Parent/Student Handbook 2020-2021

PHILOSOPHY

Prince of Peace Catholic Montessori-Traditional School, in partnership with parents, is committed to the quality education of the whole child: spiritually, morally, physically, and intellectually. In our joyfully and unabashedly Catholic, Christ-centered school, we strive to create a positive learning environment with a wonderful and unique hybrid of Montessori and Traditional curriculum that serves students’ different learning styles. As well as equipping the students with the necessary skills to succeed, our curriculum provides opportunities to help students develop “Christ in self-esteem,” personal responsibility, practical life skills, and virtue-based standards of behavior. We encourage students to hold themselves to these Christian standards by teaching and modeling respect for the dignity of all people.

As an urban Catholic school, we continually strive to create an atmosphere enlivened by the gospel spirit that will lead our students to assume responsibility in the community in which they live. We strive to form scholars and good citizens for this world and Saints for the next! In keeping with the gospel value of stewardship, we encourage local and global service.  We cherish a diverse student population with regard to the economic, religious, academic, ethnic and social realities of our children. We do this by stressing love and respect for God, self, and others.

At Prince of Peace we are committed to caring leadership, competent teaching, and cooperative endeavors with students and parents, as well as with professionals in the community and our parishes. It is only through working together that we can best serve our students.

Mission Statement

And thereby build a foundation for a faith-filled future.
