The faculty is high energy and they are highly dedicated. My kids don't want to the leave the building at the end of the day. To me that is the sign of a great school: kids wanting to learn and loving their education.

My son was going to a catholic school in which he was going down hill in math in 5th grade and was no longer happy with the teachers at the school. I decided to enroll him in Divine Peace and what an awesome decision! My son excelled in math and all other subjects and has built a strong faith which gave him the confidence that he can succeed. Faith and academics go hand and hand at Divine Peace which has matured my son into the young man he is today. My son graduated in June 2012 and was accepted in DeMatha High School and has been enrolled in all honors classes. If you want your child to have an awesome experience with faith, academics, and the love of Christ, try Divine Peace.

Based on the solid foundation students receive in elementary education at DP they go on to be successful in high school and college.

This is a great school, with a dedicated and caring staff. I love the small class sizes and individual attention. I feel that my child is learning in a safe, Christian environment.

Both of my children have been attending Divine Peace since just after pre-school, and we are extremely pleased. The small class sizes ensure the students receive tons of individual attention, and that lessons do not leave any student behind. Another great benefit is the mixed grade setting. Older students benefit from a constant review of previous lessons learned, while younger students begin to recognize concepts beyond their grade level. The environment is truly amazing, and I do not believe there is anything in the region that blends education and Christian spiritual development so well. I highly recommend Divine Peace School.

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.
