We are very, very happy with PFE! My kids have had excellent, dedicated teachers and the principal knows every student's name. There is a strong anti-bullying program in the school. Lots of communication between the school and parents from teachers and the principal. Great PTO that does a lot of great things for the school. Parents are always welcomed in the school and diversity is respected. Lots of kids from varying socioeconomic backgrounds and a very caring community. My kids love going to school!
I wouldnt even give it 1 star, but it was the only option. It is the worst school in the District! The teachers and principal are condescending know-it-alls! They say they promote at Bully free school; however what they actually do is entirely different. Teacher's children are given special treatment. Racism is allowed. There are only a few good teachers and staff there, but all in all it is a snobby school from the moment you walk in the door. My son referred to it as DARK FOREST! I COULD GO ON AND ON, but you get the idea. The only people who like that school are white and/or have lots of money/status.
My child was called the N-word on multiple occasions. He was assaulted by a student who's mother taught in the school. The principal's response was to ask my son what he did to make the other student act out towards him. Beware if you are a minority. I ignored the warning and we paid the price.
A simply wonderful school that we feel incredibly lucky to be a part of. The teachers and principal are caring, competent individuals that have taught both of my children a great deal both about how to be good citizens in addition to how to succeed academically.
