St. Paul Catholic School offers every child a comprehensive religious and academic education based upon a core set of values and virtues including kindness, courage, forgiveness, hope, acceptance, respect, thankfulness, and unity. Our elementary school serves the needs of all children from Preschool through the 8th Grade and is divided into four levels: Preschool, Primary (K-2), Intermediate (3,4,5), and Middle School (6,7,8).
Each student will receive a report card at the end of each grading period (we are on a trimester system) giving the grades for each subject in the curriculum.
The education of our children is a joint responsibility of both parent and teacher, who must coordinate their efforts so that the necessary cooperation and understanding are expended in the student’s development. To this end, teacher-parent conferences are scheduled at the end of the first and second report-card periods to review the progress of the student, and to answer any questions there might be about the class curriculum in general.
A formal testing program is set up by the diocese, and takes place during the month of September. A set of achievement tests are administered to grades 3 through 8. Achievement tests are not used to determine grades for report cards; they are used primarily as guides for the teachers and school. The results of the tests will be discussed on an individual student basis with the parents at the Parent-Teacher Conference scheduled at the end of the first grading period. It is diocesan policy that the overall school results in these achievement tests are not published nor discussed in detail.
