Welcome!
Welcome to Peters Township School District! Every day we welcome more than 4,300 students into our classrooms to challenge and support their efforts in academics, activities and athletics. While we are widely known for our academic achievements across the state, the success of our students goes well beyond those statistics. Our dedicated and experienced staff seeks to have a positive impact on the lives of each student during their time in Peters Township – with each student we reach, we are making our mark.
