PFPS is a great school with great teachers. I moved my children from a smaller school almost 4yrs ago and they both made the transition very well. The school and staff was very inviting to my boys. There is so much more to do at this larger school, the teachers are great! As a parent you are always kept in "the know" about changes in the school and with your children. The technology that the school and teachers use easily keeps the students and parents up to date on grades and anything going on.

The teachers do care about the kids.My kids love getting up and going to school. They have so many activities each week and it keeps them interested in school.

I love working with, both teachers and students at Pigeon Forge Primary. I have not found a friendlier school.Everyone goes out of their way to make one feel welcomed. The children are well behaved and teachers have done their jobs well in all academic concerns.Keep up the good work, guys!

We love this school. The teachers are friendly and fun. Terri Williams our multi-age teacher is amazing with getting the students to have a great love of reading. Her storytime is something enjoyable for all ages. I have looked at the school from the outside and also had the opportunity to work with the school. We love our little red school house.
