I was genuinely impressed by the school’s desire to pursue cutting edge research in teaching philosophies combined with the traditional values that the school instills in it’s students.
The tuition is much more reasonable than many of the independent schools (and doesn’t start climbing steeply after kindergarten), and it still had all the things we were looking for.

At St. Peter’s School, the children learn to be good individuals: tolerant, respectful, honest, cooperative, kind and engaged in their community through service. The curriculum and school are a structured environments: students wear uniforms and civility is expected. The St. Peter’s School experience will prepare my child to enter the professional world successfully.
We were attracted to the reputation for educational quality, particular the emphasis on teaching. We also liked that the values-based education as well the quality of the non-academic programs.
