20 Parent Reviews for Peters Township High School

I have lived in Peters Township my entire life until recently, and it has been miserable from the beginning.

Overall, I think that the school is very good. However, my son has a learning disability and we've experienced some difficulty in getting his IEP on track with some of the teachers and administrative staff. Specifically, additional learning support in unstructured classes and OVR and OT. More inclusion ...  Read more
