Piper is an awesome school! Mr. Fontanetta retired this school year, which I was a little sad about, because he was such a great principal. He took the time and effort to know all the students names, always greeted the parents every morning. Always went above and beyond. He will be missed. The school also has a lot of nice perks. The kids get to use laptops and ipads. Every class has a white board. It's a very close nit community school. Everyone has a great attitude...parents and staff. I love this school.
Piper's principle, Mr. Fontanetta, is very involved with students and takes pride in the school. He is trying to instill this all the Piper families and get them more involved. The school has modern technology and teaching methods that are vital to the success of our kids.
Piper is a great family friendly school. The district has just given all schools new technology resources, the students love the new smartboards and their new computer labs. The Principal is very caring and works very hard, he remembers kids names, which for kids in elementary school is awesome. They are starting to get more after school activites as well. They do a great job with limited space and resources.
This is an awsome school love the teachers and the principal knows all the children very well which is great, it makes my child feel important and cared about. Although i think we need a better plan to help the kids who are having a little trouble getting the lessons taught by the teachers. There needs to be a little more one on one. Oh one more thing the office staff are awsome!
Time for an update on Piper School. In 2005 we put 6th grade in the middle school which made more room for k-5. The school, teachers, principal and staff are fabulous. You couldn't ask for more. The music teacher has brought the school to a new level. With Echo classes for the advance student and special ed teachers for the children who need help you get a well rounded education for all. You will love the family feel of the school. The principal knows every student and really cares about them. They have some after school activities but no sports program due to cutbacks. Parents envolvement in their child's education is great but they are not much for volunteering for the PTA. You will be happy in this school.
Mr. Fontanetta has really turned this school around. He cares about the children, parents and the staff. My sons have really enjoyed the school and has gotten a great education. The teachers are all great and most have their masters degree. We also have some new teachers that are bringing fresh ideas to the school. The music teacher has put on of the greatest performances I've seen with grade school children. You will love this school.
Piper school is a very family oriented school. There teachers are the best you could ever want for your children. But above all I appreciate the learning curriculum because it pushes kids to learn more and to learn that learning is fun. A kids brain is like a sponge the more information to give the the more they will retain in thier heads. I think that is fabulous. sincerely, MEC
