St Peter The Apostle School

Tel: (215)922-5958
Grades: PK-8 | 234 students
St. Peter the Apostle School exists to educate the student so that the talents developed and values nurtured will contribute not only to the child's personal growth and development, but also to the building of a strong and just society - a city of God.
We affirm that the parents are the primary educators and that teachers are partners in the total educational process.
The curriculum offered is an integration of intellectual, cultural, religious and physical activities planned with sensitivity to the background and needs of the students.
There is balance between the priorities of the group.
Coordination and cooperation with federal and state area specialists such as the Chapter 1 teachers and Act 89 reads personnel assigned to our school, is an integral facet of our total program.
We believe that increased emphasis on a world-wide vision and social responsibility should characterize the school's curriculum.
