I am a former student of George Peabody,I had a daughter who attended Pre-K thru 6 grade and now I have my youngest daughter attending there as well.For what my daughters have learned and brought home to teach us parents as well, I give great appreciation to the staff at George Peabody.The fact that they have very little recreation at times does not concern me at all for the teaching and well being for my daughter makes up for it all .... The community tends to support the fact that our childrens teachers make a difference on how the respond to challenges to move forward and continue to strive for great success.Great stories and memories of the this school and I'm PROUD that I attended and that my girls did too .. GREAT JOB PEABODY STAFF !!! OH,AND MRS.COLLINS WILL STILL BE THERE FOR A LONG LONG TIME !! LOL
I consider George Peabody a hidden treasure. Although this blue ribbon school is located in Oak Cliff and many families come from a low Socio-Economic background, the students, parents, and faculty do not lower their expections. I am thrilled that my baby is able to thrive at this exemplary school. Peabody pushes the students towards commended performance and college readiness, but this school also provides other opportunities for the students. During every PTA meeting, the students provide entertainment in the form of singing, dancing, poetry, acting, etc.
I am a former parent and hope to keep it that way. The Principal is ineffective. Children have no liberties. It feels like a dank prison. Individuality is squelched quickly and they must conform to Perform correctly on the standerdised tests!
I attended George Peabody Elementary for my Pre-K through 6th grade years and it is with great pride to say that this school is nothing but wonderful. The teachers at the school are extraordinary, the students are happy to be there, and the principal couldn't be more awesome. Not to mention that this school is exemplary for two years in a row! Kudos to all of the great students at Peabody Elementary! Charger Pride never dies out.
My children have been attending Peabody for 5 years, and I have always been impressed by the quality of education they receive there. The Ms. Egan, the principal is very involved and hands on with the students.
The principal does not accurately reflect the needs of the community!Extra curricular activities are non-existent and pretty much at the 'mercy' of the principal.
George Peabody is an excellant school. Students are well prepared for all major exams. There are wonderful programs such as the S.M.A.R.T. program for both parents and students who might be at risk for academic failure due to any circumstances. This program is currently teaching students how to bond and take pride in their school. Their current project includes students planting and cultivating a garden in the school court yard and planting several plants and shrubs all around the school thereby imporving the school's outerappearance and taking pride in their hard work. The school also boost of having a music band for students in the uppergrades while offering music literacy for the lower grades. Parent moral and involvement is high and are always found willing to help the students and teachers.
New female principal has a vision for school. Puts academics, safety, and parents involvement first. She cares about the children.
I want to say that it has been a pleasure to have 3 childern leave this school. I have nothing but good things to say about this school, by oldest daughter is now 16 and she attended George Peabody since she was 4yrs. old. I have been at this school for many years and very happy. I would like to thank all the teachers for their hard work.
