Going to St. Peter's was probably the worst experience in my life. As a former student, I am finally venting all the frustration that has built up from the last few years of going to this "school." During my seventh grade year at St. Peter's, we were forced to carry around a rosary. This violated my then classmates' and my religious rights. One incident that occurred a few years back mad me rather upset. A friend's brother and two others were forced to perform perversive acts by two other students. The administration did little to amend the horrible acts. Think twice before sending your child to this school.

We LOVED St. Peter School! We have moved around the country and attended several Catholic schools. While no school is perfect, my children were both given the tools to achieve their personal best. I found Mrs. Roth to be exceptional, and Mrs. Bardy at the front office to be the epitome of a friendly school secretary. I felt my children were safe and truly appreciated at this school. We were disappointed when we found out we had to move again across the country ---- not every school is this caring.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
