The Wilson Family
We initially chose St. Peter Catholic School because we wanted our oldest son to have a faith-based experience in preschool. We wanted him to be able to celebrate Christmas and Easter at school, and we wanted him to learn about Jesus. After preschool, it was easy to enroll our son in kindergarten, because we had already fallen in love with the school. Now, we are in our eighth year with two kids at St. Peter, and we can’t imagine being anywhere else.
What do you love most about St. Peter?
From day one, we loved the smaller size of the classes and the school in general. Every staff member knows our children, and everyone looks out for our kids. We know they are in a safe, secure environment, both physically and emotionally. The academics challenge our kids, and we love the sports opportunities available after school throughout the year. We find the Specials classes of music, Spanish, PE, art and band to be above average for such a small school. The most important thing about St. Peter for us is the faith aspect. Our children bring faith discussions to the dinner table frequently, and they are taught how to handle any conflict with respect, compassion, and virtue. St. Peter School challenges them to be better human beings, and that is more important than any academic lessons they will learn throughout their lives. Lastly, we love the teachers and staff, who genuinely care about our children.
I feel safe with my children in a secure building both physically and emotionally. Our Catholic faith is the foundation that keeps our blended family together. We are grateful to be a part of the St. Peter family.
Office Administrator Carol Burns makes a positive impact on every St. Peter family. The LeVier family has two students at St. Peter. Parent Kristi LeVier says, "We chose SPCS because we felt comfortable talking to Mrs. Carol Burns. I spoke with her on the phone, and it was the comfort of her voice that made me realize that I wanted my kids going there (to St. Peter). She answered all my questions while I was out of state, and my spouse was taking a tour. We thank her for making us feel so welcomed!"
