Phenomenal school with phenomenal teachers. Parent participation is beyond most schools and they welcome parents to be involved and help. Ptsa is very friendly and welcoming. Not a single complaint. I trust my child is in great hands and taken care of during school hours. More than I can say for any other school in Peoria or Arizona for that matter.

The administration went from bad to worse which created a domino effect. Moved my daughter into a charter school and happier. Bullying is a huge problem.

Lower grade teachers are very mixed. Many of the teachers are not kid friendly and talking style is often viewed as yelling by the younger students.
