All his past teachers did an awesome job each of his 4yrs attending this school. They’re kind and very accessible and made sure he had an understanding of his subjects.

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

My son has a great understanding of his school work and little homework that he brings home. I never really need to further explain things to him.

Amount of homework: Just right

This school focuses on family time which I think is great. He is able to do the things when he comes home.

Develops respect: Agree

Respect is learned mostly at home. My experience with the kids is that they’re mindful of respecting teachers and other adults

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Through learning about Christ, the children try to do as he does. When someone gets hurt or is crying, most of this kids run to check on them and help.

My son came from Frazier elementary where he didn’t fit in with the kids. He was in a combo class, too many kids, had to work independently all day. He wanted me there every day because he was uncomfortable. I left when he started 2nd grade. Praise God, because 7 kids left Frazier the same day and we all came to St. Peters the apostle Catholic school. The Principal took him in and let him stay at school in the class while i was meeting with her. Right away he was taken in by the kids of the class, they all talked to him, helped him with the art project they were doing. Praying before lunch, he’

s eating the free meal the Principal paid for, he turns to me and says “I like it here mom, everyone’s so nice”. He was scared to go to a new school, but once he got to St. Peters he was hooked. He has a strong love for God and the caring, personal attitude of the people of this school. Best parents I’ve ever worked with on the PTG. The kids all play well together and I LOVE the small class sizes. Beautiful, safe campus and I love that I can go and sit with my son at Mass on Thursdays. We are not Catholic, but I love God and the fact that HE’S in this school. I’m very happy with his education. He’s an A+ B student. Minimal homework emphasising on family time. Close knit community and he loves the lunches!! He told me he’s “not leaving here until after 8th grade” so, ya he’s happy. So am I, wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you St. Peters the apostle Catholic school. You provide a safe place for my son to learn and love God.

All the teachers are outstanding at the school. With the new teachers on staff, there is new energy and excitement for teaching. They maintain a high quality learning environment for every child that walks into their classroom. My kids are excited to go to school every day, and I am excited to see happy teachers creating a caring place to be each day.

I have 2 children that attend St Peter the Apostle Catholic School, and they thrive in the environment. The school community is small; therefore, the staff and families have a great rapport. When children get in trouble, they do just earn a trip to the Principal’s Office. That is sufficient for the age of our children. The Principal works with the children to be better people and to learn from their mistakes. I am so blessed that my children are respected and taught to be good citizens rather than punished severely for a minor infraction. This is the school community that I want my children to grow up in. I know they will go off to high school and be academically and socially prepared to take on any challenge. This year there have been some faculty changes, and I am even more excited. It is nice to know that every teacher at the school is positive and wants the best for each child. This is a wonderful school for every child that wants to be appreciated by a caring faculty, and receive an excellent education.

St Peter’s is a wonderful Catholic community. The students attend Mass weekly, and all the teachers are Catholic. The teachers are dedicated and hard-working. The principal, Linda McCotter, has brought many improvements to the school.

I have two children currently attending SPACS. I have one child who attends the preschool and the other is participating in their Pre-K program. I am highly impressed with both programs and feel that they do an excellent job of finding a balance between social and academic skill building. My children love going to school everyday and come home with stories about fun lessons and amazing friendships. The classrooms and staff are very welcoming and I am confident dropping them off that I am making the best choice for their education. I plan on continuing to send them through the primary years and highly recommend to any parent to tour the school and enroll.

SPACS is such a blessing! The atmosphere is loving, caring and educational. The teachers are amazing. My son is getting to not only go through school with what is almost a one on one education but is also becoming more familiar with his faith as well. He is in the lower grades and I hope to keep him at this school through 8th grade. As a parent I could not ask for a better education for my child!

Up thorough the 6th grade my son was doing well. FUESD does a good job. During 7th grade, at Potter Junior High, he stopped thriving and went from honor roll to failing. Our son was falling through the cracks, despite our efforts with some excellent teachers. There are simply too many students to give one student the attention needed. Our family was miserable and fearful. We enrolled at Saint Peter the Apostle Catholic School. The pastor, principal, and teachers were excellent. My impression is that the teachers at SPACC are not only working at a job, but a ministry. The best benefit is the community. The community at SPACC is priceless. It was no longer an option for our son to become invisible. He presented challenges to his teachers, and still has not realized his full potential as a student., but he got two solid years with a strong community that knew him, accepted him, and met his challenges with high expectations and compassion. Teachers, the principal, the pastor and the entire community found his strengths and built on them. It cemented his Catholic faith and gave him a chance at solid footing for high school. That outcome was better than straight A’s!

Very Happy with the new Principal and all she has done to promote Catholic Education. These have been exciting time with new teachers, technology and leadership. My son is in his last two years and I will surely miss this school when he graduates.
