Message from the Head of School
Welcome to Saint Paul’s - Clearwater’s Independent School,
To our proud history, to our beautiful campus, to the strength of the K-8 model, and to our philosophy of teaching and learning…
Saint Paul’s School has been proudly educating leaders in the Clearwater community for 50 years. The intention of its founders was to combine superior academics with Episcopal values of respect, honesty, integrity, and inclusiveness. The result is a community that welcomes and celebrates families with a range of ethnicities and religions, who value the sanctity of childhood, the bond between a student and a teacher, the challenge of academic excellence and the network of Saint Paul’s families that lasts a lifetime.
We invite you to tour our 12-acre waterfront campus where our students are engaged in “the work” of learning under the guidance of exceptional teachers with whom they have a meaningful relationship. At Saint Paul’s, we encourage our teachers to be experts at their craft, to participate in national organizations and to practice new methodologies, knowing they teach more than their subject areas. Our teachers are modeling 21st century skills like teamwork, time management, strategic thought, collaboration and leadership for their students every day.
The recipe works. Graduates of Saint Paul’s are accepted into the high schools and colleges of their choice, poised to excel in the classroom, on the field and on the stage. Currently our alumni are leading major corporations, creating new biofuels, producing network TV series, touring with country music stars, creating new products and practicing law and medicine throughout the United States. Despite their demanding schedules, they stay connected and committed to the Saint Paul’s community.
On behalf of everyone here, I thank you for your interest in learning more about Clearwater’s only Independent School.
With gratitude for a job I love,
Head of School
