Each day is a precious gift
And being a part of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School is a blessing for students and staff. In the classroom, at recess, in worship, and on field trips, St. Paul’s teachers see each child as a special gift from God.
St. Paul’s Lutheran School is dedicated to providing students with a quality education in an environment where Christian faith is taught, learned, and lived.
St. Paul’s preschool education follows the Creative Curriculum and the Iowa Quality Preschool Program Standards. Student goals center on emotional, language, social, cognitive, and physical development.
Classes are offered in five arrangements to meet the various needs of children ages 3-5.
St. Paul’s has a long history of academic success. Students are nurtured by high quality teachers and talented support staff, and receive tremendous church and family support.
We use the Iowa Core and faith-based curricula, as we believe faith and learning go hand in hand.
St. Paul’s Lutheran School is the only elementary school in Iowa affiliated with the ELCA.
As a fully accredited school, we offer programs similar to public schools with the addition of faith-based curriculum.
We stand apart from other schools by offering Spanish in all grades, art in kindergarten, and extended field trips.
The development of faith is integral to St. Paul’s education.
Each classroom has daily devotions and prayer.
Classes have unique curricula to guide their faith development. Although we are affiliated with the ELCA, our curriculum is not denominational.
Student develop leadership skills in many ways.
Students lead weekly Thursday morning worship, providing experience in public speaking and collaborative planning.
