Couldn't be happier with St. Peter's School. The teachers and staff TRULY care about the students. Class sizes are small. The parents are VERY involved. Curriculum is top notch. I recommend this school to everyone I know, Catholic or not, who are looking for a good, solid, MORAL foundation for their elementary school age children!

St. Peter's is an excellent school! I send my child there because it is the best Catholic school in Savannah. We have top of the line technology in all of the classroom, wonderful teachers, many of whom hold Mastes degrees and an environment that is nurturing. I love St. Peter's and so does my child. It should have a 5 star rating!

I attended this school and now my children are students. I think it is a very special school with a great community.

The teachers at St.Peter's are the schools biggest asset, and have truly cared about my children's education. The computer lab is state of the art, and the athletic program is second to none. All of this and the Catholic traditions and values that are reinforced daily, make St. Peter's the only choice for my family.

St. Peter has provided a great education for my children. We have been at St. Peter for 11 years and have 5 more years to go. They are continually updating and improving. The education, social life, community and church are very wonderful.

This school has a triple threat: outstanding academics, phenomenal athletics, and fabulous safety protocols. My son is in his second year at St. Peters and I would recommend this school to anyone...and I do! I can't wait until my other son is old enough to attend. My son is five years old and comes home each day trying to speak Spanish, attempting complex mathematical ideas (for his age), and exhausted from gym class. He loves this school! The principal, Sister Roberta, is doing tremendous work and is very 'in touch' with the kids. My son sees her everyday and we often get class work that she has graded and signed! With the modern security system in place, I feel secure knowing that my child is being protected. The other parents at St. Peters are wonderful. The teachers are caring and supportive. I just can't say enough about this school!

Initially, my oldest child began at St. Peter's for Middle School. We loved it so much, we pulled our other two out of their schools and also started them at St. Peter's. They have been here for several years now, and we couldn't be happier. I truly feel that St. Peter's is an extension of our family, and that they are cared for and loved very much. The teachers are wonderful, dedicated teachers and the school is technologically advanced with Smart boards in every classroom, an amazing new computer lab, Spanish beginning in PreK, and Music and Arts as well. The sports program is very competitve (SPAL Champs this year in football and volleyball) and is offered in various forms beginning at the Pre-k level. And of course, most importantly, the Christian atmosphere and religious education is everything my husband and I want for our boys. Fantastic school!

St. Peters came highly recommended to me and I continue to be impressed. The new principal is phenomenal, the teachers are highly motivated and concerned, and the technology the school offers is unsurpassed. I feel very fortunate to have my child at St. Peters.

My children are former students and have received a well-rounded education.

Posted March 3, 2010

Not only am I a teacher, but a parent of a student in St. Peter the Apostle. My daughter is now in college and earning a 3.5 her freshman year. All due to the great education she received at her elementary and middle school years. I feel the base that she received prepared her for high school and college. Thanks St. Peter's

I have been extremely pleased with the education that my children have received and are still receiving at St. Peter the Apostle. The teachers are terrific and really care about their students. They go above and beyond. This school is like a family where everyone looks out for one another.

St. Peter's is a wonderful school for my children. The location on Wilmington Island is both convenient and private. My children are challenged in the classroom and also enjoy all the extracurricular activities the school offers. Fantastic teachers, families and principal!
