St. Peter's has offered even more than we imagined it would. Both of our grandchildren not only look forward to school every day, but they are achieving gains in learning and experience beyond that for which we could have ever hoped. The teachers and staff have the ability to focus on the needs of the individual child while creating an inclusive learning environment for all its students. As an in class volunteer, I have witnessed firsthand what an excellent experience St. Peter's students have every day.

This school has been an amazing experience for our family! Admin issues seem to be resolved and, all things considered, it's a fast-paced business that runs pretty smoothly and with lots of love. Exactly what I wanted for my children.

From a classroom perspective, the school has caring and excellent faculty. The administrative office is not always the easiest to deal with on issues.
