St. Paul – Woodburn Independent Article February 13, 2019


One area school pitched a perfect game: St. Paul, achieved a 100 percent graduation rate in 2017-18, up from just over 92 percent the previous two years and 89 percent in 2014-15. District officials go into each year expecting nothing less.


"Our goal in St Paul is to graduate 100-percent of our students each year," St. Paul Superintendent Joe Wehrli said. "Our middle and high-school staff does an excellent job of monitoring each student's progress closely as they work toward graduation, and they provide additional support as necessary to give each student the opportunity to be academically successful.


"The St Paul School Board continues to set high expectations of success for both academic excellence and active involvement in activities from our students," Wehrli added. "Their expectations are coupled with a willingness to find ways to fund the programs necessary to support student success."
