I have had the displeasure of attending Peoria Academy for 4 years, and every year, I hated it. My parents were unaware of my displeasure, because I never told them. Anyways, at Peoria Academy, I did not learn a single thing. In second grade, the staff was teaching us the alphabet, while I was already reading chapter books! The teachers were nice, but they had no experience, and I learned nothing new! Also, my parents stayed away from the community set there; the parents (and students) were all stuck up and snobbish, and, quite frankly, rude. Additionally, I spent more time at that school doing nonsense and playing on the computers there than I learned!! Please, many of my friends decided to switch from Peoria Academy to a public school- don't make the mistake of sending your child to PA and wasting hundreds of dollars of hard earned money. I switched from PA to a public school, Charter Oak, and I loved it! I learned so much more there, and the teachers had years of experience, and there was a balance between very intelligent students and average students. I felt welcome, which is why public schools beat PA anytime!!
