    St. Paul School is a wonderful school for both our children and family. You won't find more top-notch teachers who strive to develop good loving children and educate them to excel in life. Check out the website at or on Facebook at Saint Paul School Wellesley. Come to one its periodic Open Houses. It will be worth your time and effort!

    St Paul School is a wonderful setting for both educational and spiritual growth. The environment is warm and welcoming. My daughter loves going to school! The small sized classroom and parent-involvement are two aspects that I appreciate. Each morning after the prayer and pledge of allegiance the children sing a few patriotic songs. It is a joyful way to start the morning! The teachers and staff are very nurturing to the students of all grades. As a parent of two children who previously attended public school I can honestly say that this educational experience is incomparable in all aspects. We are very pleased!!

    My boys enjoyed the school but they were far behind in Math comparing to a good public school. There are no sports team and gym class only once a week. My kids built strong moral foundation during their early years. Submitted by a parent

    My two children started attending the school this fall and thus far I have been impressed by both the quality of the curriculum the teachers as well as the great learning environment (for example the use of a high tech interactive black board in my son's classroom). We were searching for a school that would provide a solid catholic education in a friendly and nurturing environment near Natick where we live and are glad we found this school.

    I've had two daughters at St. Paul from 2009 onwards and I'm very pleased with the school. We transferred my older daughter there because it gave her an education rooted in faith a small and loving community and strong academics. My younger daughter (now in 4th grade) absolutely loves it. We enjoy the community of parents who are so welcoming especially to newcomers.

    As a parent St. Paul School has far exceeded my expectations. In addition to excellent academics it has a warm nurturing community where students truly feel cared for by their teachers and the overall community. I couldn't be happier with the school and the new principal.

    St. Paul's is an excellent school. The teachers are excellent and the cirriculum is strong. The students consistently place in the top brackets for standardized testing. I chose this school for my children so that they would get a strong moral foundation during their early years. I feel that this is the time when it is most important to instill these values in children. I believe it has really helped to connect my children to their faith. There are many opportunities to volunteer and the familiies tend to be very involved.

    It's 2009 I deeply regret sending my kids to St Paul for over 4 years. They enjoyed the school while they attended but when we moved and I switched them back to a good public school in our area they were all behind especially in Math. The middile school is really small (about 10-15 kids per grade) and the students have the same core subject teachers for all three years. The school seems sleepy. This is often socially hard for the students. Principal seems bored by her job and in my opinion should retire. New energy is needed. Nice community of parents but my experience proved the education was mediocre and curriculum outdated.

    We moved our children to this school in 2008 after an awful experience at an area Catholic school. WOW! We wish we would have started out here! The teachers are fantastic always go the extra mile for their students. Kids are not expected to be perfect and they thrive in the environment. The curriculum is strong without being too rigid. It is a great school!

    I transferred my child to St. Paul in September 2007. After three abysmal years at another local parochial school we finally found a school for her and every child. The administration is top rate and responds to the cares and concerns of parents quickly and effectively. The teachers treat students with respect and admiration and are committed to teaching every child - not just the 'bright' ones. This is old fashioned Catholic school at its best. Children are taught the fundamentals (along with many extras) and they are taught values and morals as well. The academics are advanced for the area so the kids go on to great high schools and colleges. The families at the school are welcoming and friendly. Our first year ended too soon and we cannot wait for September. If my child could be inspired anyone's could.

    As a current Junior English Education major at Ithaca College I feel strongly that the education I received from first until eighth grade at St. Paul School provided me with the solid educational background necessary to succeed both in high school and in college. It is with great pride that I attribute my future career as a teacher at least partially to my experience at St. Paul's School. The school's sensitivity to morals high standards in education attention on the individual as well as its close community atmosphere all contribute to a truly successful institution.

    I am a graduate of St. Paul's School. I can say unequivocally that the education that I received provided a solid foundation for me as I furthered my educational and career endeavors. Academically spiritually socially the school prepared me for in the best ways possible for my future. I am truly grateful for all that I learned there and for the lasting skills friendships and memories. As I understand from former classmates whose children currently attend or have attended St. Paul's the school has moved forward with the times yet continues its tradition of academic excellence. I would recommend St. Paul's to anyone who is seeking a solid academic and spiritual education for their child in an environment that is nurturing individualistic and forward thinking. Congratulations to St. Paul's for 50 years of providing opportunities for success in academics and life to the children of Wellesley and in my case of Boston.
