We were so unhappy at this school. Very unorganized and received late notice for many events. As a split household, the teachers did a poor job communicating with both parents and even treated my ex spouse and I differently based on opinions. Very unprofessional and my children will not go back.
I have 2 children at Peakview. Both my husband and I couldn't be happier with the teachers that we have had so far. The staff is amazing-the love they have for the children shines through. Both of our children are happy and excelling in the classroom!
My family was very disappointed with the quality of education my son received, so we transferred him to a charter school. When he started at Peakview, he was ahead of most of his kindergarten class. Our big letdown came at parent-teacher conferences. We were told that when he was tested at the beginning of the school year, he had met all goals so he wasn't retested. How can you measure progress, then? We feel he was pushed aside until the majority of the class was on the same level and he ended up losing some of his advantage. I loved the school, but feel his teacher was lazy.
Peakview has gone from year-round to traditional this past year. Even after the big change, this school is still incredible for my children. The staff is very strong and really care about their students. My kiddos rave about the specials (art music PE and tech). The principal and office staff are accesible and friendly.
We have had three children go through Peakview and the current principal (this is her 3rd year) is the most open and accesable yet. We see some very effective inovations to help the children achieve which the previous pricipals seemed afraid to try.
I had a student here '94-99 and currently have one enrolled this school year. Because enrollment is down and funding is effected I think it may have lost some quality. I think it is still a good school, but avg compared to other elementary schools in newer neighborhoods.
I love this school. Wow what an awesome staff. They are such a fantastic group of people!
The school is great! The only complaint I have is the mixing of 4th and 5th graders in one class. This causes problems when 5th graders try to mingle with 4th graders; it causes many social conflicts between the children. The program would be improved if this area was corrected.
I think this is a wonderful school except for the principal. I have had experience with and have heard poor things about her through other parents and teachers as well. She has no skill with working with teachers and I would highly recommend the school if she were not the principal!
