Provo Peaks School 5

Posted May 24, 2015

My kids have attended Provo Peaks Elementary for fours years now (since it was re-built) and absolutely love it! The teachers and staff are very caring and attentive to the needs of their students. The school offers state of the art facilities and technology. The school also offers a specialty arts program (1 1/2 hours, twice a week) for the upper grades that includes orchestra, drama, art/drawing and dance. There are also several affordable after-school programs to choose from like art, cooking and robotics/Lego League with a plan to add several more in the coming years. I also really appreciate the diversity of the students at this school. The school houses the Provo School District Special Needs Education as well as the CAS program (Gifted and Talented). Its been really rewarding to see kids of all different abilities and backgrounds get along and be respectful to each other. For example, my son loved watching and cheering for the students participating in the Special Olympics. The school also invited guests from the Clark Planetarium to perform some physics and space demonstrations--which was a hit! My kids have made wonderful friends here and have loved their teachers! My kids test very well and I've always found the teachers excited and happy to find ways to challenge and help them improve. No experience is perfect, but I've always found that the teachers and administration are easy to talk to and happy to help solve any concerns that arise. I definitely recommend this school! Its one of the best kept secrets in Provo!

School was completely rebuilt in 2011 and is now called Provo Peaks Elementary. They have a special emphasis on technology: "The school has four mobile computer labs that are networked with wireless Internet and are brought around to the classrooms for use and instruction. There are also computers in every classroom that are networked to the Internet. Each classroom is equipped with Promethean Boards which allow for interactive lessons. The school also has three Emint classrooms and one iPad classroom."
