School Reviews

Here, at Peoples Academy, we have a great deal of after school classes, sports, and activities. Such as soccer, softball, baseball, basketball, drama, etc. There is also a select chorus, chorus, and band available to anyone who wishes, though certain knowledge is required for some of them. We also try to get parents involved as much as possible. We turn concert nights into nights where we show what we've been doing in school and we get to demonstrate some of those things. Such as demonstrating archery, which is something we do in Physical Education. It is very fun! I love this school!
