I love the teachers and staff and the way they go above and beyond what is expected of them. They do whatever it takes to connect with students and to keep the kids excited about learning.
Pedley has improved tremendously over the last 3 years! All of the other parents who have complained in the past need to give Pedley another chance. The campus has new grass, a gate around the perimeter, and a new marquee. The teachers are fantastic, and the parent involvement has improved. For those of you complaining about the lack of parent involvement need to get involved and do something about it! There is minimal discipline problems, and the bullying is almost non existant. I am very happy with the education and experiences my children get at this school.
Pedley has incidents of fights breaking out. Big kids are picking on little kids, and the district itself is very hard to work with.
It saddens me that we can have schools with so little and others with so much. Do to the lack of support this school receives in areas such as; updating class rooms, beautification of school grounds, student tools and activities along with the overcrowded issue, I have had to move my child to a private school. Public schools in nearby areas have taken in many students so children won't have to go to Pedley because Pedley severely lacks in basic tools and programs. The lack of parent involvement has significantly reduced the children's learning ability and scholastically this school is behind. I praise the teachers and leadership of this school, it must be hard.
My children went to this school when they were younger and my grandson attends now. They have great teachers. They offer after school programs for reading and math to help those students that are behind or need a little extra help. They offer band twice a week. They have had after-school sports in the past, but are not offering them right now. Level of parent involvement was low, but after the new principal came this year parent involvement is growing and being encouraged.
My son attended first grade here in 2004-2005 school year. The teacher was wonderful, but was severely limited by resources available to the local schools. My son was not challenged at all by his homework or classwork. His weekly homework was completed in 20 minutes. There was an attempt to get parents involved, but I was unable to observe any consistent parent involvement at this school. In the end, we actually moved to another town to get my children out of this school.
I have two children at Pdley for a year and half and for the most part there is only a hand full of good teacher, and the school is full of children that bully and the school does not try hard enough to stop this problem.
The first grade teacher was wonderful to my son, but the curriculum is intensly limited. There is no music, gym, art or computers at this school. He completes his homework for the WEEK in 5 minutes. Although I asked, no additional work was given to him.
i wish the school had better food,its brought in and its very high in fat,carbs,and sodium.they also need to stop making cinco da mayo such a big deal and other holidays more important.not every one celebrates cino da mayo.
