    I am grateful for St. Peters School, it’s a safe place where children can stay young a little longer! I am grateful for the value of tradition in an era when people cut back on ceremony. SPS is dedicated to strong academics, values and the arts, that I am grateful for! I am grateful that my daughter went to High School fully prepared to take on the challenges of a new school and rigorous academics because of the well rounded preparation she received at SPS. I am grateful that I feel like a part of the school and my opinion counts and that the school encourages feedback! I am grateful MOSTLY because SPS is more than a school – it’s a community of people that care!
