  • Reviewed by Parent or Guardian on March 29, 2011

  • I have a Kindergartener and 2nd grader at Peirce and we have been so happy there. The teachers are amazing, the involved parents are inspirational and motivating. I wish more parents were involved but the school has a plan for that. They know where they want to go, have a plan of how to get there and are implementing their plan. I am so excited to be a part of it. Peirce is no longer an up and coming school, the "coming" is here and continues to go "up". They have a middle school IB program for 6-8 grade and are working to bring the program to K-8. Teachers, parents, administration, students are excited about the things going on at Peirce.
