Curriculum

Christ, Prince of Peace is a Catholic parish elementary school whose mission is to educate the whole child - body, mind and spirit - in a Christ-centered environment.

The 2017 - 2018 school year began with a new curriculum for Christ, Prince of Peace. This written curriculum is in place at all grade levels, which includes the special classes, and focuses on nurturing minds and achieving excellence.  The standards of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, as well as standards published by national curriculum organizations such as the National Reading Association, National Council of Teachers of English, National Council of Teachers of Math, etc., were used to develop this curriculum.  Various teaching styles, methods, and assessments are a regular part of our curriculum implementation.  Alumni students and their parents often describe our curriculum as challenging and regularly report that they are well prepared for their transition into high school.  This success is also evidenced by our ITBS test scores, which fall well above Archdiocese averages.
