The St. Peter Middle School curriculum is rooted in faithfulness to Catholic Social Teaching. Our lessons have as their focus the dignity, rights, and freedoms of all people, as well as our responsibility to ensure that all people are treated equally and fairly with love and compassion.
Our rigorous curriculum ensures our students' success at top high schools. Our students graduate exceedingly well prepared academically, as well as with an understanding that they have a responsibility to care for others and for all of God’s creation, knowing they have the ability to make the world a better place.
Our mathematics curriculum prepares students for the most rigorous high school programs. Eighth graders complete a full Algebra 1 course. Classroom instruction is supplemented with the IXL computer program.
Our eighth graders select a topic, create a hypothesis which they will research and test. Winners from our school competition go on to represent St. Peter School at yearly Rhode Island Science and Engineering Fair.
Students hone their creativity and performance skills through creative writing, producing plays, and competing in the annual Middle School poetry slam.
