Peters Township School District Reviews

Peters is one of the best school districts in PA where it actually matters, on academics and preparation for college / life. Peters gets dinged for not being "diverse" enough but that just means the students don't fit some superficial and inane definition of the word that has nothing to do with real diversity of thought but is more about what students look like. Let's be honest, the quality of a school district is driven by how involved and committed the parents are. Peters is almost entirely populated by middle to upper middle class folk who work hard, have traditional values, and make sacrifices to ensure their children have a good life. That's what matters and in that regard Peters is one of the best places anywhere that you can live and send your kids to school.

Peters provides a good education for all the students, with numerous AP and Honors classes available in a variety of subjects. The staff works very hard to get every student prepared for college and their future career. Peters however lacks diversity. There are no teachers of color currently teaching in the high school. The district as a whole is very white, and the staff reflects that.
I've had so many wonderful opportunities at Peters Township High School that I'm grateful for. The academics are amazing and I've made the best friends I could ask for. The only drawback about Peters is the complete lack of diversity in race and ideas. Many students look and think the same but if you make an effort, you will be recognized as different and successful.
