We balance our classrooms with group led, teacher led, and independent work keeping our students’ brains sharp and in charge of their learning.
Group discussion and collaboration skills are introduced in the early elementary years and help foster creativity, listening, and meaningful contribution skills.
Strong foundation of mathematics at the early childhood level challenges our students to build on concepts later while they are actively engaging new ideas.
Our athletic coaches are our teachers; strengthening our students bodies and minds in the classroom and on the court.
Teachers work hard to find the intersections between content and art helping students to see outside of the box and handle information with precision.
Our students continue to surpass their own goals. With such a small community at St. Paul students are able to take on personal academic projects without risking losing their teachers’ attention and guidance.
The middle school students are happy to help and serve around the school to fulfill their hours and give back to St. Paul. This requirement brings the Christ-like nature of serving others to the surface and gives middle schools students the practice they need to lead well when they arrive in their high-schools.
Split grade classrooms allows for students to think effectively within their community, to hear and rehear information, as well as participate in the learning of the students around them.
Students in grades 1-4 use iPads as part of the eSpark learning program. eSpark provides online academic support individualized to meet each child’s specific learning goals. Each student receives a rich curriculum of curated apps that are game-based, fun, and at their exact instructional level. We have seen improved academic outcomes in literacy and math as a result of using this adaptive technology. St. Paul Lutheran school is pleased to partner with Chicagoland Lutheran Educational Foundation again this year to bring eSpark into our classrooms.
