A NEW PARENTS VIEW………….
Like any parent, I wanted my child to have a productive and positive educational experience. When it came time to start thinking about schools for her, I knew I wanted a place with a challenging curriculum that would give her a strong foundation for the future. I also wanted a place that put the same importance on teaching children to become good, moral, and responsible citizens of our world. I found this rare combination at St. Peters.
From the minute I walked through the doors, I knew this was the place I wanted to send Emily. I am not sure if was the sense of familiarity or the colorful children’s artwork on the walls but I immediately felt welcome. The community spirit was simply infectious. It was also evident that the strong Christian values you would expect from a Catholic school are not only taught here but are a way of life.
In the hustle and bustle of today’s busy world it is nice to walk into a place were people know you and your children by name. As a class mom, I spend a lot of time at the school and see first hand the dedication and hard work of the teachers and staff. With only one class per grade I know my daughter is receiving the individualized attention she deserves. Plus, St. Peters offers the same extracurricular opportunities, like sports and after care that you might find at a larger institution. Again, the best of both worlds.
I know my child is lucky to attend such a great school and as a family we are blessed to now be part of the St. Peters’ Community. I truly believe that St. Peters is one of the best-kept secrets at the Jersey Shore, but don’t take my word for it. Come experience it for yourself and your children. You will be glad you did.
