Saint Paul Lutheran School has a rich history serving the families in our community since 1913. Families are drawn to the school because of its excellence, and stay for its loving, safe, nurturing environment- a family feeling which has caused new generations of the same families to return to Saint Paul with their children. Building relationships, within the classroom, school, and community, has been a priority, along with providing a place of academic distinction. Service to others is taught and practiced, within and outside of school walls, as an integral part of the development of each child.

The school embraces a philosophy of education which seeks to target the gifts of each child at every grade level. Saint Paul Lutheran School is committed to providing an enriching learning experience which addresses the variety of learning styles in our students. Opportunities to experiment and to grow are offered to students AND teachers, so that all are engaged in the excitement of discovery, learning, and collaboration.

Throughout the grade levels, Saint Paul employs specialists in several areas including art, music, foreign language, computer, library, early childhood, and special education resource. Saint Paul offers a number of voluntary extra-curricular opportunities to enrich life experience beyond the classroom including a full complement of sports, teams, clubs, and organizations to develop God-given gifts. Providing rich experiences with a fine arts festival, reading nights, school plays and musicals, early childhood events, and outreach activities bolsters our relationships with students, families, and the community.
