    A great school has challenging/helping work for their students. Peabody does not show that.They do not give you the oppurtuntay to learn more and just focus on average things. You are better of in a different school.

    Peabody is a great school with a dedicated staff that deals with a diverse population of students. Many of the Cambridge School Systems services are located in the Peabody School so help and after school care are always available. With all of these services the school essentially offers and extended day program.

    This school has a very strong music program and a focus on the arts. In addition there is a big push on to improve the quality of the middle school with programs like Avid and the ISP. We also have access to the Gately for children 10 and over. This center is very nice and well run with a large assortment of activities sports a full gymnasium and homework support. This is a North Cambridge hidden jewel!
