The Peirce experience reflects a community spirit and commitment to learning. The curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities foster a sense of responsibility; pride and sense of belonging. It takes a village...and Peirce has a fabulous village with its teachers, families and staff.

My daughter started the Peirce in Kindergarten and my son started in 3rd grade. I have never met a group of caring teachers, faculty or staff members under one roof! The school environment is more like a family setting we all know each other and we all pitch in to help each other whether it is regarding a personal matter or rallying around our school. I feel really privileged to be a part of the Peirce school community!

The coomunity that makes Peirce School work is amazing. I have never had my child at a school that was so loved and taken care of by those who both run it and attend it. It really is a model for what a community can make a school and how a school can rally a community. It is a little nest of love and concern that nurtures its nestlings until they are ready to fly the coop as it were

Peirce has a great spirit of volunteerism and a strong school ethic. 'Peirce Pride' is teaching the children about core values. Our principal, Karen Hartley, is a cheerful and devoted presence, and our teachers are a very talented and dedicated group. Recent initiatives include the school's science garden, the bottle & can recycling drive, the 'Galatic Travels' reading fair, the annual PTO spaghetti dinner and talent school, to name a few. Peirce is a small elementary school with a great big heart.

I love Peirce because my children arrive with a smile on their face each day and leave with that same smile. They learn new things all the time while having fun at the same time. The teachers and pricipal are always friendly and helpful, along with most of the staff. Keep up the great job!

At a time when most people lament the large, impersonal nature of elementary schools, the Peirce School is, as one parent from another town elementary school put it 'the best kept secret in Arlington.' The small size, wonderful supportive teachers who really get a chance to know their kids, and administrative staff that actually know your name and who your child is, all make this neighborhood school the envy of others in town. The school community feels welcome to be really involved, and truely put their efforts where their mouth is. From the volunteer landscaping to the friendly janitorial staff, the Peirce School is really a gem.

The staff is awesome. My son is in a special ed program and performing at grade level thanks to the level of support given him at this school. From the principal to the janitor everyone goes above and beyond the call of duty to help the kids be successful. The parent community has been very welcoming and supportive of the special ed programs at Peirce as well as very involved in the school activities. We've had a great 3 years so far and look forward to the coming ones at Peirce!
