This school is Peoria's hidden gem! For the high standard of education that children receive the tuition is very good value, compared to other States and nearby cities. Our children have thrived during their years at this school. Small class sizes have provided the opportunity for individual and personalized learning and friendships are close and strong. The population is very diverse and international and it is wonderful how events celebrate this. All the faculty and staff are wonderful without exception. I cannot recommend this school highly enough!
Each child is treated as an individual and is given extra help in areas that can use enhancement as well as those areas that the child excels. Each child is unique and so is his/her learning experience at Peoria Academy.
Students are taught to encourage and support one another, appreciate diversity and differences, and act with the utmost integrity and respect for peers and adults. One small example is that I'm always impressed when I walk my children into the school when a middle-schooler holds the door open for me.
Both my son and my daughter have progressed at a faster rate than I anticipated at Peoria Academy. The teachers have creative curriculum that keeps the kids engaged and definitely care about the students and get to know each child as an individual.
Peoria Academy is such an amazing school! We are so glad we made the decision to send our kids there. There is an Open House on April 12th from 9 - 11:30 am...if you have children ages 3 (pre-k) through 8th grade, please check it out! It is well worth the investment in a solid educational foundation for your kids as well as amazing extracurricular opportunities from faculty and staff that genuinely care about your kids.
