    My three children attend SPS and I couldn't be happier. We moved here this year and they have been easily accepted in all areas and feel as though they have been there for a long time. I am so impressed with the academics from pre-k to 2nd grade my kids are thriving. I couldn't ask for better teachers and an incredible principal. Most of all I love how safe and nurturing the school is. I love that I am welcomed to be a part of the school and can go in and help for lunch duty or to read a story. It's a great community and we have not looked back!

    St. Paul's school is a very special place. My spouse and I simply could not be happier with our decision to send our three children there. Our children have been able to thrive in many different ways due to the positive and nurturing environment that it's dedicated teachers administration and staff provide. The faculty is great and really encourage their students to achieve both academic excellence AND social responsibility which is really something special to see in our children. The community is an active one that provides a tremendous amount of caring support for its students teachers staff parents and alumni. My spouse and I have been involved in education for over 15 years and we were first introduced to this school by the unsolicited feedback we received from two directors of admissions at very prestigious High Schools in the area who said that "the best kids they get year after year are St. Paul's kids." We have been at the school for three years now and have seen first hand why they would have that opinion! From top to bottom St. Paul's is truly a gift for us and our children!

    My grand daughter is a student in the primary grades at St Paul's school in Hingham Massachusetts. St Paul's provides the total package 1. An environment that fosters a strong educational component equal to the best schools if not above. As a former educator I can attest to the challenging curriculum that is provided. 2. Well qualified caring and committed staff that are focused on the total development of the child. Student teacher ratio is great. This allows for active student participation in class. 3. A school environment that fosters respect for self and others. 4.A school that is built around parent evolvement and communication between all parties involved in the education of the child. St Paul's has been a wonderful experience for my grand daughter. I would highly recommend St Paul's. Submitted by a Grandmother.

    I have four kids that attend St. Paul's and they love it!(I went there as well!) Besides the academics the school environment is all about manner being kind and respectful of others. The classes are a great size and the teachers are great. I would highly recommend this school. You not only get a great school but a great family with it!

    I have really loved attending SPS. I have made lifelong friends and have learned what is really important in life in addition to great academics. We are expected to be kind to one another be respectful of teachers and other classmates and always do our best. Our family is really involved and I know how important that is to my parents. I feel like I can go anywhere to high school and do well and be a leader because of what I have experienced here

    This school has been a wonderful experience for our son as we moved from PA to MA during the beginning of 7th grade. He was immediately accepted by both students and faculty and has grown and prospered with being part of the St. Paul school community. Highly recommend this to anyone thinking of living in the south shore area.

    St. Paul School is a very special place that has been wonderful for my child. We are beyond thrilled with the school. The academics are excellent the teachers have been wonderful and my child is excited to go to school each day. The family community within the school is very active and supportive and the new principal and pastor are strong leaders. I would highly recommend this school.

    St. Pauls is a perfect match for my daugter. She is excelling in school in all of her subjects. She enjoys art and at second grade is already writing poems on her self made cards. She shares the moral values that she learns to reach out to others who are need help to be kind to all people that God made us all equal. The small family community builds her confidence and trust in others. Volunteering lunch duty and fund raising events brings parents closer and more familiar with each other . Working together with other parents to teach children how to love share and help others adds hope joy and love. Having a faith community helps us prioritize on the values of life to know we have a higher power to guide us and to check ourselves often and try to be better human beings. St Pauls is helping to mold my daugter to have a heart for others to love God and herself to gain confidence and respect for herself and those around her. It is always individual but for this family having loving people around her teaching her in a moral way is what is working for us.

    This is our 3rd year at Saint Paul's School and we are so happy to be here. We moved here because Hingham public schools are among the best in MA. SPS is keeping up with HPS & excelling at what is most important giving our children an engaging faith & community based education. My daughters have gained so much confidence and are so happy here. They have made wonderful friends are learning Spanish in elementary school and are involved in before school choir and afterschool art. The new administration and new priest have improved communication and standards dramatically and we are thrilled to be here!!

    I attended this school. The best decision of my young life was when I decided to leave this school and nurture myself in the Hingham Public School System where I found myself and who I wanted to be not some creation by robotic teachers monotonously teaching outdated lessons and ideals.

    Saint Paul's offers strong academics and provides a close community atmosphere. The teachers and the principal work closely with the parents to teach children confidence pride and how to be strong members of the community. I have 3 boys that have gone through the school and can't say enough about their experiences there.
