  • Our teachers have a strong focus on the individual child. They get to know individual strengths/weaknesses, learning styles, and needs. This information is used to both stretch and support student growth.
  • Gifted Education: We do differentiated instruction throughout our classrooms, offer Algebra in 8th grade, and cooperate with the public school district to have our students participate in available programs.

  • Very SatisfiedParent 12/16/2015
    Christ, Prince of Peace School is the second grade school that our children have attended as a result of a move from out of state. We have found that the teachers, staff, and parents are extremely involved in the development of the students. The school offers a wide variety of learning opportunities outside of the core subjects such as music, clubs, field trips, service projects and inter-grade involvement with other students. Algebra is now offered to 8th graders who excel in math. The school facilities are very good compared to their peers and the school spirit is very high.
  • Everything We Could Want in Our Children's "Second Home"Parent 12/10/2015
    I simply can not say enough about this school. When deciding where our oldest child would attend kindergarten, we were unsure we could make the financial sacrifice private school would demand. While we were impressed with our local public school, we decided to tour a few of the parochial schools near our home. After visiting CPOP, my husband and I knew we had to do whatever we could to make sure this was the place our children would receive their education. And we have not once regretted our choice. In our 6 years here, our children have gained more than "just" an exemplary education (which, as a former teacher myself, I have high standards for). Their faith has been fostered and challenged in ways I could not have predicted. Their teachers and staff members are people who feel like family. And the community is one who embraces a welcoming and supportive attitude like one I'm not sure I've been a part of before. In short, Christ, Prince of Peace is everything we could want our children's "second home" to be.
