Peach Hill has a great principal, who really works with the families to make the school a great environment for every child. They use the Core Knowledge curriculum, which is used in many private schools throughout the country, so you really are getting a private school-level education at a public school. Great school spirit, a feeling of community and parent involvement have given Peach Hill a great reputation, leading many parents to choose PH over their neighborhood school.
I love the teachers and the principal is so committed to the school and all students, and open to parents. Love the Core Knowledge.
We have caring teachers that care about our students and prepare them not only academically but emotionally to succeed in life.
The staff is great and very helpful. I have nothing to EVER complain about. The kids are happy and so am I. We have a great community that always helps to make us a great school!
The principal, teachers, and staff go above and beyond to help the students of Peach succeed.
Ever since our son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes almost 2 years in Kindergarten,Peach Hill Academy has gone up and beyond to make sure John is safe at school.Training teachers,aides and other faculty members about diabetes care. My husband and I are very thankful and blessed that our boys attend Peach Hill Academy. There are not enough words to express our gratitude to Mrs. Welch and her amazing faculty!
I love Peach HIll for many reasons. The principal, Mrs. Welch is fantastic! She cares about every child and is always looking for ways to make learning fun and exciting! The teachers are warm, and professional and truly care about making a difference in my child's education. The best part about Peach Hill is that it is the ONLY school who is committed to Core Knowledge Cirriculum. This cirriculum is deisgend to help each child learn and build their learning from what tey alrready know -- core knowledge. Knowledge builds on knowledge. Children learn new knowledge by building on what they already know. Only a school system that clearly defines the knowledge and skills required to participate in each successive grade can be excellent and fair for all students. For this reason, the Core Knowledge Sequence provides a clear outline of content to be learned grade by grade. This sequential building of knowledge not only helps ensure that children enter each new grade ready to learn, but also helps prevent the many repetitions and gaps that characterize much current schooling.
They have the most awesome teachers who truly care about the children and the curriculum
I really like the Core Knowledge program at this school - Google it to find out more. Its excellent. The curriculum of Core Knowledge is especially helpful if you have twins - as each class teaches very similar content. One of my children has Dyslexia - and I have found the process of getting her help very frustrating - but I think that is a problem with public schools, not this particular school itself.
This is a fantastic school. I now have my daughter entering second grade and her progress has been amazing. Her reading level improved substantially and I can't believe how well she reads for a 6 year old. Teachers are wonderful and this community is very involved with their children in every way!
This truly is a fabulous school. I wish I could clone mrs barragan, my daughter's k teacher, and have her forever. Mrs. Welch,princ, is the best, very involved, committed to strong readers and has the energy/enthusiasm of a cheerleader (way to go, mrs. Welch.) Teachers are excellent, enjoy the kids. Discipline/behavior/school pride are outstanding. We had to relocate away from peach hill may 2006 and I'm still grieving the loss! If you're moving into this district, worry no more. All the schools are good.
I love this school! There is a lot of school pride from students, teachers and parents. Parents love to volunteer. I am one of them, and I am amazed at what they learn on a daily basis. The Principal (Mrs. Welch) is very caring and personable, she often has treats for the kids when they accomplish milestones in their reading minutes. My child loves to read. Core knowledge allows the students to learn about different subjects (at their grade level) and continue to build on what they already know as they get older - geography, art, history, literature, music - all by participating in related activities that are hands on and very fun. My child is definitely thriving thanks to this school.
This is the best school you can send youir children to! The staff is fantastic as well as the principal! Fantastic art program!
I can't tell you how happy I have been with the progress my children have made at Peach Hill. I love the school not only for the teachers and curriculum but for the unity of the parents. To me it is like one big family. I can't say enough about what Peach Hill means to me!
