- School Founded in: 1952
- School is supported by: Franciscan Friars O.F.M.
- The philosophy of St. Paul School is twofold: first, to impart through instruction and example, the truths of the Christian faith as found in the Roman Catholic tradition; second, to provide an academic curriculum and learning environment that enables students to achieve their learning potential and become responsible individuals in our Church and society.
We believe the parents and caregivers are the primary educators and support them in this role.
We provide relevant learning experiences to help students become confident and competent individuals who live within their community with integrity and faith.
We recognize and celebrate the cultural diversity unique to our school, encouraging students to develop attitudes of mutual respect and understanding.
Although we teach and model what Jesus taught and how he wants us to live as Catholics, we welcome all Christian denominations, all faiths and all families who want values and goodness to be taught as part of the school curriculum.
