The St. Paul’s Way
St. Paul’s has an important philosophy, a certain mission, an individual style – we call it the St. Paul’s Way. Our school community knows exactly what it is. St. Paul’s children believe that to include everyone in their play is of the utmost importance. This is the St. Paul’s Way. Our children know that each day they will be challenged in the classroom, that they will learn by doing, and that they will be reaching for that higher level of learning. That too, is the St. Paul’s Way. The St. Paul’s Way is to look beyond the surface of a person and appreciate the diversity of each individual.
St. Paul’s parents believe that the St. Paul’s way is to provide academic excellence in an environment that is nurturing and abundant in opportunities to grow socially and spiritually. Our parents know their children will grow in the knowledge to embrace technology and sustain our culture while maintaining our natural resources. When faced with a peer conflict, St. Paul’s students will have learned the many possible ways to solve that conflict, and they will have practiced them with teacher and peer help.
We are a school which celebrates the individual while remembering that we are indeed a family. And as a family our middle school students are excellent role models for our lower school students. Each child takes care of his/her Panther Pal for the year. This, too, is our way.
Thank you for visiting our website. We have so much more to tell you about this school that we love. I hope your interest will lead you to personally discover the St. Paul’s Way. We would love to include you.Charleen Schwank
