Excellent school. The parent-teacher-administration relationship is collaborative. The school is a real gem. The city, community, and region should be more aware of St. Peter's philosophy. With no public funding or ties to the archdiocese (or other entities), the parents are very involved and the administration is very aware on making every effort to keep tuition low. You can't say that about any school. Teachers are hands on and the student-teacher ratio is low; the curriculum is very challenging but very rewarding. The children come out of this school far more prepared than their peers for high school and college. With so many entities throwing money or tax increases at failing schools, SPA stands out. It doesn't ask for handouts and doesn't make excuses that it is underfunded for poor performance; it teaches children. When people hear their story, they had no idea such a school existed. More foundations and charities should be aware of SPA.
I love the close knit family feel of St. Peter Academy. They really care about every child individually and it really shows! They make it fun to learn and not a chore to go to school!
St Peter Academy has the best, most involved and caring families. Our school has overcome overwhelming adversity, financial struggles and a lack of respect by our community. Our kids deserve the best and our teachers and Principal give much more than they need to - out of their own pockets and give so much of their own time! We couldn't be where we are without them!
Great group of teachers and children. Awesome family cooperation and commitment to the community. All around, great school!
I am an alumni, a parent and an aunt .... i have loved this school and all it has taught me, and wish the same wonderful memories and experiences for my children and relatives.
St. Peter Academy is a loving school filled with caring teachers, supportive staff, and engaged parents. The small size of the school ensures that every student has a voice and is heard.
St. Peter Academy is dedicated to continuing to build a school that is committed to the promotion of a high level of academic, spiritual, and personal growth. Thanks to the dedication of its teachers and parents we are well on our way!
Parents and teachers are very involved in the school and it's success.
It's a small catholic based private school. Everyone knows everyone there. It's a tight knit community. And my child loves it too.
I love St. Peter's Academy because each and every day everyone at the school works as a community to make it the best possible place for learning!
What a great group of parents and faculty who come together for the express goal of boosting the children both in academics and spirit! Small class size, engaging and experienced faculty, and a rigorous curriculum set the standard at this parent-driven school with a Catholic focus. I've had three children who have successfully absorbed the philosophy of St. Peter's at the elementary and middle school levels, two of whom are in college and one who can't wait to go. All their efforts at St. Peter's prepared them for their continued education through high school and beyond. And they give back to their community as a lifestyle, having learned the ropes at St. Peter's.
SPA is a school that not only educates but focuses on the children being good people. Being a small school no child goes unnoticed and every parents concerns and ideas are considered. I couldn't think of a better atmosphere for my children to grow.
Its a small neighborhood school that not only provides my children with a high degree of academic challenges as well as a loving, nurturing environment filled with dedicated teachers!!!
The teachers are caring and the small feel makes it a great environment.
At SPA, the work is rigorous and the students are well-prepared for entrance exams to high schools, but the overall mood of the school is easygoing. The teachers really seem to enjoy their jobs and they provide a lot of encouragement and academic support to children who are struggling. I have had three children at SPA, and it's been great for all of them.
The teachers and staff are amazingly dedicated to the school, and the children are getting a solid education. It has a wonderful feeling of community.
I love it. The parents actually have a say. It's a parent-run school. And the kids love it.
My children are receiving a very good education in this unique, nurturing educational environment that is almost like a second home--where everyone knows everyone.
