My children have been at Prince of Peace Catholic School for 10 years now and we couldn't be happier. The school went through some rough times a few years back, though during that time still provided an excellent education with exemplary standards. The school is under new leadership now and is quickly realizing its potential. The leadership, teachers and parents give 110% and these children are truly blessed to be in this environment. We could not be getting a better foundation for our kids to prepare them for high school and beyond. This foundation is particular strong in faith and academics. I love it here and have loved watching my children grown in mind, body and spirit and can't wait to watch them use and develop the gifts throughout their lives that they have gained here at POP. We are also parishioners here and love the amazing community of families - it is truly our home.
