School Reviews

The quality of education from St. Peter's Montessori School is amazing. Children as young as 6 (if they are ready) are doing long division and pre-algebra. Music is incorporated throughout the learning environment both in the primary classes and in the elementary. Outside of the classroom, children experience learning through multiple fields trips per year, including the symphony, science center, food bank, and nature hikes. My children love going to school and I only wish I would have been able to go to a school like St. Peter's when I was a child.
