    I went to St Peters from 1st grade to 8th grade. I graduated in 1994. St Peters is an excellent school. I ended up graduating from an ivy league university and credit my foundation from St Peters. I now have my own business. Its a small school and the students really get indivdual attention. It pays off!

    I am a student at St. Peter's and I love my school because the students are so nice and we get to use computers all the time! I think you should give St. Peter's a chance!

    Fort Wayne is lucky to have such an amazing parochial school system. St. Peter's truly contributes to the excellence in education. I have 3 children at St. Pete's now. The curriculum is tough I'll admit but I really feel like my kids will be able to compete at the next level once they get to high school. The faculty is experienced and devoted to the students. Parental involvement is highly encouraged but not mandatory. This school really encourages a family-like atmosphere. Want to be involved? There is always a spot for you to help! Be prepared for serious homework once your child hits 2nd or 3rd grade.

    I have three children at St. Peter's. The education they recieve is excellent! The special attention my children recieve is beyond compare. The teacher's for the most part are very loving caring and practice forgiveness in the classroom. With the cost of tuition rising steadily here every year I am afraid they will be pricing some families out the door to lower tuition Lutheran schools or public schools.

    The choice to go to St Peter's was the best decisions we made for our children. The teachers at our school have given more of themselves than just coming to a job! A wonderful school!

    St.Peters really cares about its students. The children learn beyond the scope of what I have expected. Though they have way too much homework! Parents are also expected to take interest in all aspects of schooling and that has been a good practice for our family!
