    We absolutely love St. Peter School and can not imagine our daughters being anywhere else for their Catholic education. The school provides such a wholesome and loving environment where both students and parents/grandparents feel welcome when there. We love that St. Peter's finds a beautiful way of blending our Catholic faith and values with strong academic excellence in every grade and at every stage on a daily basis. It is very important to our family that our daughters are educated in a school that provides a strong Catholic education that fosters our Catholic beliefs and traditions as they grow while challenging them academically and preparing them for their promising futures! We are very grateful to have our St. Peter School, Parish and Community!

    We love St. Peter’s school in Merchantville. The teachers are all very friendly and are easy to talk to about any situation you may have. I feel like I have developed personal friendships with the teachers my kids have had in the past. Our children are getting an excellent education, I’m very pleased with the curriculum. We get compliments from family members and our friends on how smart our kids are. I said that’s St. Pete’s! It’s a great school! One thing that I really love is how close the classmates and parents are with each other. It really is a close knit community. I went to public school growing up and we didn’t have that at all. We all have made lifelong friendships. I would highly recommend St. Peter’s school to any family interested in a great Catholic education
    St. Peter's is an excellent school dedicated to religious instruction, family values and accredited, progressive learning. It has challenged our son to be the best student he can be, while providing him with social and extracurricular opportunities that are second to none. From Pre-K through his current 8th grade year, St.Peter's has encouraged him to grow as a scholar and as a kind Godly young man who us fully prepared to move on to high school. We feel blessed to have sent him to St.Peter's and would do it all over again!
