DO NOT send your child to this school. My son is a 2014 graduate and is struggling beyond belief in college. This school claims to be "college prep" it is NOT. New principal ONLY cares about Football and is hiring all of his friends. The teachers were forced to take a pay cut and it SHOWS, they have checked out. Kids fooling around during class, no back to school night, grades not updated on powerschool, no communication between parents and teachers. If you child is an athlete, RUN far from this school. They have NO CLUE regarding the requirements of the NCAA to ensure your athlete is eligible to play their sport in college. They do not keep proper records and send notices that tuition is owed when it is NOT. They will withhold report cards/transcripts until you PROVE you paid. Terrible school, terrible administration, I made a HUGE mistake sending my child there, complete waste of four years and THOUSANDS of Dollars.....LOOK ELSEWHERE...

This school is getting better more diverse every year. All the kid has to do is want to better his or herself, and they could go far with education.

Both my sons are QPHS grads and I was more than happy to have made the sacrifice to send them there! Professional staff and most, there were one or two, are willing to go above and beyond to help the student. They keep in contact with the parents, but parents need to be a part in their child's life as well. They work with the parents right through the college application process with workshops, as well as assisting the students.Is this school perfect, there is no such place, they all have imperfections but QP is 100% better than the public schools in this town! They work as a whole to better prepare the child for college and beyond!

Enter into this arrangement with EXTREME CAUTION. Things are not a they seem. The teachers work very hard. The administration has very questionable integrity; students see many examples of this to pattern their life by. Administration is less than truthful.You will not receive itemization of charges. An additional caveat..don't ask for one.

First of all I'd like to address the "sexist" comments about my school. The actions of one faculty member do not reflect the attitude, composition, and beliefs of the rest of the school. It was a fluke, and nothing more. Second of all, I'd like to say that going to Queen of Peace has been one of the best decisions of my life. When you attend this school, you are a part of the QP family. I feel at home and supported by my teachers and staff. I am given the tools for success every day and I'm encouraged to aspire to greater things in life. This school has a spirit that you just can't beat, and once again I'm very happy with my choice. QP has so many resources for students who need extra help. We have a resource room, and all of the teachers are willing to spend time individually with students to make sure that they fully understand what we're learning . Students are also willing to help, so you can always ask a friend for assistance. We have an amazing cheerleading team, theater program, volleyball team, tennis team, you name it. We've got so many clubs and extra activities to offer students. We even have a team that broadcasts the morning announcements from our very own TV studio.

These are the folks who had the girls-only no cussing pledge. Google "Queen of Peace" and "Lori Flynn" and "Pledge" in January and February 2013, and read the news articles and, especially, comments from alumni. Lousy academics (in a Catholic school!?) and MASSIVE sexism.

Any school that makes a 'no cursing' rule for girls and lets the guys do what they want is not only a place that won't be getting my money, it's a place that needs to be investigated. Are you kidding me? Sexism at its finest!

Please do not send your children here. This school is all hype. There actual class are far behind the local public schools. This school only cares about English, history and religion, they do not care about the math and sciences. I had straight A's in math and science but when I graduated I went to njit for mechanical engineering I started a year and a half behind in math and struggled to catch up. I was lead to believe that I was prepared for college. Also this school drives a lot of people I know away from religion, because they attempt to cram it down your throat.

I HONESTLY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HS. THE PRINCIPAL AND THE ASSISTING PRINCIPALS ARE VERY UNPROFESSIONAL AND EVEN THOUGHT THE TUITION IS OVER $9,000 PER YEAR, THEY HAVE NO SIGNIFICANT SERVICES TO SERVE THEIR STUDENTS. I BELIEVE THIS KIND OF MONEY COULD BE SPENT IN SOMETHING MORE HELPFUL FOR THE CHILDREN.

I sent my son there for his freshamn year. The teachers slacked off, the parents don't like to be involved very much, though the principal is very caring. The Extracirriculars are very inadequate. I recommend the elementary school, but not the high school.

This school is wonderful. The teachers are friendly, and get along with the students. There are so many activities, and more programs are being created. It has a convenient and safe location.

This school is the best thing to happen to me in my entire life. I graduated last year and I have no regrets at all. Teachers actually get to know the students outside of the classroom through activities and this helps the discipline since there is a very open relationship between faculty and students. Almost all of the teachers seem to love their job and this reflects on how classes are conducted. Tons of activities to participate in and if they don't have what you want, there is almost always someone (teacher and other students) who will help get a new program running. The best decision I ever made was to go to this school.

I came from out of the country to attend this school my junior and senior year, they helped become fluent in English, by giving classes of ESL. The academic programs are very good, and the teachers are great. This school has a very safe enviroment and the staff great too...
