There are a lot of bad kids, but as long as you avoid them and pick the right friends you'll be fine. I'll never forget my Peary ...  Read more

I believe the staff at Peary M. S., Teachers and especially the Administration is doing a great job in educating and guiding my child. I say that especially for the principal who is always deeply involved with most of the activities there. Great Job

Being that this school is being rated by mostly students, I understand why it has three stars. This is the second school year for my son and so far his experience and mine has been HORRIBLE!

Dr. Garrett is the best Principal, she cares about her students and staff. Me and My wife as parents have always felt welcome to the school. My daughter and son, both attended Peary and had a wonderful learning experience.

I'm sorry but as per thinking this school is a school that cares is far from what I've been seeing.

My comment is that Manners ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
