St. Peter Lutheran School offers an engaging, integrated, and rigorous curriculum that includes a strong foundation in core academic disciplines: English, with an emphasis on writing, reading and public speaking; mathematics; science; social studies; and Christian theology.

In addition, performing arts and visual arts, athletics, music, technology, outdoor education, and community service are important curricular components, enhancing the growth of our students' hearts, minds, and faith.  Developing social and emotional skills is a critical part of our program as well, and plays an important part in our school culture.

Our teachers create a rich and varied learning environment in which our students develop exceptional learning skills through engaging curriculum, creative projects, and hands-on interactive experiences.  St. Peter students know how to communicate effectively both orally and in writing, are skilled at information gathering and processing, and approach their studies with an inquisitive risk-taking spirit.

At St. Peter we deeply committed to the intellectual, social, spiritual, and physical growth of our students.  We also expect our children to develop leadership skills, compassion and mutual respect for others.  We guide them to become responsible citizens in our community and in the world.

For questions about specific text book sequence, please feel free to contact a teacher directly. 


Student progress is monitored regularly with respect to course content standards and school wide learning results. Teaching staff evaluate student academic performance using teacher made assessments and curriculum driven evaluations. Teachers are trained and encouraged to use multiple measures of assessments recognizing that all students learn differently. Student feedback is regarded as key in monitoring student progress over time. St. Peter Lutheran School utilizes the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) assessment tool which is a nationally standardized testing product. This assessment is given annually with the results available by the end of the school year.

Some parents ask why our school uses this achievement test over others, such as the California Achievement Tests (CAT) or the Stanford Achievement Tests (SAT).

The Iowa Tests advantages lie in the fact that, 1.) The ITBS can be administered across wider groups of children than the SAT, 2.) There are additional unnecessary restrictions placed on users of the SAT that do not apply to our school, and 3.) The ITBS evaluates higher order thinking skills while the CAT tests rely more heavily on rote memory.

Digital literacy begins in Kindergarten at St. Peter Lutheran School. We have three computer labs, one in the library, and two mobile Chromebook labs for the middle school. This provides a 1-to-1 ratio for students in grades 5 - 8. Beginning in the 5th grade, students are assigned a Google account that is managed by the school. Using Chromebooks, students access their Language Arts, Spelling, and History curriculum. Students also create projects, reports, and work on assignments using their Chromebooks.
