I have three children attending Prince of Peace and I am extremely pleased. It is a small school which permits the teachers to know all the students. This also permits the children to interact with different ages.The younger children benefit from the older and the older students help and work with the younger children, under supervision. The Teachers CARE about the children. They are willing to help students after school and are willing to help with after school activities and events. The children are taught manners and respect for each other and their elders.

My grandaughter is in Kindergarten and has had so many positive experiences at Prince of Peace this year. My 3 children attended there as St. John Neumann and I even attended there as Biship Neumann. It is a community school where classes are small and each teacher knows the children personally. I am glad my grandaughter goes to a school were academics are important and the teachers have time to give to each student.

Prince of Peace is an excellent school when it comes to academics. Small classes give the children just what they need when they need it. No one is ever too busy to help at any time. I choose this school over any other school in the area.

My son has been going to Prince Of Peace since he was in Kindergarten. I couldn't imagine my child attending any other school. Not only is he getting the best education, the school is ran to perfection. The kids are made to respect each other as well as the parents/people that come into the building. You would never go there and see kids in the halls acting up. The school is run like a school should be run.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

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.
