School Notes

  • Prince of Peace is a school of faith and learning.  Our students study their faith in the classroom, live a life of daily prayer, practice and model goodness and integrity, and are valued as members of a spiritual family.  We offer a solid curriculum to form the mind for the challenges of later learning.  Students study Singapore Math, daily math practice and review, reading with phonics-based Superkids, writing skills K to 8, and get involvoed in the arts (fine arts, drama, music and especially the tradition of sacred music).

Prince of Peace is truly an extension of our home and family for our children! The love and support that the teachers, staff and priests provide cannot be reproduced anywhere! The academics provided are so rich and all encompassing - but it is the extras like the establishment of Catholic / Christian values, love of neighbor, development of character that make this school so extra special! I highly recommend joining this family and enriching your children with an education that cannot be replicated in any other environment!

We cannot recommend Prince of Peace enough! It is an ideal place to send a child so that they can be educated body, mind, and soul! In addition to having very strong academics (Blue Ribbon School) the school is devoted to raising virtuous children that love Christ and neighbor! The teachers there are amazing and see their role as a vocation and not a job. We cannot imagine sending our children anywhere else!

We absolutely love Prince of Peace. This is our third year at the school and our children are thriving. The pastor, teachers, staff, and other families are so friendly and welcoming. We feel a great sense of community at the school, an attribute that is important to us. The teachers are top notch and truly care about the well being of each child. The education the kids receive is unparalleled. We are very happy with our school and look forward to many years within the Prince of Peace community.
