St. Peter Catholic School Reviews
We’ve struggled a little more though now in kindergarten with some of the communication and the classroom feel isn’t as “light and loving” in kindergarten. We also wish their were more opportunities for students who are excelling to be challenged. We receive homework, but if our student is bored with the math as the the teacher indicated at conferences, then please send us home with homework that we can do at home to help our student grow academically. On the plus side, the class sizes are only 12 when the public schools are double.
It would also be nice if the school offered clubs or transportation to the public schools to attend the community education classes.
