Prince of Peace school is a gem. The school is very small, but the kids get exposure to art, music (band, handbells) and sports (volleball, basketball, and track) as well as a great technology program in a warm, Christian environment. Parents are required to participate, but many participate much more than the volunteer hours requested, sharing thier gifts and talents with the kids. The older kids, are encouraged to mentor and 'buddy' the younger kids which is a joy to see, both when your child is the receiver and when they are the giver. My child is now a 7th grader and has been there since kindergarten. I feel very fortunate to have found such a place for her.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
