Father Charles Klinger, our pastor since 2003, with the assistance of several parish priests, is actively involved in the lives of our students, providing opportunities to attend liturgy on a regular basis and making themselves available for classroom instruction. Students and families regularly engage in community service projects as extensions of grade-level reflections and studies. Area community organizations benefiting from St. Paul student service projects include St. Paul Parish senior citizens, the Manor Care Nursing Home, Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs, St. Lawrence Haven lunch program, Holy Rosary St. John and the Westerville Area Resource Ministry.

Each St. Paul School student is a valued person with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.

Our principal, Dr. Kathleen Norris, and our assistant principal, Mr. Faustin Weber, oversee an academic team of 37 fully accredited teaching professionals, committed to providing our community of more than 860 young learners a superior academic experience. Complementing classroom instruction is a dedicated group of 16 paraprofessionals and 8 Westerville City School auxiliary personnel, who serve St. Paul School as school nurse, guidance counselor, psychologists, reading tutors, speech pathologist, and special needs intervention specialist. An after-school care program provides a safe and happy environment after school hours for children in grades kindergarten through 6.

St. Paul School provides direction in helping students become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.

In addition to classroom experiences in Art, Music, Technology, Library and Physical Education, interested students have opportunities to participate in Power of the Pen, Science Fair, the newspaper staff, band, choir, a comprehensive Diocesan athletic program, and scouting. Every student in grades 3 through 8 complete the Terra Nova Test, used to track student progress, to evaluate and assess instructional content areas, and to ultimately improve studentsí future academic performance. By nearly any measure, St. Paul School students annually outperform local and national test averages. The majority of our graduates attend Catholic high schools, including St. Francis DeSales and St. Charles Preparatory.

St. Paul School promotes a safe, healthy, respectful and positive environment.

Founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in 1961, the school has witnessed several expansions, including the addition of new classrooms, a fully-equipped science lab, and a recently-constructed second gymnasium.Students, staff and teachers have Internet and network access to a wireless school campus that supports a Chromebook 1:1 take-home program for grades 5-8, Chromebook 1:1 cart program in grades 2-4, a 36-station computer lab and interactive white boards in grades K-5 and Clevertouch interactive flat panels in grades 6-8 to enhance instructional and individual learning opportunities.

Freshly prepared and nutritionally sound lunches are prepared daily in our full-service cafeteria.

Teachers, administrators, parents, and students share the responsibility for student learning and for advancing the mission of St. Paul School.

Dedicated parents, with the support of the faculty and staff, are actively engaged in the education of our K - 8 community of children through their volunteer efforts in various advisory and staff-support roles.
