Sts. Peter & Paul school follows the curricula provided by the Diocese of Cleveland which meets the criteria of the Catholic Conference of Ohio and the State of Ohio. Sts. Peter & Paul has full accreditation from the State of Ohio through the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association.

The use of Smart-boards (SMART™) in every classroom, the latest state of the art teaching tool, bring to life a new and exciting world of visual sensory learning to reinforce the traditional auditory learning with pictures and software designed for each grade level to capture the students attention, saving time in the classroom from the need of the traditional method of writing important topics on the blackboard which aid in note taking. Teachers have many of the related texts readily available to be displayed on the board from their classroom computers at the click of a mouse button.

Our classrooms are open and friendly settings that provide a safe haven, allowing students to explore and contribute to their educational experience. The Iowa Test of Basic Skills/Cognitive Abilities Test ITBS/CAT are administered in grades 1 through 8. Individualized education is provided throughout each subject and grade level. Sts. Peter & Paul provides a challenging curriculum building a firm foundation in Reading, Mathematics and Language Arts.

We are dedicated to teaching a child as much as possible during each class. Our classroom sizes in terms of teacher to student ratio allow our teachers to spend much more time with each student as compared to other schools in our geographic area. Christian values and traditional customs such as the Pledge of Allegiance give our students the same foundation that many generations before them experienced in school.
