Saints Peter and Paul School is the primary educational ministry of Saints Peter and Paul Parish. Since 1865, the school has existed to serve the youth of our parish, and to help parents in passing on the Catholic faith to their children. At present, our program includes a preschool, kindergarten, and grades 1 through 8. We serve the students, parents and the community of Saints Peter and Paul and neighboring communities. We strive to help families pass on the knowledge, beliefs, and traditions of the Catholic faith to their children; to provide an atmosphere of caring and respect for each human person regardless of race or ethnic origin; to create an environment which encourages academic excellence, and the development of individual talents and abilities; and to work in partnership with families, to instill Christian values, and guide children toward becoming responsible, caring adults. We strive for academic excellence in all curricular areas, the development of a positive self-concept, and good moral values. In order to help each child develop to his or her fullest potential, we believe in the shared responsibility of students, parents, teachers, administrators, and pastors.
