Our kids have come home from school telling us their teachers say that people of other religions are "going to H - - l". What happened to "love thy neighbor"? How is this teaching them to be tolerant of others? Most grades have 12-15 kids, so if you figure most classes have two grades, the student-to-teacher ratio isn't better than other schools. Homework is almost non-existent, and from talking to others outside the school, our kids seem to be VERY behind in science, history, and social studies. The kids are also allowed to bring video game devices to school for recess. It's a small school so they probably won't be stolen, but what about interacting with other kids? I'm afraid that when they get into high school they are going to be very behind, not only in school work but in social skills. I don't make my opinions known because I've witnessed others being ostracized by parents when have an opposing view of things. The school's doing the best they can with their limited resources & the belief system they're expected to follow, but that doesn't change my opinion. If moving our kids to another school was solely up to me, I'd do it, but at this point it's not in the cards.

unlike the public school, st peters has a lower student to teacher ratio, giving the students more one on one time with the teachers, resulting in a higher grade average. This school is also great for children with learning disabilities, they have a program that helps learning disabled children excell in their school work. Antother verry important feature of this school is the religious and family values they instill in the children every day! This school and church has been a God send for all who attend!
