Saints Peter & Paul School 1

SSPP is absolutely horrendous. The teachers are not qualified and their curriculum tends to be focused on religion more than learning skills needed for higher education. The administration cares more about making money, instead of focusing on controlling the students. If a kid is bullied and their parents donate generous amounts of money, the administration looks away, instead of caring for the victims. Kids go to high school and are shocked that public schools kids behave better than the snobby, pretentious kids at SSPP. My child walked into a public high school and was relieved by the fact that she was never bullied or demeaned by her classmates.

SSPP is one of the finest Catholic schools. My children graduated from other Catholic schools and I wish we had the oppurtunity to have our children attend SSPP. The staff is so kind and giving. The students are always in a positive learning situation. The principal has strong leadership skills and the parents are very supportive. What a great community.

SSPP School is a caring, well -run Catholic school that has done a fine job of preparing its graduates for further academic adventures and for their entire lives. The Catholic beliefs permeate every aspect of the curriculum, as they should, and its students reflect a respectful attitude for the most part toward themselves and toward their teachers, administrators and adult volunteers. Currrently, their is an emphasis on respectful liturgies with less of a 'show' at Mass and more of an understanding of the great mystery taking place on the altar. Students are expected to act maturely and pray at Mass, without the need to be entertained for the duration of the mass. I have over 35 years of history with SSPP School with all of my children(5) having graduated from there, and ultimately from Catholic high schools and colleges with advanced degrees. I would unhesitatingly send my children there again.

SSPP has not progressed one bit since the days of nuns and priests teaching. The classes are oversized and chaotic. They have, at best, limited resources outside the classroom for students. The curriculum has not changed in many years and the teachers are NOT reviewed on an annual or even bi-annual basis. Because the class sizes are so large, children are expected to fall into the classic 'catholic school box'. Ultimately, many children fall through the cracks or require extra tutoring outside the school. Really? After paying $3k in tuitiion. The principal is accountable to no one....he is the chief administrator, chief disciplinarian, and chief fund raiser...There isn't a vice prinicipal only two administrators that report to the principal. On the plus side, SSPP is a direct line to Benet, but so are many of the excellent public schools in the area. Not enough for us to keep our kids at SSPP.

Ss. Peter and Paul (sspp) is a wonderful school. The academics are rigorous and challenging. Students are prepped for success. Help is available to those who fall short of the demands. The rigorous schedule does not leave much classroom time for creativity. While Math, Grammar and Catechesis is strong, writing, art, and music are afterthoughts. The school has a very strong sports oriented culture, but also offers a good band and extraordinary spring theatrical production taught by professional actors and musicians. These theatrical productions rival some high school productions. Currently the worship aspect of school has changed, children do not participate in planning liturgies very often now, and at the weekly masses, every other week is a Mass that has no music at all. Rigorous and Rigid, bu't prepared, that's SSPP.
