Since 1949, Our Lady Queen of Peace School has served the community as a Madison Diocesan Parish School.
The school has grown in size and enrollment presently educating approximately 500 children from 4-year old kindergarten through eighth grade.
Working together in a Christ-like manner, students, teachers, and parents encourage the search for knowledge and an appreciation of each person’s capabilities and differences in a caring Catholic environment.
The faculty of Our Lady Queen of Peace School believes that children are a gift of God, given to us temporarily to love and to teach. They are intrinsically good, eager to learn, and have unique talents.  School, as an extension of the home, should provide positive experiences that stimulate and motivate each child to achieve his or her full potential in an atmosphere of security, faith development, academic excitement and social interaction.
