    St Peters school is not just a school it is a place where students and parents can call their second home. The family atmosphere only enchances the great teachers staff and with a loving and caring principal and supportive pastor ANY family would find St Peters a place that will provide a well rounded education and instill morals in your child that will last forever.

    My 4 yr. twins attend pre-k there and absolutely love it! The teachers and staff are very nice and if you have a question they quickly return phone calls and are very professional.

    St Peters School is wonderful. They offer high level math and science courses offer french to 1st-4th gr. and spanish for 5th-8th. The mothers' club gets all of the mothers together and helps with fundraising. There is a school play an art club student council computer classes music band and of course we celebrate mass together every 1st friday. The principal and pastor are very helpful and always available for any concerns. My children love the school their classmates and the faculty and so will yours.
