Peters Colony Elementary School It's freaky that the teachers all wear the same thing. It's like they are trying to prove to the largely hispanic population that they are in control of their children, they are extremely strict, not allowing parents in the building during school hours. Also pick up ...  Read more

My daughter who is currently in 4th grade has been going to the school since Kinder. It is a great school with dedicated teachers and a wonderful and caring administration staff.

The staff is very committed to the success of the students. I like that they have a Science discovery class as part of their specials rotation.

I didn't like the system they used to pick up the kids after school. It was always congested. Not enough fun time, poor teacher communication. I am moving this month so my son goes to a better school.

This school year has been a big dissapointment. Our Kindergartner was not given the attention that she needed. She is a child that requires more than your average amount of adult attention and praise. This was not provided. Due to this she had trouble keeping focused on the days lessons and therefore ...  Read more

My oldest has been with this school since kindergarten and this is her last year. My youngest has been at this school since kindergarten and is in 2nd grade. I know the Principal, the teachers and the staff and each one of them cares about the children. Each of my children's teachers know they can talk ...  Read more
