St. Peter School lives and nurtures our Catholic faith while embracing our multiculturalism. We believe in teaching to the heart, mind and soul of each child.

St. Peter School serves girls and boys in K1 through Grade 8 and offers a rigorous academic program to a diverse student body, which includes many international students.

A balanced literacy program with guided reading and phonics, Saxon Math leading up to either pre-algebra or algebra,an inquiry-based science program in a new lab and project-based learning experiences enhance the curriculum. Partnerships with local universities extend learning beyond the classroom.
