We have been very pleased with our son attending for PreK, K, and now he will be in 1st this coming Fall 2019. St. Peter's is very attentive to each child by giving them love, direction, strong instruction, and spiritual guidance. We have our younger son planning to attend in the Fall for PreK because our experience has been very good.

My son is about to complete kindergarten and i can't say enough about what a wonderful experience this has been. The whole staff is warm and caring, he has advanced so much in one year it is amazing. We are not a super religious family and it has not been a problem. The religious aspect teaches great values that he is already teaching his little sister. Finally, the other parents/ school community has been super welcoming and friendly

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.
