Academically rigorous, fantastic teachers, and a strong sense of community and Catholic values, Ss. Peter and Paul is one of the best schools in the area. The students consistently go on to do extremely well in high school, having been well prepared at SSPP. The teachers do a great job of focusing on the students and providing all the resources and support to make sure the children learn the material, not just wade through it. The teachers and staff also care deeply about the children and families and go out of their way to connect with them. The kids learn what they need but also feel loved and respected. Having children who are extremely different from each other at this school has helped me experience firsthand how skilled the teachers and staff are at reaching the kids as individuals. The school also provides social, athletic, and further academic opportunities, scholarship support, strong Catholic teaching, and community service opportunities.
