Both of my children attended PEC. My son from kindergarten to 6th and my daughter from kindergarten until 4th. The school was great at first, but over the years it has gone down hill. The school allows late work and their discipline is just not there. There was a student that threatened to stab another ...  Read more

My children have been going to this school since kindergarten. It has been a great experience. I still love the school but the quality seems to have gone down a bit since Mrs. Butler left. She made sure she was seen and her family was involved as well on events the school put on. I'm not even sure what ...  Read more

My child attended this school last year but will not be returning for the upcoming school year. The classroom was unorganized and chaotic which made it difficult for my child to learn. My child had to deal with constant bullying and when I spoke with the principal regarding the situation I was given ...  Read more

My fourth grader just took an extended day field trip ...  Read more

My son has attended PEC for ten years and have not had any complaints. This school has been a blessing to my son and our family.

What I have found about this school leadership starts from the top and the person who is princple there truly lacks that great quality. Unfortunately my children still attend but looking to putting them in another school. Some teachers, school nurse, other staff members truly lack respect & safety ...  Read more

I waited 2 years to get my daughter in this school and I continue to be VERY impressed by the teacher dedication, hard work and push to ensure each child is doing their best. Prior to this my child was part of a school in the local school district and I can tell you, we are NOT going back to that. This ...  Read more

This was a great school ten years ago but not now. It has really gone downhill and fast. Alot of great teachers have left for other schools. My kids attend this school and it did not work for them. I placed my children in another charter school close by and they are at the top of the class and are two ...  Read more

I waited two years for my daughter to be able to attend PEC. She's been there since 2nd grade and there is a world of difference from her prior charter school to PEC in regard to management, staff attitute, organization and communication with parents. I appreciate that the school has high standards ...  Read more
