Prince of Peace was a great place to grow up. I was there for almost my entire school life, and can honestly say that the environment was extremely positive for both me and my faith with Christ. In middle school we would go to the food pantry and go on amazing class trips each year. In high school we went on awesome retreats that really set the tone for the rest of the school year. Of course it had it's ups and downs, but all in all, Prince of Peace is an extremely good school. Every single faculty member cares about the students and their well being, and it makes it very hard to fail! I personally had several teachers check up on me throughout my high school career, just to make sure I wouldn't fall behind. It's the perfect balance of preparing you for life, without holding your hand the entire way. Prince of Peace truly helped me soar like an eagle; helped me spread my wings and fly. I appreciate everything Mr. Hahn, Mr. Stark, and Dr. Lowe did to make the school a safe, inspiring, and encouraging place to get my high school diploma. The atmosphere of the school is truly indescribable; even the parents are all extremely involved in the school, making it a very unique high school experience. I would like to thank everyone who made my high school experience possible - it was definitely worth every penny. My hope is that the school continues to grow and benefit hundreds of more kids as they grow into adulthood! THANK YOU, PRINCE OF PEACE.
