My child attended this school for two years, during the first year we were very pleased. This year 2012-13 has not been the same quality of education. There were two teachers that left last year. In the middle school level, I do not feel that the new teachers are qualified for their positions. They are still working on their own education and were more interested in such than the students education. During a meeting regarding my child, one teacher was emailing her instructor, another was checking her child's work at another school via laptop. We were asked to leave the school along with several other families whose children were struggling and needed some extra help. In being asked to leave, we were asked to tell new schools that we chose to pull the student out. There is the feeling that more is going on at this school than was explained in asking students to leave, there appeared to be an underlying agenda. Students whose families make high contributions to the school do not have to follow the same rules or GPA standards as those who don't.
My children love this school. As another reviewer stated it is their second home. While the teaching staff is starting to have quite a turnover due to retiremen, all of the staff that I have come into contact with are very caring individuals who are concerned with the development of the whole child. Ms. Hu has been successful in getting WASC accreditation.
Your child school is their second family and here at St. Peter Lutheran School we are family. The high level of education sets the foundation for their high school years. The students are ready to meet the challenges that await ahead of them. Check out Mr. K's laugh, Mr. Mara's funny jokes, Mrs. O'Keefe's hugs, Mrs. Nishimoto's patients, Mr. Collier's great teaching techniques and so much more. St Peter Lutheran school is a wise choice to make.
Great facilities, warm and caring people. We are a new family to the school and we felt totally welcomed and embraced by the school community.
I am a parent and proud that my child is a part of this school community. We are blessed to have a school with high ideals focused on Christian faith, academics, and sportsmanship. Parental involvement is important and stressed to continue fellowship in our faith. Ater graduating from this school my child continued on into the public high school. I am thankful she got her start here at St. Peter Lutheran School.
Our first year at this school and we are SO happy. Very advanced curriculum, balanced with fun activities. All staff and parents have been welcoming and willing to take time to help new parents and students. Awesome staff, from the principle, teachers, office, grounds and extended school care. We are very glad we made this choice. It is a superb environment for my children. Lots of parental involvement.
The teachers are the best! High academic expectations at all levels. Discipline in the classroom also teaches students to be acountable for actions and respectful in a Christ centered program. I love the school and what it stands for. Parent involvement is also a key part in the mission of this school. The only thing I think could be better is extracurricular activities. Because it is a small school, we lack in this area.
Superb academics. The extracurricular activties are tremendous. Outstanding computer lab, physical education, and arts! My children get up and can't wait to get to school. I am so glad I found this place, it has blessed my family.
Quality of overall education is excellent, but the athletic and computer programs are not where they need to be.
I am a parent of my third child to attend this school. I am also a public school teacher. The academics are very advanced from the public school system, however they manage to have a well balanced school environment with many extra curricular activities. All of this is taught in a loving Christ centered school where all Christian religions are treated as equals. The main downfall of this school is there very active grapevine (or gossip chain). On occasion a harmless incident can get blown into a full scale problem because of this. I have personally checked out at least 20 private and public schools in my area and have once again chosen this school for my child. No school is perfect but this one is the closest I have found!
