The Peck Place School
Built in 1969, The Peck Place School is a neighborhood school with slightly less than four hundred students in grades one through six. There are sixty caring staff members who work together to create an energetic, academic learning environment. Peck Place School has twice earned the distinction of being recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School, an award bestowed only to schools that demonstrate highly effective instruction, assessment, planning, leadership, communication, and parental/community involvement.
The building has a distinctive architectural design which places our multimedia center as its focal point and hub of activity. Its central location makes it readily accessible to all students. The center’s direct proximity to our computer lab, located in the school’s inner core, provides a convenient connection for students and teachers.
Besides being instructed in the core areas of reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science, students are also enriched in the areas of art, music, technology, physical education, and the Spanish language. In addition, Peck Place students have yearly experiences through cultural assemblies, service projects, and distance learning that helps deepen understanding and promote tolerance.
Parental involvement is a key contributor to the success of Peck Place School. Our PTO is an active organization that funds enrichment programs and is instrumental in creating a strong school-family bond and a sense of connectedness.
The Peck Place School works to educate the whole child, develop responsible, respectful, and productive citizens, and prepare our students for the future. In short, Peck Place students are known for the tracks they leave behind.
