If you want to find the best 'real' Catholic education for your children and an incredible atmosphere of love and activity Prince of Peace Community School is the place for you. We moved our family closer to the school 9 years ago and all 5 of our children have passed through or are passing through this little Garden of Eden. We think they have everything the children need.

My child has attended POPCS for 3 years and we love it. It is a small school, so the students all get to know each other regardless of grade and the parents get to know each other. Parents are highly encouraged to be involved with the school. This gives parents an ownership in their child's education. The school also offers a wonderful spiritual atmosphere for the families. There is mass every morning which parents (and younger siblings) are welcome to attend. The school is a wonderful family atmosphere in which to educate and spiritually mold your child. The only downside of the school is that it does not offer as many extracurriculars as a larger school. But if a parents is interested in organizing an extracurricular activity the principal typically with the parent to make it happen.

A school for a spiritual and safe learning environment. The Catholic charismatic nature of the school is especially appealing to the children. The most academically troubled child finds a sense of peace and inspiration from God to do well. The classical learning theory brings out the talent that you never thought possible of your child. You'll wish that you could go back in time and attend Prince of Peace. Jim and Virginia Greene

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.
