Let me start by saying that my child has attended Peabody since pre-k. The lower grades are an EXCELLENT start for any child. The teachers are what makes this school so wonderful. However, as my child progressed to older grades, the atmosphere and attitude of teacher/faculty started to dwindle. The powers ahead do not care about how the parent feels nor do they care about working with you OR your child. They will lie to your face and smile. Then turn around and do what you asked them not to or what you guys discussed would not be appropriate. Sometimes, things are NOT at all what they seem. This school would be the case here. I wrote a comment before and it got deleted. This makes me wonder how many other parents have commented and their comments were deleted. Let's see if this one doesn't "DISAPPEAR".

I am very impressed with this school for both my kids! They keep parents well-informed, and maintain a caring sense of order.

Yes, the school does have a history of academic excellence. However, if your child has special learning needs and has an individualized education plan, you may be in trouble. As the parent, you can not trust that it will be complied with. Really unfortunate because those who learn differently still deserve the chance to learn and excel!!!

My daughter started pre-k @ Peabody Montessori 2011! I am so happy I chose this school they have far exceeded my expectations! My girl is already reading after being there almost 2 months! They teach the children how to be respectful independent people! When my son is ready for school that is where he will be going! I recommend this school to everyone looking for a great elementary school for their kids!!

I'm a mom proud to say my son attends Peabody Montessori. He has only been there a few years but there is no where else I would rather be. Its so reassuring when your child loves to go to school to see teachers and other staff not scared crying to stay home.

Both of my children attend Peabody Montessori. The oldest has been a student there since Pre-K, she is now in the 6th grade. Peabody is second to none!

My daughter has been going to Peabody Montessori since the first grade. This will be her last year there. She will go to Jr High next year. The teachers at Peabody are the best at teaching our children. I will miss having her attend there.

Not only am I a parent of three Peabody Montessori Students, I am also a teacher at the school. I can honestly say, there is no place we would rather be. We love being a part of the fabulous Peabody Montessori Family. My oldest child still credits her success in Jr. High on the wonderful education she received at Peabody. I still have 2 children attending Peabody, and they both love it. The teachers are all very creative, dedicated and willing to anything to help the students. Every parent should take a tour of our school, before deciding where their children will will be educated.

What can I say? We LOVE Peabody! The faculty and staff are ALL genuinely caring and helpful from the moment you first walk in the door. My daughter just started pre-k, but she really is chalenged every day with new lessons at HER level, not the other kids' levels, and she is able to excel because of this. Her teacher, and the rest of the faculty I have interacted with, is very attentive and conscientious. Peabody is a wonderful school, and I gladly drive out of my way to get her to school every day!

My son has been at Peabody Montessori now for two years and we love it! Not only is Peabody academically an excellent school, it also provides children a healthy social and culturally diverse environment. All teachers, staff, and the principle are very intelligent, caring, and positive. I made a choice between Peabody Montessori and some private schools and as any parent, I was very nervous about the decision of which school my child would attend. I have to say that I have not regreted enrolling him at Peabody at all and I now know that I've made the right decision for my child. He is happy and well ahead in academic skill level when compared to some of his peers attending other schools. He loves his teacher and takes such pride in learning and achieving. I can't wait for my little girl to attend!

My daughter is in pre-k at peabody montessori and she is a very quiet child,respectful,smart,but very shy,the environment is perfect for her it's not the time of school that has unruly student. When you walk in you get a great sense of calm and my daughter's academics are continuing to grow. I believe the staff is very caring. I would suggest changes in the PTO.I kinda got the feeling that it was an organization that was run by parents who had been there for a while and it felt a little like a clique.

My son has been a student at Peabody Montessori since he was in Pre-K and now he is in 2nd grade. Peabody Montessori puts every child first. My son is ADHD and the school recognizes this and is very helpful with him in his learning. This school has a very good parent/school interaction. They keep me very informed and involved in his school work and behavior. I have nothing but positive things to say about the Principal, Facility, and Staff of Peabody Montessori. I am a single mother and cannot afford private schooling at the time my son was to start school. I enrolled my son in Peabody Montessori and could not be happier with my decision. Every school should use the standards and quality of education that Peabody Montessori. Sincerely, Cindy Chauffepied

Let me start by saying that I was determined that my child would receive a quality education and had obtained information on local private academys. At the insistence of a close relative my husband and I toured Peabody and were so impressed that we followed up on the application process for that school. Once our son was accepted our expectations have been met and in fact surpassed. The difference in the educational knowledge my son has gained in pre-k and kindergarten is evident when he is around other children that attend other schools. Not only does he excell academically but he is learning discipline and respect which are character traits that most schools are not concerned with. The staff, both academic and administrative are always cooperative and I cannot say enough positive things about this school. Renee Dugas

This has been a great school for our daughter that is in kindergarden. She is able to work at her learning level. The staff is very up beat and positive. There is also a good repore between the parents and teachers. I would hope more schools would be like this one Mark Myers
