Academics

Posted on

Have you ever wondered how St. Paul’s Lutheran School does academically? Recently, we averaged the students’ standardized test scores to see how well they performed long term. Our scores indicate that the average third grade student tested as well as the average fifth grade student when compared to the nation. Furthermore, our test results show that as students continue their education at St. Paul’s Lutheran, their achievement becomes amazing.   Many of our eighth grade students receive scores comparable to the average high school senior taking the test.

St. Paul’s Lutheran School strives to insure that students are academically prepared for their future. We do this by providing strong, intelligent and caring teachers, a progressive learning environment, and a broad-based curriculum appropriate for our changing world. We are proud of our reputation for strong academics at St. Paul’s Lutheran School and we are pleased with the work and commitment of our teachers and students.
