Peterson middle school has brought my child to unimaginable dreams come check out peterson

Horrible administration with elitist attitude. Not sure why the hype

By a Parent on

After calling and speaking to staff at this school, I chose not to send my child here. I know that people are scrambling to get their kids into this school, but I am not sure why. They have a  rude and arrogant administration. I sent my child to Buchser Middle School and she loves it.
Best decision I have made in a long time...

If a parent volunteers at the school their children do have to follow dress code or rules. Children who have learning disabilities as ADD or ADHD get told that they will always struggle so pretty much as long as they dont cause any problems they get forgotten. Principle and office staff are rude. Sunnyvale is nice but I would not recommend this school,  they are there for the money and thats it.

Bad school. Cannot provide a drug free environment. Will put the blame on students but fail to take preventive actions.

By a Parent on

Great school, numerous programs that involve the students. All teachers are professional.
