I am currently a student at St. Peter's school going into 7th grade. This school has been a huge part of my life since the first grade. Ever since then, i have been able to realize my full potential not only as a student, but as the future of Amercia. In these nearly 7 years of being a part of the St. Peter's family, i have learned so so much acedemically, and mentally. I have learned most everything i know now, from this school. Everything from how to read and write, to how to convert unit quantity into money, and how the American revolution started and ended. I have also learned more social skills than i can count. From saying please and thank you, to minding when and when not to speak. St. Peter's is where i have met life-long friends and stick with me throughout everything and always have my back. St. Peter's is the home of the Aztecs, where i have also learned how to play my favorite sports, volleyball and basketball. These sports have teached me not only how to play the sport, but it has also taught me leadership and teamwork skills as well... St. Peter's has been an amazing experience and a great part of my life.

I am currently a 8th grader at St. Peter's school and have attended it since I was in kindergarten. Throughout the years that I have been here, I have not only improved my knowledge tremendously, but I have made friends, more like family after knowing them for nine years. Besides academics and friends, St. Peter's has helped me develop leadership skills which will be useful for me in the future by being in extra curricular activities. I am involved in sports, student council, traffic and safety, Magis, and altar serving. Due to all my teachers up to this year I have been able to achieve honors since third grade. They have a special bond with their students, which makes for a more efficient and productive class. They all have cared for me over the past nine years. Thanks to all their help I was able to get into Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory and St.Ignatius College Preparatory class of 2016 with distinction! Overall, I think that St. Peter's school is a great learning institution and can help you child strive for the better to accomplish what they want in life.

I thought this school was good, maybe 30 yrs ago when my husband attended 2nd thru 8th grade... I was extremely disappointed at the classroom ratio in kinder... The teacher and aid were overwhelmed by 30+ kids they were dealing with. My son attended kinder in 2010 at st. peter's, I had to pull him out because the Aid informed me that he might have ADHD??? If you ask me, an Aid does not have the knowledge nor the qualifications to diagnose or even assume that... I was promised an observation by the school Psychologist that never happened. (when I informed the principal I was pulling him out, she said, why? "He is such a smart boy" yeah, ok lady...I had him evaluated and was told there was nothing wrong with him. he is thriving in a very good public school, he has been student of the week and got awards for being a good student. I'm glad I made that move.

A very friendly, family oriented, nurturing environment. The faculty is excellent and the curriculum is challenging, yet fair. The student body is like a big family. My daughter loves going there. It is an excellent atmosphere for a religious education.

Because it serves the inner-city poor of San Francisco. The administration, faculty, and staff are A-1. The academic, social, and spiritual development of the studenbts is the BEST.

Not only will your child become educated but your child will enhance confidence, compassion, and good morals behavior. St. Peter's has always been big on intergrating self respect while teaching and socializing with all teachers and students.

I am currently an eighth grade student at St.Peter's. I have been at St. peter's for 9 years and feel that this school is 'okay' overall. Most of the teachers are really helpful, others are very impatient. I really enjoy the fact that you can pick any sport to play such as volleyball, basketball, soccer, and baseball. We also have music classes and the library is small but has tons of variety. Academically I personally think that St. Peters is a bit too easy and the teachers are preety lenient. ( i am a first honor student)...check out the other reviews if you want to know more
