St. Paul is a Google G Suite school and has 1:1 technology access for all students. St. Paul has a fully networked computer lab with 23 workstations with wide screen monitors. All grades have regular scheduled technology classes in the computer lab where students work with cloud applications as well as business applications. Students in grades K-3 have 1:1 iPad access.
