Saint Peter Claver Middle School strives to instills a joy for learning, to celebrate student creativity and to support each and every student in attaining his or her fullest personal and academic growth. We are committed to making the Middle School an enriching learning environment. Our teachers are extremely talented in their respective disciplines. Middle School is a time of tremendous growth and change – intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. Saint Peter Claver provides opportunities for every student to maximize their individual strengths and develop a sense of self-worth that lasts a lifetime.
At Saint Peter Claver, motivated and talented students and staff work together to promote learning and growth. Our purpose is to help each student develop strong skills, an enthusiasm for learning, and the confidence and discipline to think independently and behave responsibly. Within a traditional liberal arts curriculum, students are challenged, within their ability, to embrace new ideas, listen carefully to others, and develop critical thinking skills in their journey toward independence.
All members of the community—including students, parents, faculty and staff—contribute to the spirit of the school. We contribute by acting with integrity and respect for individual differences, by treating others and the environment with care and concern, and by cooperating as well as competing. All assume responsibility for learning by participating in the life of the school, by valuing the accomplishments of self and others, and by striving to excel in all things. Open and honest communication between parents, faculty, and staff is vital to the work of educating children. We encourage parents to call anytime with a question, concern, or suggestion for improving our efforts on behalf of our students.
