Comments: St. Peter Claver has been a beacon of hope in the community for going on 90 years. The new addition and the renovations taking place have been accepted by those in the surrounding neighborhood and those who choose to send their children. It adds a sense of revitalization, excitement and beautification to the area. The students who attend express a sense of family and safety. They are known by name, not just a face. The school is an asset and we are thankful to have it!

Education is one of the most important aspects in the development of a neighborhood, community, city, state and nation. When we divert our priorities and neglect education we set our children up for failure. This been seen in the Treme' community with the poor upkeep of Bell Jr. High School, Mondy and other public schools. We must work harder to give our children the best!
