Religion is taught every day Kindergarten through 8th grade. On Friday we have an all school Mass in which students participate as lectors and altar servers as well as other roles in the Liturgy.
We are extremely proud of our students’ academic performance. Each fall St. Paul students take the Iowa Assessments (formerly the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills), and our children do a wonderful job! Below is our 8th grade, Class of 2012's test history from 3rd through 8th grade. The average National Grade Equivalency is represented in the graph. We are very proud of our students' achievement.
St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School curriculum includes Common Core English Language Arts, Math and Science. We also have adopted the Iowa Core Social Studies and 21st Century Skills.
