We have been a part of the Prince of Peace family for over 9 years. The curriculum is strong and gets the students ready for high school.They have done an excellent job of providing differentiation and challenge for my math / science focused child. The staff have also always shown interest in her activities and development as a person. This little power house of a school is a close knit community. Plus the new community life center addition adds fantastic gym space, new library and computer center. I would recommend Prince of Peace without a moment''s hesitation.
