    St. Paul's Lutheran School in Garden Grove is so great for many reasons. My favorite thing about St. Paul's is the staff. There is a great family feel and I am confident when I drop my student off in the morning that I am leaving her with people that love and care about her. Another great thing about St. Paul's is that they offer much smaller class sizes than public schools. My child gets a lot of individual attention which enables her to excel at academics. While St. Paul's might not have the biggest campus I feel like they do a good job of using the space they have to the fullest. Additionally they have some fabulous extracurricular activities. They give the children an opportunity to try sports music dance and drama. St. Paul's Lutheran in Garden Grove is a great little school that offers huge benefits!

    Invested in their kids. The school and the teachers really care about the overall development of each child. They make special arrangements to keep each child challenged.

    My older son graduated from this school and now his brother is in 2nd grade. This school has a wonderful church program for the kids. I am pleased with the school curriculum i.e. class participation and discipline. By volunteering in the school activities I learned that teachers shared their knowlege through their personnal research for their class lessons.

    I sent my oldest son to this school since he was 3 1/2 until 5th grade. The teachers and the staffs are really nice and very helpful when we have any questions or concerns. My son was on top of the class since K until he finished his 5th grade. St. Paul is not only teaching him the knowledge but also discipline the behavior in students. He is now enrolling in Public school but he still maintains his high GPA. There isn't any barriers for a student from private school entering into public school. I believe St. Paul Lutheran School has helped building good foundation in him. The reasons we have to sent he to public school is due to our family financial. However the tuition price is very affordable and it is still consider cheapest comparing to other private schools around that areas. We're now sending our little daughter to St. Paul and hoping that we can still afford and support her until she finishes it. I suggest other parents who do not have any problem with financial but want their children to obtain good knowledge and good discipline do not hesitate by sending their children to St. Paul Lutheran School. If we have another child St. Paul is still our number one choice.

    I have seen first hand how the teachers interact with the students. It is beautiful to see teachers that really care and it is not just a paycheck for them. I love that my children come home everyday and tell me what they learned; they share with us about God and how they love him. We are blessed to find a great school. Thank you St. Paul's Lutheran School

    Our school is fabulous. My son has attended this school for 8 years. He has been taught good manners a strong faith in God and excellent academics. The teachers take a special interest in him and in his progress. He has learned a lot through the music program as well.

    My older son is 12 years old and has been attending St. Paul's since he was in preschool at age 4. He started 7th grade this year. The school was rebuilt just over 10 years ago and it is absolutely beautiful. I have my child in this school for his christian education first but it comes with so many other benefits. Teachers that make themselves available to you at all times. Staff that is caring and loving from office to daycare. After school sport programs in 5th grade. They offer band and choir programs. Lockers for 4-8th graders. Middle school starts in 6th grade and the students rotate between 3 teachers so they will have a feel of the high school atmosphere. They offer "preparing for a degree" a program focused on challenging your child and improving their study skills. My younger son just turned 3 and started a 3 half days p/week program in their preschool. He is struggling with potty training but they did not turn him away. He enjoys school so much he asks me why he doesn't get to go every day. The staff is new I believe their second year with the school but they have been very loving to him and he feels very comfortable there.

    Wonderful school! The teachers and staff really love and care for the children here. I always feel welcome when I come to the school. I know my child is safe when I drop her off in the morning. Great after school program as well.

    I took my son out of our public school because his ADD combined with a teacher already overwhelmed by 36 kids in her class was lowering his self-esteem. After two weeks in Mrs. Pinkerton's 5th grade class my son has self-confidence about completing his work! She is willing and able to give him the extra attention he needed and we are so grateful!

    St.Paul's is a fantastic school! I have attended the school since pre-k and I have attended the church since I was born.The staff is a close group of friends who work together to teach excellent lessons. The middle schoolers are very involved in helping little kids learn. This school is an excellent school with amazing teachers and very good classes.

    St. Paul's is a wonderful school! I teach in a public school and wouldn't think of sending my children anywhere else. My children are excited to go to school excited to learn and are truely prepared not only for their high school education but beyond. St. Paul's caring staff and atmosphere feel like an extended family who are there to guide and nuture our children. Thank you St. Paul's of Garden Grove!

    St. pauls' was a true blessing to my family. My children came from public school and made the transition very well to private school. We were all made to feel welcome and part of their family. They moved on to high school and were very prepared to take on a high academic high school. The warm family atmosphere was a plus for our family. We feel blessed to be a part of St. Paul's

    This school is very clean safe and everyone in the staff is very nice. But the academic are so low preschool class was pretty much like day care not so much of learning. I love the school and the staff too but I want my children to be up with standard of academic.

    My child attended local public schools for many years and was becoming bored which led to trouble-making. After just a few months at St. Paul's he has made a great group of new friends and turned his academic failures into successes. He was challenged mentally and spiritually. St. Paul's has worked wonders in my child's life and I can't thank the staff enough.

    This school is very clean safe and everyone in the staff is very nice. But I don't think they challenge the students at all. They do a lot of worksheets and art that don't reflect how the students are learning. I love the school and the staff but I need more than that. I want my children to be challenged.
