    "The teachers here are phenomenal! My daughter transferred here from a Catholic school and everyone has been so welcoming. The teachers have helped he r transition into this new environment. She is doing very well academically and has made new friends."

    "Peterson is an awesome, community supported school. Nothing is status quo. Each event, classroom, team, teacher, parent and organization is constantly evolving, educating and evaluating itself. It is so much fun to feel like a welcome part of this neighborhood school that profoundly embraces it's social and cultural diversity. I feel like my kids are safely getting an education that supports who they are and what they want to become."

    "Peterson Elementary is absolutely the best grade school any parent could ever want for their child. the Faculty and teaching staff are truly dedicated, passionate educators. the sense of community within the school is palpable. Kids in the same grade have a true bond with each other - and vertically - the teachers are connected - as well as older to younger kids connected through mentoring. The music program is phenomenal -- with instruction starting at 1st and 3rd grades. Many other schools don't start choir, theater or band programs will 4th, 5th or even 6th grades."

    "Peterson is a fantastic neighborhood school with fantastic dedicated teachers and caring and involved parents. There are great opportunities at the school for your child to get involved in many extra activities. I do wish that there was after school care for working parents and language classes offered but with a tight budget that's probably not possible. We had the opportunity to move into any neighborhood in Chicago to attend a school and chose Peterson for it's deep community."

    "Peterson School is what public education should be: open to everyone, striving for excellence, balancing academics with enrichment and awareness of the softer things that make life interesting, demonstrating - not just speaking about - care for others, for community, for earth. Does it have its troubles? Sure. All places do. But in the past 10 years since I have had children there, the school has had a steady cohort of inspiring teachers, involved parents, intentional collaborations all working to make things better. There's really no better way to learn, is there? Watching all the adults around you work hard to make things better allows children the freedom to make their own mistakes and work to get better. I love our school for that."
