grandchildren attend St. Paul Lutheran School. The enviornment is very positive – I like the way the teachers address the children, the time teachers spend working individually with students and the positive attitude my grandchildren have towards school. The friendships and camaraderie are built because of the way the classrooms are structured.
I like St. Paul School because it is smaller. There are less students in a class so your student has more “one on one” with their teacher.
The teachers at St. Paul are more understanding and change the room and way they teach so you can understand better. I learn better and quicker here than public school. Teachers spend more time correcting behavior in public schools. Teachers at St. Paul listen to what you need and that helps me understand. They will adjust learning so you understand. In a large school teachers don’t have time to help. They spend more time managing students at the public school. If there is something bothering me the teacher is willing to make changes because there are less students.
I know my teacher cares about me because he listens to me and understands. If you fail at something he lets you rework it cause failure is not an option.
I love my school because some friends respect me, and my teacher is nice to me. It’s called St. Paul Lutheran School, which means I’m a Christian. I love learning about Jesus. If you wonder about Jesus, I’m happy to tell you about him. If you have a king other than the Holy Spirit, Jesus, and God, then you’re wrong. I know that sounds crazy, but it is true. Hope you believe in God.
Being a military family, we have moved around a lot; therefore our kids have changed schools a lot. From the moment they started at St. Paul’s, our kids were welcomed and felt right at home. All 4 of them had teachers who encouraged and challenged them to do their best. We have loved that St. Paul’s is able to provide instruction at whatever level they are at (we have a couple that struggle in certain subjects). In the areas they are weak, the school was very flexible, and the classroom size allowed the teachers to really tailor the curriculum to help our kids achieve their highest potential. We are most thankful, however, for St. Paul’s commitment to incorporating Biblical instruction, character development, and Christian values into the classroom on a daily basis.
I believe parents should send their children to St. Paul because the people here are wonderful. I love my teachers and after-school club leaders. I love my friends, too. It is a Christian school, and we are free to share our faith and also to ask questions about it. The classes are small, so we don’t have to fight for the teachers’ attention. We go on lots of cool field trips and also have fun assemblies and other activities like dances and festivals. I also really like it when we get to spend time helping the preschoolers and kindergarteners. I really love being a “big buddy”.
Why I like St. Paul Lutheran School and Church.
There are several reasons why I like attending St. Paul Lutheran School. I like going to St. Paul is because people they are understanding. You will fit in with children of all ages. I remember when I first came to St. Paul, I was very shy and scared people would not like me. But after a couple days, I fit in. Also, the school makes you feel very welcome. I love this school because my family tried many different schools but people did not to like me very much. So, when my family enrolled me at St. Paul, I loved it. Finally, I said, “WOW” because they were teaching the word of God. At my old school we could not even say God. I also have been a member of St. Paul Church for as long as I can remember – we have children’s church and also a weekly bible study.
My favorite things about this school are: teachers have time to help with subjects you struggle in because we have smaller classes, students and parents are more comfortable with expressing how they feel about God and how much faith we have in Him, and finally the school volunteers for special charities to help the homeless.
I like this school because the teachers are nice and try their best to make learning interesting. Teachers don’t get upset when you ask for help. If you have a problem with something they will try their best to help you. This is the best school I have had yet, because the student ratio is 8 to 1 which means the students get more 1 on 1 time. I like how the teachers here can have fun and at the same time teach productively.
St. Paul Lutheran School has provided an opportunity for my child to excel or improve in academics, social skills, and faith. Great teachers and staff provide individual attention and help to each student.
The teachers and staff have encouraged the students to accept differences in each other, to be accountable for their actions, to accept constructive criticism, and to deal with peer pressure and each other. They develop life skills which will be needed in the future.
Christian values and beliefs are taught or stressed in and out of the classroom. Kindness, respect, forgiveness, and caring are among the virtues your child will learn and use in the future. These intangible benefits and prayer may not be afforded at other schools.
St. Paul Lutheran School provides your child with a sense of belonging. Not only are they part of a community, but part of a “family” ……St. Paul Lutheran School “Family”.
