    Peebles elementry school has always have had great communication with us.if there was ever a concern with our children academically or with behavioral concerns we were notified immediately with suggestions for help in either area.The teachers have giving us many ways to contact them for any concerns.I would just like to say i am proud to have my child learning and excelling in this public school system. I feel the teachers here make us feel great about public education by taking pride in there jobs as hard as it may be sometimes.THANK YOU!!

    This is an incredible school! The staff is warm genuine and very professional. The curriculum is top notch and the entire staff keeps you enlightened with everything you need to know. My son and I moved back home to Cape Cod from Texas because my husband was deployed to Iraq the entire staff embraced my son and is supportive of our entire family.

    When compared to the other elementary schools in town Peebles seems to be lagging behind. There are some great teachers in this school but some of the classes just have too many children in them and some of the kids are so badly behaved that the other children in class suffer.
