My son absolutely loves this school!!! He is what is called "twice exceptional" which means that he has special needs, but is also gifted. This was the ONLY school equipped to help him in Kindergarten because they have something called the "ABC" Kinder program with the BEST teacher on the planet. My son is now in 1st grade, and again has a fabulous teacher who cares about all of her students and challenges them to do well. I also love the assistant principal who is one of the coolest guys and fantastic at his job; he is VERY involved with the student programs! The PTA is also great at this school and is very involved. I also love the Librarian, because she gets to know the students and they have a truly exceptional library at this school! My son may get into one of the magnet schools next year, but if he doesn't I won't be sad at all to stay at Pearson. I could not have asked for a better experience for him!
I used to go to school here from Kindergarten to 5th grade and I can tell you that it was bad. My teachers didn't help me much about the bullying that was happening to me. Not only that, but most of the teachers I had (except for two) were very rude! Whatever you do, DO NOT GIVE THIS SCHOOL A GOOD REVIEW! Its better if you don't because this school doesn't deserve it.
This school is unfortunately going downhill. Students in the older grades seem to get more and more rude and disrespectful towards parents and teachers! They're cursing teachers and teachers do nothing to discipline the students. If your child is absent for a terrible illness, be prepared to get the cold sholder from all teachers. No welcome back, hope you're feeling better or even help catching your child up on missed work. A child could be throwing up in class and this school will send them to the RR and right back to class infecting every other student around them. They will do anything to prevent an absence!! My children have attended this school since K and are now in their 5th year and I will never send another child to this school. Another thing parents should be aware of is the behavior of some 5th grade teachers. To me, it's shocking this teacher is still at this school. She threatens students of hurting them even flicking them in the head if they aren't "sitting' properly in an assembly! This teacher has been reported but do the behaviors stop, not at all! And ladies, be prepared for certain teachers to make passes at your husbands! I'm sad to say this school is a mess!
Good school. My kg is very happy there. I do find some of the office staff a little rude at times. I am a little disappointed with the counselor. I had her talk to my child after he had a major melt down in class one day. I never hear back from her except for a printout showing ways to calm down. It would have been nice to get an email, letter, or call.
Pearson is a great place to be a part of. The principal and entire staff is awesome. We have so many great parent and the PTA does a great job at keeping us involved. We have been at Pearson for 4 years and haven't had a bad year yet! Thanks to all of the teachers for working so hard to be kind and helpful and giving your best effort to our children!
I love this school. Her teachers have been fantastic and she has learned so much. Both the school P.T.A. and teachers keep me well informed on what is happening in the school and what my child is learning and will learn, so that I as a parent can help my child along with her lessons. Everyone is super involved in creating a top notch learning community. Thank you to all the staff and support staff.
