We take pride to call our school the best residential school because we have been rated among the top 4 Residential Schools in Hyderabad by the survey conducted by “ The Times of India” dated 29th September 2015. This is because we offer our students more than just a place to live in while they are away from home; it gives them an opportunity to thrive in their work and also in their friendships. The most important aspect of our boarding programme is the care and support given to the children. We ensure that each student that boards at St. Peter’s is given the opportunity to work to the best of their ability by offering them further support, encouragement and individual care after the school hours.
Our boarding programme gives our students more than just the chance to spend additional time than they are offered during the school day to work on their studies.

The core values of our School curriculum draws its strength, by keeping pace with the 21st century and the global trends of educational transformations, as well as keeping in view that India is an independent nation with a rich history, cultural diversity, and commitment to democratic values and general well-being. One of the basic aims of education is to nurture in the learner a sound mind and strong values driven character.
Learners should be educated to uphold the democratic values, respect the Rules of Law, and support humanitarian ideals; they should engage in healthy practices to be able to develop robust and healthy physique, learn how to think for themselves and be creative. We aim at nurturing responsible citizens with a sense of patriotism and a global perspective. In principle, education is a learning progression to help learners explore their innate capacity and talents as well as develop their potential to improve and enhance sustainability of their living environment.
The CBSE curriculum provides an adequate experience on the guiding principles of constitution which reflect a commitment to democracy and the values of equality, justice, freedom, concern for others well-being, secularism, respect for human dignity and human rights.
Learning to learn and the willingness to unlearn and relearn are important as means of responding to new situations in a flexible and creative manner. The curriculum emphasizes on the processes of constructing knowledge and provides the means and opportunities to enhance the child’s creative expression and the capacity for aesthetic appreciation.
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation is an education system newly introduced by Central Board of Secondary Education in India, for students of sixth to tenth grades. The main aim of CCE is to evaluate every aspect of the child during their presence at the school. This is believed to help reduce the pressure on the child during/before examinations as the student will have to sit for multiple tests throughout the year, of which no test or the syllabus covered will be repeated at the end of the year, whatsoever. The CCE method is claimed to bring enormous changes from the traditional chalk and talk method of teaching provided it is implemented accurately
