PTO does a great job of supporting the students and staff. I personally have a son with Autism and I can't be more happy with the support my son gets. Peeples does a great job of balancing academics, character development and fun. My kids have gone to a number of schools in GA and this is by far the best school and system I have experienced.

Peeples Elementary is a great community of kind and caring teachers, smiling administrative staff, strong and supportive leadership and wonderful parental involvment. Coach Binkley and Coach Friday are extraordinary physical education instructors with hearts of gold who truly want each child to achieve his or her maximum potential. The music teacher Ms. Stadelmeyer goes far beyond expectation and works diligently to ignite a passion for music in her students. The teachers that we have had the privilege of working with thus far are well trained, caring and have adjusted quite well with the growing class sizes so common in many schools. If you are looking for a private school education that not only emphasizes academic excellence but truly strives to develop good character in each student and teach good morals to students, don't pay for a private school, send them to Peeples.

Peeples is a great place! The staff is friendly and works hard to make sure kids are reaching their full potential. When a student struggles, the school provides extra help. The PTO is actively involved in the school.

We have our two children at Peeples and couldn't be happier! The school is very well run by the administration and all the teachers are dedicated and very accessible. The extra curricular activities offered by the school are outstanding as well. Programs like Little Dribblers, Cultural Arts Week, Juggling Team, Running Club, Walk from School, etc. just to name a few, make a difference and are greatly appreciated!

Wouldn't want to be anywhere else in Fayette county. Great teachers and administrators. My child feels safe and supported. She loves her school and loves going to school. What more can a parent ask for?

My school is Peeples Elementary and I believe that the staff is great. They seem to really care for the students. I have been in the school for over 8 years now and things are changing because of BOE changes but the school has maintained a positive atmosphere through it all. I am grateful for the experiences we have had at Peeples.

I think the best praise I can give the school is that I have two young sons who actually ENJOY going! They learn a lot academically, but still have time during recess and specials to make friends. My two children love all the 'specials' classes which include art, music, and PE class.

Awesome! The teachers and administration are so welcoming our children are thrilled to be rockets. We have signature events that everyone looks forward to like Cultural Arts Week, Spring Fling, Chorus concerts, Little Dribblers, Juggling team just to name a few. Mrs. Roberson and Mrs. Blodgett do a great job staying in touch with parents and children on important decisions affecting our school. So thankful for them.

Peeples Elementary School is TERRIFIC! The teachers are always available to students and parents. The principal is always visible in the school. Students who need additional help in reading and math are giving this help in the class as well as in pull out class. The school is very clean and looks brand new.

Peeples Elementary school couldn't have been more welcoming when our county recently closed 5 schools & merged our entire school with theirs. The spirit rings through the halls as well as the friendly staff making sure our kids transition well this school year. The excellent education our kids will receive at Peeples along with making new friends will last a lifetime!

Peeples Elementary that is full of dedicated teachers, staff and parents. Everyone cares very much for each other and teaching the children. There are so many people that give back to the school. Families devote a lot of time and energy to make sure the school had the support out needs to provide an environment that is rich for learning. It is very difficult to find another school where teachers are so dedicated and love being at the school. This is the only school where the teachers are willing to give up items given to them than give up things that are for the students. Parents are also willing to volunteer their time for anything the school needs. The children really love going to school and learning new things. My daughter is always excited about going to school and she hates it when she has to miss a day.

I had children at this school for eight years, since the day it opened. It was a wonderful experience for the whole family, all the way around -- great teachers, wonderful administration, open door policy, appropriate curriculum, adequate extra-curricular activities and just a great environment. I'm thrilled that my kids had such a positive elementary experience.

I have 2 children at Peeples and moved to this area because of the great ratings and test scores. So far we are very pleased with the school and the staff. Public schools are not what they should be, but this one is an exception!

My child just finished Kindergarten at Peeples, and I am very impressed with the quality of education he's receiving. The teachers focus on academics and encourage children to reason and use decision-making and problem solving techniques. Art, music and P.E. classes are integrated into their day, and the school offers an excellent After School Program. The children can play board games, sports, do their homework, play on the playground, etc. For a fee, children can take extracurricular classes at the school, such as karate, art and writing to name a few. The school also has a great media center and computer center. The level of parental involvement in the school is phenomenal. On any given day, at least one parent would be volunteering in his classroom (this was in addition to the para-professional and student teacher). Parents are encouraged to visit the classrooms and can even go eat lunch with their child.

Peeples is awesome! The school is very academically focused but well balanced with extra-curricular and co-curricular activites. Sandra Watson runs a tight ship but the test scores and student achievements speak for themselves. The fine arts program is awesome though I wish chorus could be extended to more than just 5th grade. Overall though, I have had 2 children in Peepels and it has been very positive for both of them.
