General School Mission

"St. Paul's School is a Christian pre school dedicated to facilitating children's growth in a developmentally appropriate environment. To accomplish this mission, St. Paul's School sets its goals to help children grow:

Intellectually by providing academically appropriate learning experiences that develop listening skills, following directions, the ability to focus and stay on task.

Socially by encouraging communication skills and positive interaction between peers and adults. Emotionally by encouraging skills to develop positive self esteem and self confidence.

Physically by providing activities that promote large and small muscle development.

Spiritual growth by introducing biblical truths through bible stories that encourage the love of God.
