My school is filled with very devoted and driven teachers. If there is ever a problem of any kind, it will definitely get solved in an quick and efficient way. My school is an older building so it could be greatly upgraded. Its equipped with a computer room with more than 20 computers. The curriculum is challenging, yet if you work to your full ability, is easy to complete. I would recommend Mary, Mother of Peace to anyone.

My son is going into his third year at Mary, Mother of Peace Area Catholic School. I was excited to have him there when he was first admitted to the school, but I slowly lost trust in the school staff. I found that the school doesn't teach children on the level that they are in but where the school is. My son is advance for his level and I don't see growth for him there. I would like to see science, social studies, sports and a language for the younger students not just the older ones. I would also love to see music in the school.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
