About Us

Saints Peter and Paul School is a Catholic Elementary School in Williamsville, NY which is conducted by the parish to provide a thoroughly Catholic education which is centered in the person and gospel of Jesus Christ.

The administration, faculty and staff of the school are dedicated to providing a positive creative atmosphere which will nurture each student’s development spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically. Together they are dedicated to being an enriching, empowering and challenging element in the growth of each child; an element that will help them observe, explore, interpret and judge their experiences, ascribe a Christian meaning to their lives and act according to the norms of faith and love.

Take a moment to view the introduction to our new strategic plan: “Building a Foundation for Life”:

Philosophy of Education

Being here
Train soul and mind,
Going forth
Serve God and country.


By their fruits you shall know them.
What does it profit a man
if he gain the whole world
but suffer the loss of his own soul.
The two quotes above are inscribed on the walls of the building which houses Ss. Peter and Paul School. They embody the philosophy and purpose of the school as it has existed throughout the years. The administration, faculty and staff of the school are dedicated to providing a positive creative atmosphere which will nurture each student’s development spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically. Together they are dedicated to being an enriching, empowering and challenging element in the growth of each child; an element that will help them observe, explore, interpret and judge their experiences, ascribe a Christian meaning to their lives and act according to the norms of faith and love.

This school is not just a building of brick and mortar, but one of living stones ~ people touched by God, Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and provides each person with visions and values for life which are God~centered.

Mission

Our Tradition: A Foundation for Life
Inspired by our founder and first teacher, St. John Neumann, Ss. Peter & Paul School educates children of all faiths in a Catholic, Christ-centered tradition. Since 1836, dedication to our core values – academic excellence, living faith, serving God and others – has provided our students a strong foundation for life.

Vision

The administration, faculty and staff of the school are dedicated to providing a positive , creative atmosphere that will nurture each student’s development spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically. Together they are dedicated to being an enriching, empowering and challenging element in the growth of each child; an element that will help them observe, explore, interpret and judge their experiences, ascribe a Christian meaning to their lives and act according to the norms of faith and love.

School Goals

“The children should walk away from each school day with something special that they would not have received in just any school: an increased awareness that we are brothers and sisters in the faith before we are teachers or students, administrators or parents.”

Ss. Peter and Paul School exists…

  • to provide formation of each student in the Catholic Christian way of life.
  • to provide information to each child about the various academic disciplines.
  • to train each child to use his or her talents: academic, social, physical and artistic in the best way possible.
  • to assist parents in the total formation of their child(ren).
