    I have 5 children and for of my children have attended peacedale elementary. The teachers are wonderful. They go above and beyond for the students. They offer financial assistants for all students who need assistants for art and soul. which is a wonderful art program the school offers the children. One of my children is special needs. He has adha. The principal is wonderful he would take time out of his busy schedule to spend time with my son with games checkers or just to talk. Every year the school assists families with help for the holiday with gifts and christmas dinner. This school has a great office staff and great teachers. Its almost like a second family.
