Love this school! My oldest started as a kindergartner and is now at SSA in 11th grade. We have one going into 5th, one in 2nd, and my youngest is starting pre-k this year. We have been very pleased with MQP for the last 11 years and look forward to the next 10. The staff is loving, caring, and always willing to go that extra mile. The school pulls together like one big family to help another in need. We are blessed to be a part of this school.

Can't be happier with the level of education and the quality of time spent with my three children. The level of professionalism is one of the best options available in my community.

I have had 2 children atend this school and both had wonderful experiences. They attended 2-7th garades. The parish priest is very involved with the school activities. The school is a true ministry of the parish. All of the teachers are caring loving people. The principal and her staff keep up with the latest teaching tools and technology. Highly recommended.

My son has attended Mary, Queen of Peace for the past 3 years. This school is academically strong and at the same time teachs values to our children. The principal, Dr. Lancaster, is outstanding in her interaction with the children as well as the faculty. The teachers love MQPCS and it shows. As a parent you are welcome to participate in your childs educational experience. There is strong parental involvement as well as cutting edge technology. Mary, Queen of Peace school is the place where your children will grow academically, emotionally and spiritually. Heidi Downum-Fisher, parent

My daughter is in 1st grade at MQPCS and has been enrolled for three years. She is treated with respect, honesty, and love by all the teachers and staff. The principal, Dr. Lancaster, gives personalized attention to each and every child. She believes that children learn best in a loving and fun environment while still striving for and earning academic excellence. My daughter's self-confidence has blossomed at MQPCS and her grades are superior. This school is our family and I believe it is the best school on the Northshore!

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.
