Our previous elementary school was rated 9/10. The classes were similar in size (approx. 20-21 kids per class), the campus only a few years old. Many kids left kindergarten unable to read, little emphasis on Phonics, there was some fun science and social studies but no phys ed and teachers had to rotate grades periodically. It was not a great experience. Peavine might have a lower overall rating (for now) and the campus is older, but it is well maintained and the staff is phenomenal. From the support staff who know each of the kds and make everyone feel so welcome, to the principal who is a visible, accessible presence, the active & fun PTA, to the outstanding teachers, Peavine is top notch. The curriculum is challenging yet fun, the teachers creative, resources available for all children. The teachers are open to a collaboration with parents and the kids are thriving. Kids get frequent smaller breaks as opposed to one longer lunch (this has been proven more effective for managing behaviors and retaining learned materials). The students alternate PE, computer lab, and music class. The school puts their money where their mouth is: I witnessed a child being harassed by a bigger kid - the school intervened at once and ensured the problem was resolved immediately and permanently. We are so very pleased we took a leap of faith and came to Peavine. Our kids are enjoying school and we are quite pleased with the quality of education they're receiving.

This is one of the best schools I've sent any of my children to. My son loves it! The staff and faculty are all about the kids and their safety and education while still making the school experience fun. We are entering the 3rd year my son is a student and we look forward to it!

If you can find a better elementary school in washoe county, go for it! I believe that this school is awesome. The teachers, staff and parents make this a place where my children want to go and learn and have fun at the same time.
