Our school is amazing . It really feels like a family. The principal and the teachers genuinely care about the students. The principal, Mrs. Signorile is the most involved principal I have ever seen. She knows all of the students and parents by name and actually signs every test that goes home K-8. Sending my children to this school was the best decision my wife and I have made.

Our Lady Queen of Peace elementary school in Staten Island New York is an excellent school. I've had the pleasure of meeting one of its bright students. When he talks of his school he lights up with excitement. He is extremely bright and enjoys participating in the various school projects/events. His family is very pleased with the school and the wonderful staff.

My four children transferred to Our Lady Queen of Peace ( OLQP ) for the 2013-2014 school year from another Catholic school. The transformation in them has been more then we could have ever hoped for. Not only are they happier, but their grades have all improved tremendously. My two sons received first honors this last marking period, while my daughter has a 93 average. My fourth child is in kindergarten and her reading ability is incredible. In fact, she has clearly surpassed that of my other three children at her age. Apart from the excellent curriculum and wide range of extra-curricular activities offered to the students, a note has to be made of the school s principal. She is an outstanding educator and a true leader. She attends all of the events at the school which shows her students and parents that she cares and builds comradery. Also, and most astonishing, is that she signs every test my children take She is such an asset to OLQP and we are lucky to have found OLQP and her!

We transferred from public school 3 years ago and my only regret is that we waited that long to make the switch. OLQP is an amazing school. You will not find another principal like Mrs. Signorelli. She cares so much for the school and especially the children who always come first. The children learn so much more than they did at the public school and really enjoy going to school. I truly feel like I'm part of a family at OLQP. Our family has decided to move out of the area at the end of the school year and what we will miss most is this wonderful school and all the amazing friends we made here.

I have 4 children in the school and I absolutely love it. Our principal is so dedicated and involved in our children's lives. The teachers are committed to providing a solid foundation for the students. They are professional and diligent and prepare our children for the future. The parents are selfless and the hardest working group I've seen. They sacrifice their time and energy to enhance the children's education and activities. We are so blessed to be part of this school, this parish, and this community.

My child has been in OLQP since Pre-K. The dedication and love of Mrs. Signorile is what drew me to the school. She is most impressive with how she knows each and every child in her school. She epitomizes the Catholic school care that I want for my child. Because of her, I am confident in the care and education that my child receives in school. I feel comfortable with the other parents as well; who are friendly and caring, making OLQP a family environment. I am also impressed with the students having the opportunity to take the State Regents exams. This is a bonus for our children.

This school is wonderful. My children both went to the school and graduated. They went on to Catholic High Schools with fantastic grades. The staff works very hard and knows all the children by name. The Principal is understanding and always there to help all the children. The parents are all friendly and the children all are welcoming to new students. The moral values are instilled into the curriculum. There are a lot of extra curriculum activities such as sports, drama, chess, band and girl scouts for the children. My children got involved in the Drama program and it gave them confidence. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone looking for a well rounded education.

OLQP is a great school! It is great because it produces quality students in a warm, family atmosphere. OLQP is great because the school's leader is great! The rest trickles down.... Mrs. Signorile is a loving, kind and caring woman who is a strong and fierce advocate for "her kids". She is always available, always ready to help everyone and anyone. Mrs. Signorile always looks to improve education at OLQP. In fact, this can be seen by the high quality of students that graduate each and every year. This year, the 8th grade class has garnered over $700,000 in scholarships and acceptances to highly prestigious schools.

Our Lady Queen of Peace is an excellent school. The Principal is wonderful, she knows every students name. What person do you know comes to a school and learns all of her students names within a month. She helps you out when you have a problem. The teachers are the best. They care very much about their kids at if they where their own. You will not find another Catholic school on Staten Island like O.L.Q.P. I am so pleased with Our Lady Queen of Peace. My girls have been here for 10 years and almost done.

Our Lady Queen of Peace School in Staten Island, New York provides a strong academic foundation for our children while instilling the Christian values of our Catholic faith. My children truly enjoy being a part of the OLQP family and have flourished at this school. The principal is totally committed to the children and knows each of them by name. She is constantly looking for new ways to enhance the children's learning experience such as new computers, new software, after school programs (both academic and recreational) and interactive activities within the community. We are a small school and would benefit greatly by winning the $5,000.

OLQP is a wonderful place. To me it is more than a school it is a home. Every morning when I drop my three children off I can drive away knowing they are safe and being cared for . Mrs. Signorile has an open door policy. She is ready to listen and eager to help at any moment. She takes a personally interest in each and everyone of her students. She is always looking for ways to improve her students education. I am very happy to be part of the OLQP family.

She is always receptive to the feedback from the children and parents...taking action to make things better! OLQP provides a compassionate, learning environment!

I am really happy that we chose this school for our son and now our younger son is also starting the faculty is great the Principal is amazing. She knows all the children by name and is more like a mother figure to all of them

I love this school because the first important thing to me is that the principal Mrs. Theresa Signorile knows every single child that walks through the gates and she is also there every morning to greet them at drop off. I believe the two classes of each grade helps the children to have a larger pool of social skills. Also the parents are very involved with all aspects of the school. The other thing is that the principal will always know what is going on with your children and try and help in anyway possible to work with you to solve any issue. There is always improvements needed in any school, my one is the lunch time set up.

I'm so glad that I made the decision to send my children to this wonderful school. A very nurturing environment, an excellent principal, who always puts the needs of the children first, and caring teachers. Our Lady Queen of Peace is a great school.

OLQP is a wonderful school. The education, care and love at OLQP is what every parent wants for their child. Teachers teach like they have a personal stake in each child's outcome. School leadership is top-notch; our principal, Mrs. Signorile, leads with tough love, creating a safe, welcoming environment. I know first-hand -- my son and daughter (5th grade and 1st grade) both love going to school, and that's saying a lot! Go OLQP!
