Very old-fashioned school hard to work with. They are always right you are always wrong. No one listens.

The leadership commanded by Mrs. Maureen Ingham is questionable at best. From the teacher morale to the overall environment of the school it is one of negativity. From my children's responses coming home from school they were often of concern to me. The reaction of leadership to incidences and disciplinary action taken or lack thereof enforced inconsistent disciplinary policies. Over 2 years my children had to deal with unexplained departures of several faculty and staff. The reasons offered by leadership as to their departure were considered by my children to be untruthful. I believe that this is a direct result of poor leadership. I have found Mrs. Ingham to be unapproachable and unwilling to discuss or compromise issues I have brought forth. My children are not returning for the 2014-2015 school year and I would not recommend St. Peter's to any potential families.
Academically this is a good school. The long term faculty members (those who have been there for 3 or more years) are excellent to work with and are truly child centered. Our children have done well from that perspective. It is a very small school with small class sizes. This works well for individual attention. And for a private school in this area it is reasonably affordable. Those are what could be considered the plus factors to take into account.
My children have all attended St. Peter's in the elementary and middle school. There has been some changes in the past couple years however all for the greater good. We have an extraordinary Principal and administration to go with it. This leadership has guided our school to be a standout-academically and athletically. To top this all off we have a continuing faith base that embodies the staff and our children. This starts on the ground floor from the pre-k program right on up to our parent volunteers. Our parent volunteers live by the mantra "it's not about us it is all about the children." This allows us to continually move forward. The teacher to student ratio is idyllic for both self motivated students and students requiring assistance. St. Peter's has reinforced all that I as a parent have continually tried to instill in children. This reinforcement has allowed them to master "The Golden Rule." I highly recommend this school for families who are looking for the simple attributes which have been lost in today's society. Be nice Be kind and always Be grateful.
My children were there for two years in the middle school. The first year they attended was great. My oldest daughter went in to school with an attitude of "I don't care" and came out with the attitude of "I can do better than a 94". My youngest child was in the best possible place. This second year was a disaster. Academically it was good but as far as administration and parent involvement it was awful. The school secretary was curt to not only me but my husband and my child attending the school. And the principal who is a different principal from the last year was the same and showed disdain toward other parents. I would not enroll my children again.
My children have attended St. Peters since Pre-K and we have had such a positive experience that I cannot imagine sending my children anywhere else. All of the teachers are superb and seem to be there because they truly care about providing an excellent education for their students. My son and daughter love attending school each day and have excelled in their academics because they are being taught with love by teachers that want them to succeed. The school leadership both the Principal and Vice-Principal are involved with the children on a daily basis and really help mold the entire student body to be productive members of our community. While the school excels in State Testing that is not the schools focus but instead they seem to care about shaping the whole student. I'd encourage all parents of the Lewiston-Porter Community to look at St. Peters for their children.
This school combines excellence in academics in a truly faith-filled environment. Students are recognized for their accomplishments academically with quarterly awards that reflect not only their academic achievements but conduct and attitude as well. Also students and teachers can recognize each other at anytime for demonstration of Christian values. Academically the school offers several opportunities for the student who wants to learn both in the classroom and after school with choir Future City an annual Science Fair an advanced technology center from where students do the morning announcements on camera appearing on close circuit TV in each classroom. They've also incorporated a state-of-the-art science lab offering 8th grade Earth Science classes that will allow students to take the regents exam this spring. Our sports program is extensive with instructional basketball soccer track swim teams as well as JV and Varisty basketball and cheerleading starting in the 2nd grade.
