Special Education Services

St. Peter School believes that all students can learn and have great God-given abilities which enable them to contribute to our community.  We know that the path to excellence is different for each child in our school. St. Peter offers several services to help students make the most of their educational experiences and reach their full potential.  Children with mental, physical, social, and emotional challenges as well as learning disabilities receive support from our Special Education and Student Services Team.  Services are offered to kindergarten through eighth grade, and the student service and special education team also meets with preschool teachers during the transition into Kindergarten.  Support for each learner is grounded in service learning and accommodation plans and may range from assistance in the general classroom to direct instruction in special education classes.  St. Peter School partners with District 25 and outside evaluators to determine the best support systems for our students who are looking for special education services.  The special education coordinator also attends transitional meetings.
