Terrible. The current principal Mrs.Cisco is terrible! The teachers are very sarcastic and so is the principal. I don't think this school is a great environment for my daughter. If you want to receive: Sarcasm, racism, and rudeness from the teachers then go ahead!

My daughter has been attending this school since kindergarten & is now in the 2nd grade. We are very happy with her academic progress as well as her social development. She really enjoys learning at this school & doesn't have any complaints. The principal is quite amazing ! She's completely involved, vigilant, aware of everything, always present - even during dismissal, and very approachable if you want to discuss any issues & definitely very effective when handling parent/teacher/student issues. The number of students attending this school has been pretty consistent and the teachers have also remained since changes in staff were, in my opinion - correctly implemented for pre k. The upper grades often receive academic recognition as this school strives to be a well rounded, surviving, good catholic school. Great environment & all round, nice school.

This school is small but excellent. The attention my daughter gets from the staff is incredible and their curriculum is even better. In prek4 alone, my daughter learned to write her letter, numbers, read one and two syllable words and add and subtract. I know kindergarten children in other schools that can't do that yet. St Peter's is ahead of the curve. This Catholic school does not disappoint in any way.

I was very pleased with all my son learned during his first year of school. Mrs. Laudati, the kindergarten teacher is wonderful. She encourages the children and has a lot of patience. I am looking forward to sending my son into the first grade there to continue the great experience.

I am happy with the education my daughter is aquiring at this school. Teachers are profesionals with a lots of experience. The only problem is aftercare there is more than 60 kids with only 2 caregivers.

The student/teacher ratio could be better. Currently there are 30 students in some classes and one teacher.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
