The Middle School is characterized by active learning, where the hands-on approach from lower grades transforms into the demonstration of learning in various ways in and outside of the classroom. Study in traditional subject areas continues, but more creative thinking and hands-on projects are emphasized. Community involvement is encouraged, which establishes a broader worldview; service is approached with both academic reasoning and sensitivity/compassion. Students graduate from Sts. Peter & Paul with strong roots in Catholic tradition, and ready to take on the next level of their education.
