Westward ho — to my first visit, ever, to Kansas City. Here (on the Missouri side of the river), I would meet new head of school Andrew Myler at St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School.
St. Paul’s, founded in 1963, moved to its current campus in 1992. The school serves 473 students in early childhood through grade 8. Its mission is to help each student reach his or her highest academic, moral, social and creative potential by providing a comprehensive program of education in a loving, faith-based community. Our walk through the campus highlighted thematic curriculum, hands-on learning, and character development.
What aspect of St. Paul’s would Andrew Myler most like to highlight for his ISACS colleagues? Says he: We hope our graduates will be active learners, ethical leaders, and engaged citizens. To help us achieve our vision, we intentionally teach life skills, stress moral and ethical development, and emphasize service. As an Episcopal school, we start every morning with chapel meetings. Our daily meetings reflect the tremendous value we place on community and help our students learn concern for others
