I am a part of the Class of 2014 and even though I only attended from 6th-8th grade, my time at St. Peter's has been a blessing. WIthout their help, I wouldn't be the person I am today. St. Peter's school provides hospitality and kindness all with a great quality education that is like no other elementary/middle school in the bay area. WIthout their help, I would be graduating from my dream highschool let alone be accepted to Archbishop Riordan. With their help, they molded me from a know-nothing student to an outgoing, well educated student with a deep passion in the Catholic faith.
