Earlier in the year, our daughter was having some difficulties and I was so impressed with how the headmaster, administration, and teachers responded. She is now thriving.

Once a wonderful place, has taken an unfortunate turn with the new Principal and loss of many amazing teachers.

We chose this school because of its small size and comfortable, friendly atmosphere. However, at least for our child, we have found the academics to be lacking in the Upper School. The leadership appears to be focused on values that are not in keeping with what we used to love about St. Peter's School.

When it was time to search for a school for our son to attend there were so many wonderful places of learning to choose from. St. Peter's school for us was the clear choice by far.

This is the best school in the region. Period. All schools struggle when going through a transition and this school is no different. I am so happy to have St. Peter's in my life.

St. Peter's is a great school and I am lucky to work here. This is a school that is rigorous and cares about kids. Strong traditions, academics, and a willingness to look to the future help make us the best. St. Peter's kids get the best education around.

There is no doubt that St.Peter's is a wonderful school but it is very obvious there are problems and that the school suffers from an identity crisis. It seems apparent that there is dissent within the faculty and a lack of leadership gives the feeling that there are "too many cooks" running the school. ...  Read more
