My children have attended Prince of Peace since preschool and now are upper grade students and a proud graduate.The school gets better each year! The professional and caring Principal, teachers and staff are concerned with each child's education and go above and beyond to create a nurturing faith filled environment. Add to that dedicated parent volunteers and the beautiful new facility and it becomes an even better educational choice. My oldest, now a freshman in high school, has told us on several occasions how prepared for high school she was because of Prince of Peace. She is in all honors and AP classes and is able to succeed because of the strong foundation, she received at Prince of Peace. Prince of Peace prepared our daughter academically, socially and spiritually for her current and future success. So proud that our school was selected as a 2014 Blue Ribbon School!

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.
