We have been at Saint Peter's for 2 years now after transferring from MCPS and are extremely pleased with our decision! Saint Peter's has a warm, caring environment among the students, teachers and parents. The teachers that my kids have had so far are top notch. They are attentive to their students' individual needs and truly care about their success. The curriculum is rigorous and not only inspires academic excellence, but places great importance on the students' self esteem and spiritual health as well. The extra-curricular activities include art classes, music lessons, band, choir, drama, Environmental Club, Science Club, Ski Club and more. We definitely recommend Saint Peter's school!

I highly recommend Saint Peter's. My children are receiving a top notch education and are learning at an advanced level. The teachers we have had so far have been experienced and dedicated to each child's development. The principal is a natural and effective leader and is a huge reason why the school offers so much in terms of academics, arts, science, and spirituality. The music program is amazing! We are lucky to be a part of such a great community with involved families.
