Wonderful School! We fled Minneapolis public schools because of huge class size and extreme behavior issues. We are so thankful that we are now at Peter Hobart. The teachers are top notch. The Principal leads with a warm smile. The SLP school district lets the professionals do their job without a lot of meddling. We love this school, and so do our kids! I give Peter Hobart an A++!

I couldn't be more pleased with Peter Hobart in every way. My oldest son will be in third grade next year and my youngest son will enter Kindergarten. We have been thrilled with the teachers each year and have heard great things about every other teacher in the school. Mr. Johnson, the principal, is amazing with the students. I am very involved in the PTA and love the amount of parent involvement in the school. Every day there are many parents volunteering for various activities. The students have recess and PE every day and have music and art several times a week. It really couldn't be better!

I couldn't be more pleased with my son's kindergarten experience at Peter Hobart. The teacher is thoughtful and well-organized. Principal Johnson is fantastic. I don't know that there are extracurricular activities for kindergarteners, but I don't expect any at this age. I feel blessed that my son is getting his great start at this school.

School is located in middle class suburb to the west of Minneapolis. As of '06, school/district is known for excellent staff, leadership and innovation; teachers encourage to innovate. May change in future. Natl. Blue Ribbon School of Excellence (3 time award winner). District wide, the Spanish Immersion school had a 2006 Minnesota Teacher of the Year, and International Baccalaureate is available at the high school level. Diverse student population. Few discipline problems at the elementary and junior high level; good at the high school level with some issues. Students able to transfer into the district due to Minnesota law allowing cross-district transfers with few denials, which may account for some of this. Strong discipline programs at all schools, truancy is not accepted via Minnesota law and students will be expelled according to progressive discipline programs. Strong support for district by parents, referendum for school funding and reduced class sizes rarely

We are extremely pleased with Peter Hobart. The school encourages parent involvement and the teachers a very approachable. Our kindergartner's teacher is easy to reach and provides us feedback on the progress of our daughter on a regular basis. The principal, Mr Johnson, is also very active on a day to day basis by attending classes and on occasion filling in for a teacher who is out. We couldn't have scripted a better beginning to our daughter's primary education. The school will no doubt meet, and in most cases excede your expectations of what is required in a grade school!

Peter Hobart gave our two daughter's the best educational experience we could have ever hoped for. The teachers are exceptional in tending to the required materials, but also in pursuing what each child may need individually. That is an awesome feat considering all they have to do already. The principal cares deeply for the students and pursues every avenue available to provide the best, most well-rounded, inclusive curriculum he can. Students receive music 1 - 2 times per week, phy-ed (1st - 3rd) is provided daily, as is recess. Reading and comprehension are considered top priority. Parent volunteerism is highly valued and utilized. This is a a marvelous school!

I wish I knew more about the situation described in the August 2004 review. It sounds like there are somethings that need to be resolved. Of course the benefit of this district is the option of two elementary schools. Be that as it may, I am thrilled with the quality of education here. As a formal teacher, I'm happy to say that I'm out of my league among many teachers in this district--they're great. I do feel there are a small number of teachers that should call it quits, but it seems to be far less than other districts. In fact, somewhere around 99% of parents were satisfied with the quality of education at Peter Hobart. Take if from two teachers (one former, one current): you're child will get a good foundation here.

My son started his elemantary school career at Peter Hobart and I was less than impressed with what I saw. Not only did he NOT know his letter sounds and was passed to first grade, he was labelled slow by his teachers in his home room and resolution room publically, allowing other children to call him stupid and killing his self esteem to the point that he refused to participate at all for the last three months of school <which I was called in daily to help him do his work> If these teachers are not capable of motivating a student positively at a young age, then maybe they should retire. As for comunication with the school, it is marginal at best and if you want to know something, call the principal and maybe he'll return your call 3 days later.

Both of my children have been in this school. The principal gets involved with the children daily by his morning announcements and his daily joke. I am very pleased with the special ed department and the social worker there. She is awesome with my son. I highly recomend this school.
