Peters Canyon Elementary School Reviews
WORST school ever!! Moved to Newport Beach and met several families who have also attended and agree. My children fell behind due to a very turbulent divorce. Completely disgusted and highly disappointed with the staffs inability to help families in crisis. Had several meetings where I was told there was nothing 'extra' they would do in order to help and I was to do more at home. NOTE: TURBULENT DIVORCE(not to mention I only had them 50% of the time). My girls dreaded school. They now attend NEWPORT COAST ELEMENTARY. A true example of and outstanding school. Their method of teaching is outside the box and all they do is 'extra'.(ALL within school hrs.) Not only did they catch up within the first year...they LOVE school and LOVE learning! Peters Canyon staff needs to take a field trip to NCE and take notes!
I am proud to be a teacher at PCE. I believe we are the finest school in the Tustin district, and if you are considering moving to this area, I can't wait to meet you. This is as good as it gets.
