This is our first year at Peak and I could not be more pleased. My kindergartner has grown leaps and bounds since he started at here. The teachers and staff are amazing. The after-school program they have is outstanding.

I love this school! I have two kids going here and they love it as well. Teachers are very enthusiastic and motivated to make the environtment friendly, safe and educational. They are extremely orgainzed and prepare the kids very well. I have been impressed with the students, teachers, and parents. Everyone that is here WANTS to be here and puts forth the effort and time that it takes to make kids successful. From the 1st day, they inculcate kids about college! Bottom line, this school is GREAT!

It puts too much pressure on the students. They don't allow the students to have a break every once in a while.
