About Peterborough Elementary School
Peterborough Elementary School (PES) is a caring, motivated Kindergarten – Fourth grade learning community that fosters academic excellence, curiosity, responsibility, and mutual respect. Our mission is To Engage, Support and Inspire. We strive to model and teach the habits of effective learners; our goal is for all students to become capable, confident, compassionate students who model our school behavioral motto: “Keep it on your mind: Be respectful, safe, and kind.”We are proud of our school’s exceptionally talented and resourceful staff members whose priority is the overall social and academic needs of all students. Teachers spend part of each week in Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s), engaged in professional discussions and collaborative planning of effective instruction, curriculum, and assessments that will help all students achieve at a higher level.
PES teachers are life-long learners, attending and presenting at conferences and workshops on a regular basis. Five staff members are currently enrolled in advanced graduate degree programs. Our staff members have been invited to speak at classes in Keene State College’s Department of Education, at the NH Council on the Arts Annual Conference, and at the Peterborough and Monadnock Rotary Clubs.
