We have been at Pendleton Elementary since our children started school. It has been a wonderful experience! Absolutely great teachers, staff, and administration!!! This school loves it's students and works hard to educate them and care for them. I had the chance to move my children this year under the Choice Schools program to another school, but did not because I am so very pleased with everything.

I love Pendleton Elementary - the teachers and principal care so much about all the students. They are open to new ideas and try to be very innovative. My children are in 2nd and 3rd grades and we have been very, very happy with the school.
