PEORIA, Ill -- Students and families at the Peoria Academy are celebrating their wide-range of cultures.
Thursday night, the school came together for a Multi-Cultural night.

Jane Prest said she is glad her child's school offers such a diverse community.
"There's a wide diversity of children in Peoria, especially, because of different companies and through the world, throughout the U.S.," said Prest. "It's really nice for our children to mix."
