Peregrine Elementary School
Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

Because Peregrine is Reggio, the students play a big part in how they learn which helps the teachers to keep them excited about learning and to create inquisitive students who love to learn.

The teachers take a real interest in each student as an individual and they focus on finding fun and interesting ways to help them learn. They do a great job emphasizing project based learning and the students play a huge part in helping to decide projects they would like to work on. The students are actually excited to go to science class, to work on their projects!

Peregrine has been a second home for my daughter for the last 10 years. Here she has been allowed to safely explore the world, and establish her place in it. She's been introduced to Hinduism,Hobbes vs. Lockeian theory, Don Quixote, percentages, healthy eating, climate change and photosynthesis to name a few topics. The teachers know and respect children and the child's voice, intelligence. In turn, the child develops a love of learning, and a keen sense of who they are. I appreciate the teachers and administration for creating this special nurturing environment.

It takes a rare visionary to create a school. The energy and love for children are that of a parent but multiplied many-fold. Lorie Hammond is this person. My child is on first name basis with her, and they have a relationship due to their shared love of the school. My lucky child will carry Lorie with her out into the world.

Much is asked of teacher in this environment. There is a nimbleness or creativity in their planning. Inquiry fostered by the children but stimulated by the teachers drives many of the projects.

Develops grit: Agree

Because the teachers know the student, and his/her work so well, the teachers know what the student is capable of, and students are asked to reach. Finding the motivation for each student is a riddle which morphs over time.

Respect for others, for the environment, for science, for differing ideas, for other cultures: a hearty yes.

Peregrine Elementary School
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Recognition of the disadvantaged, the weak or the under represented is important to the school. Taking on projects to support other children is embraced by the children and institutionally. A single student may put up a sign to collect goods for the poor, and soon the lobby is filled with material. Kindness, true kindness, as compared to the superficial compliment of one's shoes is valued. Older children are paired with younger children in mentoring roles. Listening is valued.

Yes, there certainly is an effort to create parity in the classroom where everyone has a voice, even the quietest.

Great student to teacher ratios, healthy lunch program, preschool curriculum includes co-teaching in Spanish, option to include Mandarin Chinese in pre-K level, play based program focusing on science and art, available after school programs in music/STEM programs/dance/soccer, and caring teachers who are there because they love what they do!!!
