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.
