My husband and I have been very happy with this school. Our daughter transfused from Frontier this year and we have seen a world of difference. Mr.Gross is a patient, kind teacher who we have seen genuinely cares about our child's education well been. We have open communication which allows us to work together and we never feel kept out of the loop. Something we never experience at Frontier. After all, are not our children's teachers also raising them, being that they are with them half of their waking hours?
PTS achieves "A" Rating! As a parent, I could not be happier with the progress and the day to day environment of this school. The quality of the faculty and leadership of the principal are some of the main reasons for the success. Unlike other schools, their is a level of accountability expected not only of staff but parents and students alike. The school like "drama" that is usually present in many public schools is minimized and quickly resolved which allows for a positive learning environment. Very good group of parents who assist and partake in school activities, although there is always room for improvement in this area. Despite its significant growth, the school still maintains its core values. The Peoria Unified School district has a reputation for good schools and why many move to this area, this type of school and atmosphere is a model for others to achieve.
My son had never been to school before he entered Kindergarten this year. He is now excelling and even teaches his 4 year old sister about Core Values. This a fabulous school and we can't wait for her to go.
What makes PTS different? This was our question prior to enrolling this year. The uniforms, Core Values, and parent involvement are all factors but since being at PTS would have to say it is also majority the atmosphere. Kids will be kids and do silly things that kids do, but there is NO bullying, foul language or disrespect in the classrooms. When you walk in the hallways and see the middle school students the girls are not wearing make up, distracting hair colors or inappropriate clothing. You never see boy/girl holding hands or anything of the like. PUSD provides a solid education for all their schools but,by far, PTS is a winner for the district. This should be the model for all schools.

Space is very limited. No camping out on the school grounds. We welcome the graduating class of 2025. Experience the Peoria Tradition.
Wonderful school - love that it goes through 8th grade next year and the small school environment. Our children feel very comfortable and safe. Nice to see students not wearing inappropriate clothing like most public school.
A school of CHOICE. All of the families choose PTS as their childrens school, it is not a zoned school, it is a school of choice. The growth from the first school year starting with 57 students to the second year of over 220 students (K-7th) is exciting. Solid curriculum and Core Values that are lessons to students. PTS is not only educating, but they are teaching students to be compassionate, kind, respectful children. The communication from our teachers, administration and booster club is wonderful. The parent involvement is the highest I have seen at a school.
When your child comes home from school and says, "I love school", you know you've found a winner! The principal knows and interacts with all the children. The teachers are all united and work to make sure the parents know what's going on. The high involvement from the parents also makes this a great environment. I know of no other school that teaches great values as well as school curriculum. I have students ranging from kindergarten to 7th grade and they all love it here.
Our family found the best school in the area. Our children enjoy going to school and love the "school family" environment. We are glad to be part of the school and see why it is growing at such a rapid rate. School actually goes through 7th grade this year and will go through 8th grade next school year.
Thank you PUSD for providing a private/charter type school through the public school district. Principal is very involved with the students, teachers are excellent and heavy parent participation. Love the Core Values that are taught. No need to look for charter/private school where you will have book fees, etc.
This is the most wonderful school in the northwest valley. My child has never been happier to go to school everyday. I can't believe that this is a public school. It has a real private school feel to it and the students love it.
