St. Peterís Elementary School was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1878. Since its foundation, St. Peterís continues to serve all economic levels of the community. Through our partnership with parents, who we recognize as the primary educators of their children, we provide a strong Catholic education. We strive to deepen each childís understanding of the life of Christ through worship, example, and by providing opportunities for them to practice their Catholic faith. It is expected that upon graduation all students will exhibit not only an understanding of their Catholic identity, but also an ability to put this understanding into practice. St. Peterís School is a vital part of the parish, a predominantly Latino community in San Franciscoís Mission District. Following Christís example to reach out to all people, St. Peterís School is committed to educating children in their Catholic faith throughout our curriculum. The priests, administrators, teachers and staff strive to support the parents in their role as primary educators of their children. In this faith partnership, we worship and inculcate the values of Jesus into all of our endeavors together. schoolís purpose is to proclaim Christís message of salvation as the basis for a viable Catholic community.
