Every child learns differently, and at The de Paul School, we teach for that. Our mission is simple, yet powerful:
The de Paul School teaches students with learning differences how to learn, how to be independent and how to be successful.

Meet The Huskies

The de Paul School is a collaborative of educators, leaders and staff who believe that there is no other way to dignify a child more than to help him or her understand what they are truly capable of. We want each child to know and believe they are capable of scholastic and life success: as long as they work hard, set goals and aspire to reach them. The de Paul School gives our students the tools and strategies to achieve all they aspire to do.

The following beliefs are the foundation of all that we do:

  • We believe that learning is living.
  • We believe in the individuality and dignity of our students.
  • We believe in the incredible potential of our students.
  • We believe our role as educators is to empower our students.
  • We believe that our students need an educational program with specific features in order to reach their potential.
  • We believe in the duty and demand of our profession.
  • We believe the support of family is crucial to education.
  • We believe that each person has the responsibility to build and better our community.

Like the students in our school, huskies are intelligent and eager. They love to play, work well in teams, and enjoy companionship. Huskies are reliable and their friends can count on unsurpassed loyalty. They are known for their endurance, and perseverance in harsh conditions that might tempt others to quit. Interestingly, it has been reported that huskies are easily bored if activities are not sufficiently challenging or engaging.

We are proud to be the huskies. We impress in the classroom, in athletic competition, and as compassionate citizens within the larger community.

Trustees

The Board of Trustees is the guardian of The de Paul School's mission. Our Board ensures that our mission is relevant and vital to the community we serve. While our Board is certainly interested in the day-to-day successes of our students, teachers, and programs, its primary focus is on the longer-term and strategic. Our Board is an incredibly active, dedicated, and personally invested trusteeship - we are grateful to our trustees for their service!
