I am a parent that both our children attended graduated from St Peter the Apostle school. The youngest graduated 4 yrs ago and is now getting ready to move on to college. The teaching staff and the administration at St Peter's is wonderful. They are supportive and welcoming. They foster quality education and solid Catholic teachings. I can say the teaching staff supported our children and helped them develop confidence which helped them be prepared for their education to progress in their future years entering high school and beyond.
This school has great teachers, who are closely involved with not just the student, but the whole family. Communication is outstanding between teacher and parent via the web, email and phone. Small class size and a sense of community within the students. Parents want to be involved here - they volunteer and are apart of the various events - whether sports or social events - making this school feel like an extended family. They strive to challenge our children's minds with strong academic programs, advanced science lab, and bring technology to the classrooms by utilizing smart boards and smart tables. They offer afterschool programs such as drama, music and crafts. You feel safe leaving your children here, knowing that they will be taken care of by a wonderful and caring staff of educators. I am so thankful for this school.
We are a returning family this year with a child in grade 7. Coupled with strong Catholic identify, the school demonstrates a commitment to all academic areas, including the arts. I am impressed with the emphasis on technology use, science, and accelerated math. My child participates in sports and plans on participating in this year's after-school activities like public speaking. On days when I cannot pick up my student at dismissal time, the school offers an "extended care" program until 6 p.m. My child's teachers and the principal are accessible and responsive to inquiries. I highly recommend this school.
We are just starting our second year as a family at St Peter's school, and we are very pleased with the education our children are receiving. If you are looking for a small, close-knit school with dedicated teachers and involved parents, you should check out St Peter's.
St.Peter's has wonderful, caring, and kind teachers. The school does a lot of special events for the kids. Everyone involved with the school is so giving of their time, especially the teachers. And the learning level is out of sight!
I have 2 children at St Peter the Apostle- New Castle. We find it to be a caring, diverse community which nurtures each child. The principal and teachers are all very approachable. The families are committed to the school community. They have excellent academics, a strong athletics organization and a solid commitment to each child's spiritual development.Excellent student to teacher ratios!! Highly recommend!!!
We just enrolled in St Peter School this year. The whole school made us feel welcome and instantly we felt such a spirit of community and caring. The staff are excellent. With my background in teaching I was even more scrutinizing than most. But they are excellent have recommended them to everyone at work!
I am a parent with two boys attending St. Peter's. They attended since Pre-K and we absolutely love the school. It has great school spirit and the entire school community take much pride in every aspect of school life. We are sad to be leaving the area and changing schools. We hope to find another school just like it or better!
A great school with big spirit. Solid blend of strong academic teachings with addition of moral and religious reinforcement.
