Academics

Wonder how our students do academically?

We averaged Saint Paul’s students’ standardized test scores to show how well they performed over a period of years.

Student scores indicate that the average third grade student tested as well as the average fifth grade student when compared to the nation.

Additionally, our results show that as students continue their education at St. Paul’s, their achievement becomes even more amazing. Many Saint Paul’s eighth grade students receive scores comparable to the average high school senior taking the test.

Our staff 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.

For more than 150 years Saint Paul’s Lutheran School’s reputation for strong academics is proven. We are pleased with the achievements, work and commitment of our students, teachers and staff.
