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!

This is the best school ever. I currently have a first and third grader attending. I can only say good things about the teachers they have had. This school really promotes kids to excel in academics. The principal is wonderful. He is caring and very involved. I highly recommend this school to everyone.
