I am unhappy to say that my experience was very different from the other reviewers. First off, I have 10 years of experience as a preschool teacher myself and was a Director of a preschool in another state prior to having children. I am disappointed overall with St Peter. My biggest complaint was that the children did not seem matter to them at all. My child was forgotten or left out of things. Assistance with tasks (like pulling up pants after the potty) was terrible. Every day my son came home with his underwear bunched up around his waist! Communication was severely lacking. Parent participation was not very encouraged and when you did volunteer you felt out of place because you never knew what was going on. We will definitely not be returning next year.
I understand what it means to get a solid education; I know what the value of a friendly environment; I embody all that stands for the betterment of the community, and I've been witness to the culmination of all that is dreamed of in this fine institution. Yet, the one thing that sets this school apart from any other school on the planet is that when you are there ~ you're family. As much as I would prefer to home school my Children to ensure they are getting the Best of Everything, nobody does it better than St Peter Catholic School in Huber Heights, Ohio.
Great preschool. Good school. Very caring teachers and staff. Safe, fun environment. My children just entered public school in another state and are way ahead of their classmates. I would highly recommend St. Peter's as the best option for an elementary school in the area.
Our daughter attends pre-school at this school. We can not say enough good things about this school. The pre-school teachers are excellent. They are very interactive with the little folks and work from day one on teaching them independance and responsibility as well as everything that goes with traditional pre-school. There is typically 22 or so kids in each pre-school class and each teacher has an assistant. The doors are electric and camera secured and you have to present yourself to the teacher to pick your child up. In the last two years, every child that leaves the classroom leaves with a hug from the teacher. The caring environment that is fostered here in exceptional! A++++++++++++++++++++++
My child is currently in the pre-school program affiliated with St. Peter's Elementary school and we love it! I am very impressed with the facilities which promote independence and growth in maturity as well as all the teachers and assistants. We had the opportunity to meet all the teachers in an open house environment which then allowed us to select the ones that would work best with our daughter. The activities and curriculum they use are top notch and my daughter loves attending. We are also very impressed with the way they incorporate prayers and religion into the class without being overly rigid about it. We are so happy with the pre-school, and only lament that we will be moving before she can attend Kindergarten.
