If the tone of leadership is set by the principal, it is that there is no individuality recognized, the principal runs this school like a boot camp, teachers have no say in what or how to address children or parents.

This school Overall does not encourage development of child's confidence or strengths. Some teachers are good at going the extra mile for involvement with special after school programs. (Music programs)

They seem to want to teach the average child. Children having problems or needing accelerated work are not accommodated.

Amount of homework: Neutral

If a child has parents that can't or won't help them or make it possible for them to do homework, the child pays the price. This school prefers stay at home moms. Some activities are scheduled for stay at home mother in mind.

My son is a 4th grader in 2013-14. Since entering kindergarten at Peterson, he has had 4 classroom teachers with at least 20 years' experience each, and a brand new teacher who was fabulous. The teachers and administration work well together and are very creative at figuring out ways to get kids more individual attention for subjects they struggle with. They're even trying a program that pairs older kids with younger kids who have behavioral issues so they can be role models. They're using paras all over the school to improve one-on-one teaching time, turning even large closets into classrooms. I am active in the PTO because I want to help this school remain great. Kansas schools are struggling financially because of the economy and Brownback tax cuts; they need financial resources for personnel and equipment to get this job done. I am very grateful for the dedicated staff at Peterson.

My oldest started at Peterson in the fall of 2007 after a move from California; they were nothing but helpful and receptive. After two and half years we are still inlove with this school. My second child started K there this past school year and the teachers were AMAZING. They know their families by name and are very concerned with their students well being. I could not recommend a better school.
