kindergarten - 5th grade christian school

The St. Paul Lutheran Church and School community has dedicated our private Christian elementary school to providing students with a meaningful and comprehensive education that will give them a future filled with opportunity. We desire that our students are given opportunities to find their individual interests in a learning-rich environment.  

St. Paul creates an ideal learning environment where the whole child is valued and challenged. We provide an interactive learning environment, a rich and challenging curriculum, creative outlets, and a genuine awareness of the world around us. And we make caring for, encouraging, and valuing our students a priority.  With a student-to-teacher ratio of around 14:1, each day both children and teachers are encouraged to reach beyond their own potential while fostering Christian values and a love of learning.

Excellence in education

St. Paul meets or exceeds grade level standards and students have very high test scores. With small class sizes, St. Paul is able to develop an academically well-rounded student with activities such as art, music, Spanish, and P.E. In addition, weekly volunteers work one-on-one with students which greatly helps to meet students' needs as well as contributing to high test scores.

St. Paul educators are committed to encouraging and building up students. They do a great job helping students rise up to their expectations. The teachers also work hard to incorporate the religion curriculum in a way that students can apply it to their lives.

All of our elementary classroom teachers have a current Oregon Teaching Certificate issued by the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC).

spiritual growth

At St. Paul Lutheran Church and School, we believe that a meaningful education includes an understanding and appreciation of God, His purpose, His character, and His abundant love. Children grow in their faith and knowledge of God as they learn of His love through Bible stories. Children learn to build friendships based on Christ-like kindness, respect, and forgiveness.

Our staff recognizes that they are here to nurture each child's spiritual growth as it is integrated in all other aspects of learning. The Christian faith is implemented in all facets of the educational process. Through the process of education and faith, it is our intent to bring the child into a loving relationship with our Savior, a sharing relationship with peers, and a caring relationship with the community and world
