Queen of Peace was established in 1962 by the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters. It used St. Laurence High School for the 1962-63 school year due to construction delays, and began classes in its own newly built facility in September 1963.[2][3] The school closed on 30 June 2017 due to an extended enrollment decline and financial shortfalls.[4][5]
