This was one of the best schools you could have sent your child to. The school was a family. The principals Ms. Randall & Mr. Ritvalsky were just awesome. They respected the staff and children, the staff respected each other, principal, & students. In others words we all respected each other. Most of our students went to the special select highschools and went on to college. We are very proud of our students. Unfortunately. The Phildelphia School District closed most of the Middle Schools and W.S.. Peirce was one of them. One of the many big mistakes this district has performed.
