Wonderful teachers and staffs. Everyone is so helpful. The principal has great leadership skill. I am very happy that my boys are at St. Peter's .
Great School!! We have been at Saint Peter's for three years now (Pre-K4 to 1st. grade), and couldn't be happier. My daugther is happy each day to go to school and come home and share their experiences. The staff is great, the academics are very good and the families are wonderful. Highly recommend!!!
My daughter entered 3rd grade and is new to the school . I am very impressed with the academic curriculum. The teachers and staff are extremely helpful and professional. While I had many other schools to pick, I am very happy with my decision at St. Peter's. My daughter's enthusiasm every morning to go to school is a validation that I made the right choice.
Excellent academic curriculum. The faculty & staff teach and encourage good manners, right conduct and the right moral values that is sorely lacking today. Great sense of community and parent involvement in the school. We have been in this school for 9 years, sending them here was one of the best decisions we ever made!
We have been at this school for 6 years and we love it! The staff is great, the academics are very good, and the families are wonderful. Highly recommend!
We have been at Saint Peters for 3 years now, and couldn't be happier. Excellent leadership, phenomenal teachers, and a perfect environment for the children to learn and excel.
My children have been at St. Peter's for three years now from preschool to Kindergarten and each year has been fantastic. From the passionate teachers, advanced curriculum, school-wide events, to parent involvement opportunities - I feel blessed that we are part of this educational community. My children are happy each day to go to school and to come home and share their experiences. I have also truly enjoyed the parenting connections I have made as this has been another source of communication that continues to foster my decision to be at St. Peter's.
Solid academic program, strong Catholic values, great leadership, wonderful & caring teachers - that is what makes this a terrific Catholic school. My children have been here since kindergarten, and they truly prepare the children for the challenges of the world. We most truly appreciate the hand written notes and pictures that our principal, Mrs. Whelan send to each family one or twice a year updating us on how the kids are doing in school. The support from the faculty, the priests, the parish, office staff and grounds crew is tremendous - you know your child is in a safe environment at all times. Special mention to Mrs. Proday - who runs a tight ship but is well-loved & respected by all. Truly a Blue Ribbon school!
Wonderful caring teachers and staff. Solid academic program with exposure to art, music, and technology.
This is our 9th year at St. Peter's. My daughter will be graduating and my son is in 5th grade. They have both been at St. Peter's since kindergarten. This is a Christ centered school. They are taught values and what it means to walk in our Roman Catholic faith. The principal is outstanding; and the staff and teachers are brilliant, caring and very talented. There is an enormous amount of parent involvement. There is a strong sense of community here. When the children graduate, they are completely prepared for the next phase of their education. They truly deserved the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award. My children and I love this school and are very blessed and very grateful to be part of its community.
I am an 8th grade student at St. Peter's and I love my school so much!
Great School!!! It is our first year and our child couldn't be happier, he feels so welcome that it looks like he's been there always.
Fantastic school. Solid academics, caring teachers, outstanding and visionary principal, many enrichment programs, and a fun and engaging environment. My children's national test scores are very strong and they are reminded always to be polite, mindful, and caring citizens. Wonderful place. Well-deserved blue ribbon award from U.S. Dept. of Education!
St. Peter s is a fabulous school. Our children have been there for 9 years (K thru 8). There are multiple reasons for this high praise. 1. The Principal, Mrs. Whelan. Like all well-run organizations the tone gets set from the top. She runs an efficient, forward-looking team that is not content with the status-quo and yet she always has time for every student and every parent. 2. The teachers. First and foremost they are qualified, but as important they care deeply about their students and create a nurturing environment for learning. 3. The families. The parents care about their children, they are engaged, and they volunteer at the school all the time; these family values are in turn reflected in the types of students at the school. Is St. Peter s perfect? No. But nothing is perfect and when our children graduate this year it will be very hard to say good-bye. Even though we are in Montgomery County, and there are excellent public schools, we could not have made a better choice in selecting a school that provides challenging academics in a nurturing environment where children are happy and are taught to emulate Christ.
St Peters is a school led by a fabulous principal who has a lot of positive energy and interaction with the children.
I am the parent of 4 children who all attend St. Peter's School currently. We could not be happier with our choice to send them there. The teachers are fantastic, and the principal is superb. They are approachable, enthusiastic and supportive. But the added benefit of this talented school is that my kids are soooooo comfortable in their environment. They would spend all of their free time with their St. Peter's friends too if they could. The families we've become involved with are wonderful friends of ours now and support when we need it!
All four of my boys attend St. Peter's School. As a former MCPS teacher in the Olney area I struggled with the decision of sending my children to parochial school- are the academics going to be challenging enough, are the teachers certified and knowledgeable in their field, is there enough diversity, will the principal be the be a strong leader? The answers to my questions were answered; not only is the curriculum rigorous, the teachers knowledgeable, the students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and the principal an amazing professional and leader but, my children get to experience all of this in a safe, close knit and Christian environment. I am active in school involvement and I'm not alone; St. Peter 's has many parent volunteers that make help make St. Peter's a great place. One of the best things about St. Peter's is that each year the principal, teachers, students and parents work together to make it an even better school. Congratulations to St. Peter's School on being named a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence!
Excellent teachers, true Catholic environment, academically challenging. Our principal is wonderful leader who expects a high level of personal and academic excellence.
Where do I start!!!! We have the best kept secret in all of Montgomery County.. From the top, Mrs. Whelan (best principal in the state), to all of her staff and teachers, we have the brightest and most caring group of professionals that really CARE and will go the extra mile for their students as if they were their own. I have 3 children currently attending St. Peter's and a graduate at GC and all were extremely prepared for the next grade and above. My high schooler is in all honors, AP and IB classes and doing extremely well because of St. Peters strong academic standards. The Blue Ribbon Award just supports our GOLD experience.. Thank you St. Peter's School for everything that you have done for my children!!! ..
We have 3 kids at Saint Peters, preK3 thru 8th grade and we're thrilled! We've just relocated to the area from NC and reviewed various possible options before selecting SP. Beyond the obvious indicators (Blue Ribbon Winner, robust curriculum, terrific MD certified teaching staff, amazing commitment from Pastor / Parish), there's a "personal touch" that we've not yet experience. The first week of school, the Principal made personal phones to each preK parent to let you know how your child is doing. This week, we received a handwritten personal note from the Principal with a picture of my preK son updating me on how he's integrating into the classroom. Each morning, we're greated by friendly student embassador's helping my young kids out of the car, and each afternoon the teachers are outside to share with parents how the day went. The teacher send personal emails and notes, and the staff greet kids and parents with supportive smiles. Saint Peter's has exceeded our expectations. Thank you.
