St. Peter Tri-Parish School provides its students with a quality Catholic education in an atmosphere of mutual respect that fosters spiritual, academic and social growth.
Our philosophy of education emphasizes the significance of each individual's contribution to the Christian community and to society.
We recognize that, because emotional, social and physical characteristics influence the development of cognitive skills, we must provide for the diverse backgrounds of the students as well as for variation in learning styles.
Experiences to strengthen the recognition of similarities among people and to foster each student's development of a Catholic identity provide for effective Christian involvement in a multi-cultural society.
Commensurate with individual interests and abilities, each student can achieve an understanding of those concepts and skills that assure the fulfillment of the goals of our mission.

It is the last year for my daughter at St. Peter School. We will be so sad to leave. The experience has been wonderful. She has been accepted to two top private schools for high school (we only applied to two). I highly recommend this school.
