I am new to the gainesville area and noticed that St Paul's school in Haymarket offers a Kindergarten program. I was wondering if anyone had any feedback on this program or school.
Thanks!

Oh Yeah, anyone who has been around the last ten years knows of St,Paul's phenomenal reputation of producing great readers. Kindergarten kids can read at second and third grade level. Their first graders read at third to fifth grade levels. You can contact me and I can put you in touch with my sister-in-law who had a great experience there.

Jenny you are right. It is amazing how a child can enter the preschool with little more than alphabet knowledge and become a reader in seemingly not time at all. We are so fortunate to have our grandchild in that school.

I am hearing many favorable comments on St. Paul's Preschool. What does anyone know about their first grade? I need to get my child out of public school. He is in the gifted and talented program but unfortunately is only challenged for one hour a day. He has 26 other kids in his class so obviously he is not getting any special attention.

Jenny, I just now read your comment about first graders reading at third to fifth grade level. Thank you. I would like to know more about their math instruction.

I hear the first and second grade content is accelerated as a direct result of a low teacher/student ratio. My neighbor brags about how great her daughter is doing in first grade at St. Paul's School. We have a third grader and we are seriously considering putting her in St. Paul's fourth grade fall 2010. We hear only great things about this school. Good luck!

We are new to the area but we had heard of St. Paul's School before moving here. My neighbor has tried to get into St. Paul's in the past and was waitlisted, but we both ahve 2-yr olds and heard about their 2-year old program. We got in and now we both get to register first for the Fall. What a coup! She also gets to register her 2nd grader before others only because she has a 2-year old in the program and current families register first! Hope this info helps all those who are trying to get into St. Paul's.
Good luck.

Everything we hear is very good. We are hoping to get our daughter into the 2nd grade program. If we get in, will post our experience.

Thanks for the information! We are trying to get our daughter into the 2nd grade class at St. Paul's. Four months into the GT progam at her elementary school and we are not happy. The low teacher/student ratio sounds great. We looked at Linton Hall, but the teacher/student ratio is as high as it is in public school.

We heard about their kindergarten program too. We called last week and learned it was full. We are not sure whether to get on their waiting list or go ahead with public school. We are anxious as we have not heard a lot of good about the public school near our new home in Haymarket. Anyone else know of other Christian or private kindergarten programs? We learned that there is room for our daughter in their threes program, but we would prefer both of our girls in the same school.
