    Well it's not a terrible school like people say.My child has come home many days with a huge smile on her face from a certain teacher.But some teachers like the teachers that teach APAC w.hemisphere mistreat some students. And other teacher that teach or used to teach APAC Pre-Algebra worked with me on my child but Peeples is not terrible.

    On a scale from 1 to 10 this scale is a -1. The teachers are wonderful; however they do not have the proper administration to back them in situations involving students. The principal has a nonchalant attitude and just seems to think the kids behavior problems are the fault of the teachers. I would really like to see the State Dept of Education assist the teachers in their efforts of trying to teach amongst the various discipline problems. Something really needs to be done.

    I think the school has too many 6th graders which limits the teacher's ability to thoruoghly teach the kids. Some children needs more attention than others and the teacher can not give that in a class of 40+ kids. The pricipal needs to do something about that.

    I think that this school should beef up security measures. It does not seem to be safe for students. Also the school has numerous discipline problems in which hinders students from learning.
