The teachers and staff at St Peter's are top-notch and embody the term above and beyond. Everyone puts the needs of the students first - that's an important attribute for a school to have. My middle schooler is already researching different colleges - a direct reflection of his teachers and their commitment to his education. We are very proud parents and highly recommend St Peters School.

I am a first year employee of St. Peter, Waldorf, Maryland. I am transplanted to Maryland from Pennsylvania and not a citizen of Waldorf. The welcoming and caring atmosphere afforded to me by Mr. West and his Administrative staff has been exceptional. I have not had the pleasure of working with such a great team oriented environment in several years. The genuine concern, compassion and attention given to the students by the faculty is awesome. The Assistant Principal and School Counselor certainly are an complement to the overall team of administrators who work in harmony. Thank goodness there are catholic schools like St. Peter's Waldorf! God Bless!
