Pee Dee Elementary cares about ever student. The academics offered at Pee Dee are unmatched when compared to other schools in the state. Strong leadership and a warm highly qualified faculty. This parent would not send her child anywhere else!

Very dedicated staff. They are willing to work with you and listen to your childs needs. They could use more parent involvement which I understand can be hard for most parents.

Being apart of the faculty of Pee Dee Elementary has been a wonderful experience. I have never worked with a more caring group of teachers.

I love this school. It is my home school and I am a proud parent of one Pee Dee Busy Bee and one former Bee. I love that I was able to let my children enjoy the same learning experiences that I did. Pee Dee is the best. Keep up all the good work teachers and staff.

My two daughters attended this school for about six months, grades 5 and 3. I have nothing negative say about this school. Wonderful new building, wonderful and caring teachers. If I could send them there now I would in a heartbeat. I have six children, now live in NC. This is the best school system that I have experienced with my children. We moved often, but Pee Dee Elementary always stays with me and my children. So many times they have told me they want to go to Pee Dee. I say, as well as my children, five gold stars in education, teachers, building, pta, etc., everything.

My granddaughter has attended here for 2 school years and she loves Mrs. King, her teacher. She has done well with her. The principle is very helpful and we have been pleased with the cooperation from the staff. There has been some problems with a new teacher when Mrs. King was on maternity leave. But, the principle worked on her instruction and the real teacher came back. Overall, the school is run well.
