My wife and I are so grateful to have our children attend St Peter School. I can think of no better place. Our kids will be well prepared to attend the best High Schools and Colleges, thanks to the level of education they receive from St Peters. Mrs Taylor our Principal is doing a wonderful job. Pastor - Father Anthony fully supports our school 100% , along with the entire family of St Peters Church. It is a true Catholic School. The school has a new Computer Lab, Science Labs, Arts and Music Rooms. Almost every class has Smart Board Technology. Every Friday, the student attend Mass together. The kids are part of big family. They learn together and play together in the many after school sports programs and activities. Our school just gets better every year!

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.
