This is really a great school. My daughter has thrived. No school is perfect so I have had few small issues here. Recommended

The new principal lacks professionalism and does not show interest in children with special needs.

I have had one child that attended Pepperell Elementary a few years ago and I now have another child at the school this year. I love the atmosphere of the school. The teachers, staff, and administration care about the students and show that every day in the way they teach and lead the school on a daily basis. Great job PES!!
