I have been a student at Saint Peter's for 10 years now. I have loved the support and community that I received when going here. I am in 7th grade right now, and I will say if you're a parent, your child has so much to look forward to once entering middle school. I am involved in many activities, such as Newspaper Club, Wiffle Ball Club, Choir, and Drama. You are constantly being challenged in so many aspects, and the teachers really make you feel like someone special. So thanks, Saint Peters, for helping me achieve the next chapter in my life. Student from 2014-2025!

Saint Peters is an amazing school. My oldest daughter went to Saint Peter's after COVID-19. She was at MCPS school, and we could see her not being challenged, and hanging out with the wrong crowd. She would be getting "A"s in public schools but would never have homework. After COVID we looked at various private schools. Our daughter picked St. Peters. She liked the mixture of students from all walks of life. Many are Catholic but many are not but very respectful of the faith. The school teaches everyone is created in God's image and therefore are brothers and sisters. Fast forward to academics, my daughter had many tears in 6th- 8th grade due to workload, and not being taught what she was supposed to at public school. She learned quickly and loved being challenged. She made the honor roll in her two years and got into various clubs at school. At one point in 7th grade, she told me and my wife "Thank you for putting me in private school". "I have learned so much that public schools never taught me". She did awesome on her high school placement test and got accepted into all of her high school choices. She is now attending Good Council and loves it. My wife and I took our youngest out of public school and placed her at St. Peters school, she loves it and loves being challenged in school and all the fun clubs!!

We have been very pleased with our son attending for PreK, K, and now he will be in 1st this coming Fall 2019. St. Peter's is very attentive to each child by giving them love, direction, strong instruction, and spiritual guidance. We have our younger son planning to attend in the Fall for PreK because our experience has been very good.

My son is about to complete kindergarten and i can't say enough about what a wonderful experience this has been. The whole staff is warm and caring, he has advanced so much in one year it is amazing. We are not a super religious family and it has not been a problem. The religious aspect teaches great values that he is already teaching his little sister. Finally, the other parents/ school community has been super welcoming and friendly

We have been at Saint Peter's for 2 years now after transferring from MCPS and are extremely pleased with our decision! Saint Peter's has a warm, caring environment among the students, teachers and parents. The teachers that my kids have had so far are top notch. They are attentive to their students' individual needs and truly care about their success. The curriculum is rigorous and not only inspires academic excellence, but places great importance on the students' self esteem and spiritual health as well. The extra-curricular activities include art classes, music lessons, band, choir, drama, Environmental Club, Science Club, Ski Club and more. We definitely recommend Saint Peter's school!

I highly recommend Saint Peter's. My children are receiving a top notch education and are learning at an advanced level. The teachers we have had so far have been experienced and dedicated to each child's development. The principal is a natural and effective leader and is a huge reason why the school offers so much in terms of academics, arts, science, and spirituality. The music program is amazing! We are lucky to be a part of such a great community with involved families.
