  1. “St. Peter’s School is a parochial Catholic school. They are an all female staff, and only one classroom per grade. They have strong academics, great art program, little recess time, and rigid discipline system. The graduates tend to be behind in math skills and have to do remedial work to meet high school standards.

    The community is small and tight, usually locals attend, and few from other places, lacking diversity. Their facilities are old and there is no indoor recreation space.

    The tuition is high especially for the preschool grades. It works well for some families but not a viable solution for all.”
