St. Peterís Junior College and Elementary School

After over fifteen years of offering services to the adult population of the island wishing to further their education, St. Peterís College was forced to close its doors on Thursday July 19th. Reliable sources have confirmed to The San Pedro Sun that the reason for closure by the Ministry of Education was due to failure to comply with the standards of the Ministry of Education as it pertains to the operations of a High School. The institution, which was being run by Mr. Frank NuŮez, was officially inaugurated on Friday, 20th December, 1996.

It is understood that to accommodate the students affected by the closure, the San Pedro High School has agreed to provide night time classes. As for the Elementary School, St. Peterís will be allowed to continue operations through the school year 2012-2013 with certain conditions.

The San Pedro Sun contacted Mr. NuŮez for a comment regarding the developments. He indicated he would do so after a meeting with parents on Wednesday July 25th. We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.

I wonder if the kids attending the school are being best served by this closure...What is the story behind the story, well intentioned and well founded whistle blowing?

I'm not hearing that the standards of education arent being met, I'm hearing that the recordkeeping sucks. As I understand it there are few enough seats for a good education as it is. Yes no?

Amanda? Tim? others with kids on the island?
