    We love St Paul. The teachers principal and curriculum are fantastic! There is no better sense of community than at this school. Everyone truly cares bout everyone else.

    We have sent both of our children to St. Paul Catholic School and are glad we did! It has a wonderful feeling of family community and spirituality. Both of our children have excelled academically because of the guidance they were given by their teachers to become lifelong learners.

    This school is great with one exception. If your child is way above average they view that as a dicipline problem. They have no idea how to deal with children that don't fit into their safe little pigeon holes.

    My kids 11 and 7 have been at St. Paul's since kindergarten. The school is wonderful The test results speak for themselves. The Teachers really care about the kids and it has been great having them there. I am currently trying to decide whether to keep them in private school after 6th grade and I can tell you the public schools test results really scare me. I grew up in Public School in the South end of Louisville and I didn't feel that my education was any worse than those going to Trinity or St. X but the test results say different. Not sure what I will do yet.

    My children have always encountered nothing but love and understanding from the teachers and the administration. I would never dream of sending them somewhere else.

  • (10 years ago)

    I feel very blessed that my children (kindergarten and second grade) have the opportunity to attend a school where the teachers genuinely care for the educational and spiritual education and growth of each child. Our children need all the support and guidance in becoming prepared for the world we live in today. I feel confident they are receiving a strong moral foundation to aid them in their life's journey ahead.

    St. Paul School has provided my fifth grader with a solid foundation of basic skills in a nurturing safe and Christian environment. Teachers and staff are talented caring and creative educators.
