Pretty bad school. It has been a long time since I went to this school back in 1990, but it was a difficult climb after it. I only attended 1 year in first grade, but I could not read because of a developmental delay. There was nothing to bridge the gap, and my teacher did not show me respect at all. Her name was Ms. Newman. The library is a closet for the most part. We ate lunch at our desks every day. I am all for a strict environment, but this place was very legalistic. I was ridiculed by the teacher for the stupidest things. My school story had a good ending though. I went to nearby Macomb Christian and was given patience by the special ed. teacher, and I had learned to read after a semester in the 2nd grade. I went on to excel and be salutatorian in 2002 at MCS. Stay away from this place and send your kids to MCS where the staff cares and can handle those with learning issues. God is still the focus if not more so there.

My children all attended Peace Lutheran over a total of 15 years. The smaller class sizes proved valuable as teachers got a great understanding of each child s strengths and weaknesses. I also appreciated the fact that each child was treated individually and not compared to siblings before them. Academically my children were well prepared for high school material after graduating from Peace. The students have become great friends and new students to the school were immediately welcomed into their group. The parents are involved and have become great friends. I m truly grateful we found the Peace Lutheran family.

Peace Lutheran School has always had a huge impact on my life. Peace taught me to have good morals, gave me lasting friendships and an excellent education. I am so proud that I was a part of the Peace family. My sisters, brother and I went to Peace in the '60s and early '70s. Since then we have lived our lives as we were taught at Peace. I do not live in the area now, but had I stayed I would've sent my son and now my three grandchildren to Peace. It's obvious Peace is doing something spectacular. Look at its longevity!

WOW! This is, by far, the best school our family has ever encountered. What puts Peace Lutheran above the rest, if we had to name a few things, would be that they are the only private school that has a special education coordinator who works with the students, parents and teachers, whether your child has learning issues or is gifted. You can feel the great energy and love the minute you enter this amazing school! NO BULLYING IS EVER TOLERATED, and the kids all get along whether it be in preschool up to 8th grade, the older children are taught how to get along not only by the incredible staff but also by each student. My children are now a minimum of a year to two above their grade level. What an incredible gift Peace is to the community! We are SO happy we found this gem!!!

We will never send our children to any other school but PEACE!!! This is the most incredible school with teachers and staff who truly care, and do an amazing job. The kids are all happy and excited to go to school, they are excited to learn and feel very loved and welcome at this great little school!! We have lived all over the state and Peace Lutheran is, by far, the best school we have ever seen and been lucky enough to have our children attend. We are not Lutheran, and that was no problem at all. Our children learn there is a Higher Power and are taught Biblical teachings. Peace is better than any private, charter or public school you could imagine. We are sold!! Peace is the best!

Peace is an excellent school. The teachers are kind, caring, intelligent and provide an outstanding learning environment for my children. I have a child who graduated last year and is now attending a public high school. Academically, she has been well prepared for high school. I have found that the teachers notice when students are not being challenged academically and have prepared extra/different assignments for those children. One of them was my child and we appreciated it very much. The principal is kind and caring yet stern when needed which is much appreciated by most parents. He handles issues fairly and justly while never forgetting to show God's love for the students and his own as well. I love that all the students in the school know each other and care for each other. I would highly reccomend Peace to any parents who would like their child/children to receive a Christian, high quality education from people who will truly care about them.

My child attended Peace for three years. Academically, the curriculum was not challenging enough and there was no program in place for students who needed to be challenged further or for students struggling in certain areas. Also, the textbooks are VERY outdated and their library is a closet in the main hallway. The principal often seemed annoyed with the students and was not very friendly. I must say what my child did get out of Peace is strong religious values which is extremely important to me. This school, although, does not offer a well-rounded education for the expensive price.

We always speak our native language at home. My son has been gone to this school for only 3 months and only 5 hours a week. I can see how much he has learned during the short period of time.

We are very happy with Peace and all of the families there. Our children are very happy and they love their new school. The church family is also wonderful and I don't think we could have picked a better place. Thank you Peace!

I had two children who attended this school and I have to say that I felt disappointed in the curriculum. There were not enough computers for all students to use and the classes are combined for grades so the children in the higher grades are not challenged enough. The kids are all very kind and caring and parents are very involved but I would have been happier with a more challenging classroom environment.

Peace is an amazing learning enviornment. The class sizes are kept to a minimum so the kids receive more individual attention. The teachers are dedicated and involved. The parent participation is outstanding. The students here test out very high in all the standardized state testing programs. We are a small parochial school so everyone is very close. The kids grow up with each other and generations of students have come back to educate their own children at Peace. I love our school and wish that every child could have the opportunity to learn here.

Peace is a wonderful school, it offers everything you are looking for academically and more! The class size is kept small for individual attention, teachings are around christian values. The teachers are dedicated and parents are a strength with the amount of support and involvement the bring. I am so glad my child is growing up and learning here.

Peace is a great place to grow up! I am a former student who attended Peace from K-8 grade (graduated in 1995). I truly believe Peace gave me the solid foundation for my life that has made me successful in my career and as a person. The teachers care about students individually and prepare them for their future academic, personal and professional lives. I am now half-way through attaining my MBA Degree in Management and I believe Peace started me on this positive track.

The small class size allows our teachers and helpers to give each child the added help he/she needs to succeed.

Peace teachers really care about their students. The staff is dedicated and will work one-on-one with your child if necessary. The 8th graders are more than prepared for high school. It's a real 'family feel' at this school. A safe, christian environment where your child will grow and learn academically and spiritually. Music program is outstanding! computers in every classroom, plus a lab. Sports program is focused on learning basics of the sports; gym space is rented. Affordable christian education!

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
