Peabody High School is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Yes students do walk through metal detectors and there are camera in the classrooms but that is just to ensure safety. There are great technology and public safety programs at the school. Consider at least attending a day of classes with you child at Peabody before you completely rule it out.

This school is the worst school in the Pittsburgh public school district its like a jail it has over 100 cameras and the sutdents have to walk through metal detectors on an everyday basis. Not to mention the complaints about the security guards. This is a very dangerous enviroment to put any child in I would never wish going to that school on any child. Trust me there are a lot better schools. Do not enroll your child in this school.
To be honest I avoided sending my child here last year because I was afraid she would not be safe. This school tends to sweep things under the rug. I was happy to see the school make the news at the end of the school year this past year for its unsafe environment. Let's see how they sweep this act of violence under the rug.
