My daughter was bullied her 9th grade year by not only students, but teachers as well. The kids are snobby and cruel. The teachers were somewhat helpful though some were not. The administration staff was not very helpful to my daughter either. It's not a good school and I won't send any of my children there again.
I really flourished and learned a lot in this school. Music opened up a part of myself I didn't know existed. I found something I could be good at and caused a desire within me to excell at whatever I tried. I developed the study habits I needed to be successful in this school. It wasn't an easy time for me, but I had teachers that REALLY cared and looked out for me. That made a difference in who I am today and which paths I followed as different things were offered me.
I have a child at Peet who is constantly complaining about the bathrooms and school. I thought it was just teenage grouchy-ness until I saw for myself, the entire school is very dirty and the children there are postively cruel, my child has been beaten up there uncountable times. I don't believe my child will attend this school next year.
I have a child who will be leaving Peet this year and going to the high school. Our experiences at this school have been awesome! The teachers truly care about the education of all students and are constantly working together to adapt their teaching strategies as the needs of their students change. The school leadership is second to none! Having been actively involved in various school activities over the past three years I have found that there is a place for everyone to help...from students to parents to the business community. Peet JHS has a wonderful learning environment that includes not only the basic curriculum, but music, athletics and the arts.
