There are many qualities of a great and dedicated teacher, at Prince of Peace our educators possess an unshakable passion for their work. Our entire staff leads by example, presenting a positive example for our students, encouraging them to explore and exceed new areas of knowledge.

Our goal is to create a safe, positive environment in which students feel comfortable learning. We understand the importance of test scores but, our mission goes beyond education. We recognize each child as a unique image of God, we nourish the mind, body, heart and soul of our students through worship, service and academics.
