I am a teacher and military spouse . I have worked in many schools . Ppsel staff spend large amounts of time and energy tracking student growth. We do this because that is how we can really evaluate our own teaching practices. We really love our students and families and we don't leave our jobs at the school doors when we leave.
my children go not attend this school, however I live very close to it, and it is filthy. The playground is mediocre at best. I also feel like the kids I have met that do attend this school are behind.
PPSEL is a fantastic school. The classes are small. The teachers work with the students at the levels of development that that they are at. The character traits of the school are Respect, Compassion, Integrity, Craftmanship, and Self Discipline. These are all good qualities for any person to strive for.
Great environment for my son! The staff is wonderful! Keep up the amazing work!
My son has been with this school for 4 years now and has enjoyed every bit of it. He adores his classmates, teacher and displays his pride and respect for the school. As a parent, I appreciate that parent involvement is highly encouraged; you don't see that often at other schools. We will be PPSEL fans for a long time coming and will definitely be bring my other children when time comes. Thank you PPSEL!!!
There is such a sense of community at our school. We are starting at the beginning, Pre-K, and couldn't be more happy with the staff, the teachers and the kids. PPSEL is great!
I love how the passion for teaching is displayed in all the teachers, Principal and workers. It develops a great example of Community, Integrity, Compassion and Respect. A very interactive school to help all learning styles to succeed. Thanks to all who love to teach.
The educational program at this school capitalizes on the natural curiosity and creativity of its students. Exploration on local field trips round out the educational program. The students are expected to use critical thinking, along with their hands-on experience during these field trips to grasp and understand the concepts presented in the classroom. My child has never had such an engaging educational experience until now! Go PPSEL!!
The teachers truly want to be there and how cool is hands on learning!
Staff, staff, staff they are the best!! Always keeping me informed on my childs progress!!!!
This is our first year at this school and we love it. We chose to attend this school because my son's needs were not met at the neighborhood school. He is several grade levels ahead of his grade in most areas and this school differentiates to meet his needs. He comes home with books at his reading level and is allowed to attend math lessons at the grade level that is appropriate for him (not his chronological grade). His teacher makes sure he is challenged. The school is small and encourages a sense of community among the children and teachers. The teachers all seem very commited and children are encouraged to be active participants in their education. The main weakness of this school is that the facility is not permanent- they are working on that. Hopefully a permanent location will open up the opportunity for afterschool programs.
My daughter has a lot of one on one with the teacher and is learning extremely well. The principal is great and loves the children. I find this to be one of the best schools available. My daughter is writing and reading, she enjoys having music,art, and gym. I would like to see more after school activities. I get to work with the school every month.
