Something that I love about my school is hat they take education very seriously. Peters Township ensures all students a well rounded education in Math, Science, English and History courses. There are also numerous clubs, sports, and activities this school offers to reach interests of every child. We have clubs from Horticulture to Fashion. Something that I would love to see be changed in my school is the regard for creative students. While Peters Township encourages art and music classes, they do not offer many theater or vocal electives. Overall, Peters Township School District is a very good district, and I am proud to graduate with a PTHS diploma.

Attending Peters twp i believe that it was a rather pleasurable expierience, teachers were educated profesionals and believed in the things that they were teaching. Curriculum was not the most engaging at times due to a rather over baring community that focused on the students who excelled. I felt as though because i couldn't function as well being locked in school for six hours a day that i was more of a burden to teachers who were teaching core curriculum to more well off students. That is something very dear to my heart that i would love to change about most school systems especially Peters Twp. I believe that like most school systems they are trying to raise test scores and placement scores. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing but it was not in any way beneficial to my individual needs as a student.
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.
