Peabody School 5

We have been at Peabody for 4 years now and have found it to be an exceptional experience for our child. The teachers are wonderful and are given the support and latitude by the administration to create really engaging learning experiences for the kids. Peabody really embraces individualized education which has resulted in an engaged and energized learner. There is much attention paid to the emotional and social needs of the children, in addition to the academically enriching environment. We couldn't be happier.

In our house we have a recent Peabody graduate and a new Middle Schooler, who spent three years at the Peabody elementary school, and we could not be happier with their school experience. Both have been challenged academically, have gotten a broad education, and have enjoyed themselves. Peabody teachers are truly phenomenal. For them teaching is a calling, and they are deeply committed to their students. They know them well -- their strengths and weaknesses -- and are working on helping to develop them into fun-loving but more mature individuals. Great foundation in all respects. The administration has been coming a long way: lots of creativity and new ideas are being implemented. They are also able to hire and retain the amazing teachers the school has. We consider ourselves lucky to have found the school. Incidentally, our older has been superbly prepared for high school, without sacrificing week-ends (though he did work hard during the week at Peabody). We highly recommend the school. While it may not be for everyone, try it out and see whether your child enjoys the atmosphere.

A big thank you to all the teachers. Thank you for motivating our children and getting them actively engaged in learning. Thank you for keeping an eye out for them at all times!

Outstanding and committed teaching staff. They know their subject matter and are able to convey it and get students excited about the materials.

Amount of homework: Just right

The homework assignments progress steadily over the years. Mostly no homework on Fridays, which is great. Middle schoolers have longer term projects which teach them to schedule and manage time effectively.


Peabody School
Develops grit: Strongly agree

Absolutely. Part of the academic program is to help students develop these traits. It is not sheer intelligence but often persistence that makes for success in life.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

SARA is a great example. It is program where middle schoolers explore challenging topics, such as bullying, partner violence, respect for one's body (and that of others).

Peabody School
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

The school actively fosters students supporting each other. During the spelling bee, for example, it was palpable how excited or disappointed they were for each other.

The school models these values and pays attention to students following them as well. Of course, not everyone is perfect but they are certainly striving to do their best. The adviser program in middle school is one example as are the Big Sister and Brothers' programs.

they do not address the bullying situation and encourage non violent communication, they seem to value status and money.
