    We absolutely loved Mrs.O’Keefe! She is a fantastic teacher with a gentle heart and does a wonderful job with the pre-K program. Mr. Morehead has been also very supportive and is always visible within the school.

    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.

    We have two children attending St. Peter's, for the past two years, and are so very happy with everything about the school! It is a faith filled environment, where kids are given the tools and support for both academic and social growth. A very positive loving environment, where the kids are also challenged to strive for excellence. Small class sizes, and dedicated teachers provide the one on one, personalized school experience every child should have. The staff is incredibly wonderful, including an amazing Principsl, and there is open communication. We love St. Peter's!
    I could not find a full time 3 year old pre-school for my twins, until I found St. Peter's. I looked at many places but none offered a full time option. My boys have thrived at St. Peter's in the short time they've been there. Their teacher, plus many other staff know them by name and greet us each morning and evening. The boys come home talking about all the things they learned that day, and all the friends they have. They look forward to going to school each day and I believe that is due to the dedicated staff, the curriculum, and the overall beliefs of the school. I look forward to having them be a part of this school and community for many years to come!
