I taught at SS. Peter and Paul in the late 70's. I had a college degree and taught 5th grade for 4 years. I was the first teacher to have parent volunteers in the classroom. They were very helpful and knowledgeable and always willing to do whatever was asked of them. Most of my students reading levels went up at least two year levels. I don't know how things were after I left, but while I was there, SS. P&P was a phenomenal school opened to new ideas as well as to continuing traditions. It was a school to be proud of and it hurt to see how someone thought it wasn't. Sr. Damien was our principal. How easy to forget the good and how easy it is to criticize. I am ready to retire now but my thoughts and memories of the school and the people there are very happy and loving ones.

As of today 5/6/09 SS Peter & Paul will officially close at the end of this 09 school year.. I am a parent of 3 that attend school there. I have been a loyal returning parent for the past 7yrs. I am dissapointed that this school along with St.Als of Wilkes-Barre will be closing at the end of the school year...

My son has attended this school for 4 years now and I am very pleased w/his academic achievements. I have to disagree w/the above review. Unfortunately the same parents can not volunteer their time for every event, so that is why volunteer hours are required. It offers families the opportunity to meet eachother and mingle. I have not once encountered rude or ignorant parents. Financial aid is offered and support is only a phone call away to the principal. This is a school that offers a child the opportunity to learn in a small classroom size environment.

This school is a good school academically but parent friendliness however lacks. I think parents should be social towards one another and to a point they are but they fail to involve all parents and are ignorant towards some and fail to involve them whatsoever. They are civil but not polite. Tuition is excessive and tends to go up every year as well as fundraisers and it shouldn't be a requirement to sell anything or to have to either volunteer or buy out required service hours. Also to families who have finance issues, they don't offer much financial aid or support.
