Peck Elementary School5

This is an outstanding school. My son has been going there since kindergarten and I have nothing but good things to say about this school, the staff and its outstanding principal. They promote learning, respect of self and others and the teachers of all grades work really well together. I have been volunteering once a week since my son was in first grade and I highly recommend this place.
My son is going in to 3rd grade and started at Peck in kindy. He is ADHD and Bi-polar so needless to say he has had some behavioral obstacles to overcome. Everyone at Peck (and I mean everyone - from cafeteria ladies to building engineer to secretaries, principal and teachers) have invested in my son and his success in school. They have all worked with me on developing strategies to help him succeed. I am an involved parent and as much as I think that helps my son do well in school, I honestly believe everyone at Peck would help him along no matter my level of involvement.
This school no longer puts an effort into enriching a child and promoting their growth. They would rather teach children that are doing well on their own because it is less work for them. Children that may need extra support do not receive it and are passed to the next grade to become someone else's 'problem'. There is no room in this school for a child with special needs- that is more than they want- only 'perfect 'kids allowed!
This school is so great, my child loves it! But she has been talking about a few disrupptions! (The folowing teachers) Ms.Rotola, Ms.Garamone, Ms.D, and Mrs.Colley! If you can make those changes righ away, this school would be perfect!
I believe Peck is an excellent school. I have 2 children there (K and 2nd)and have had very positive interactions with the Principal, teachers, administrative staff, and teachers. This school scores well on the CSAP and also has great involvement from both the families and general community. I find this to be a welcoming place for my children to attend.
