Alumni Testimonials


“Sts. Peter and Paul really helped me prepare for my high school experience. I felt that the academics were strong and that the teachers were organized and supportive. My advice to students in the upper grades is to work hard and stay focused.” – Eden Placzek, Sts. Peter and Paul Graduate, Class of 2012


Jake Mach & Eden Placzek: Sts. Peter and Paul Class of 2012; Daniel J. Gross Catholic High School National Honor Society Members 2015

“I am Jakob Mach, a junior at Gross Catholic high school and a 2012 graduate of Sts. Peter and Paul school (SPP). I am grateful for the blessing to attend Sts. Peter and Paul. SPP molded me into a faith filled leader. The staff at Sts. Peter and Paul strives to prepare their students to take the next step in education and in life. The three junior high school teachers I had at SPP made tremendous impacts on my life. They taught me the importance of things both inside and outside the classroom. I feel that compared to most kids from other schools, I was much more prepared for the challenges of high school, mostly because of the preparation from my teachers at SPP. SPP is also the perfect place to grow in your faith and learn more about God and find him in your life. Ultimately, I would not be the person I am today without the guidance of everyone in the SPP family.” – Jakob Mach, Sts. Peter and Paul Graduate, Class of 2012

“Sts. Peter and Paul helped me prepare for high school and for what is ahead for me in life. It was a place that made me feel welcome as it was like a second home to me and I will always have a special place in my heart for Sts. Peter and Paul.

My advice to the students of Sts. Peter and Paul is to listen to what your teachers have to say, learn good study habits because Sts. Peter and Paul will prepare you for high school. Now at Gross High School, those study habits I learned have helped me so much” – Diana Cortez, Sts. Peter and Paul Graduate, Class of 2014
