6/7/2011parentWow---on October 9, 2010 a parent posted a comment that is spot on. However, rating this school on a star system is difficult. If you are comparing it to many of the other public schools around the country, then it gets a 5. If you rate it just on teachers, then it also maybe gets a five. If you rate it on its own overall merits, I'm afraid it comes up short. Peabody is a pleasant school, but there is certainly nothing cutting edge or outstanding about it. My kids have a large age span; one entered kindergarten as the other entered 6th (seniors). The younger one is simply repeating project-per-project everything that the first child did, without the introduction of any new ideas, methods or approaches. It s interesting that the teachers don't get burnt out from the repetition.
5/21/2011parentThis school does have some amazing qualities being the cafeteria witch uses organic ingredients and its own personal chef. yum. However, when it comes to the children, especially if you have a child with special needs, the staff including the principal or horrid! They are rude to the children, even ruder to the parents, and do nothing to help the child. They are only interested in what is best for them and easiest for their day. They use outdated power play on the children instead of positive teaching and reinforcement. Our experience with this school has been to say the least a major disappointment.
10/22/2010parentGreat parent support and great Principal.
10/9/2010parentSchool is a bit focused on fundraising, fundraising, fundraising. Preferential treatment is given to those who donate the most money or raise the most money. The principal is ok as long as you don't bring up any problems. The classrooms are old portables and there is very little supervision of the 700+ children on the playground. It has some stellar teachers but some really bad ones as well. Feelings are a bit mixed.
6/12/2010parentWonderful teachers & principle! My daughter was at a private school, but we decided to switch her to Peabody (our neighborhood school) and she couldn't be happier. They offer many more enrichment activities, that the private school she was going to did not. It's been wonderful for her- she is thriving!
4/19/2010parentpeabody is a great neighborhood school with lots of wonderful families and parents who volunteer
11/6/2009parentIt focuses on the whole child. And honors the creative in every child. Family involvement is high--and happy.
9/29/2009parentI have 2 kids at Peabody, and I have been amazed at all of the wonderful extra-curricular things they get to do that a lot of other schools are not offering. Every staff member there is wonderful and truly loves the families.
9/29/2009parentPeabody students and families have so much pride, and the programs are so fabulous!!! We are so happy to be part of such a fantastic community!
9/28/2009parentPeabody School is an amazing place with great teachers, staff, and programs for over 700 kids. We are grateful to be a part of such a loving and enriching environment.
9/28/2009parentExcellent teachers, incredible principal, amazing cafeteria with healthy food ... what's not to love about this school!!! Plus, my child loves it!
9/25/2009parentArts and traditional academics focus! Great parent involvement which makes the pressures of the budget crisis in California more bearable.
9/25/2009parentHigh quality staff. The quality of the people is a school's most important asset.
9/16/2009otherIt offers a first rate educational program, along with fantastic fine arts, an outstanding cafeteria, very involved parents, wonderful teachers, and the best kids in the world!
5/12/2008parentPeabody's a good school, I can't deny that. But I think it's somewhat overrated. Yes, it has a nice library and science center, but I can't say I'm all that impressed with the teaching. If the scores are better than average it's because so many of the students come from financially comfortable families with both parents in the home -- the most reliable predictors of success in the classroom.
2/21/2008parentAmazing School. The facilities are among the best in Santa Barbara or Montecito and the children thrive in this environment. There is a new music program with Konrad Kono, a great local musician and the library and science center are unmatched. If you are able to land one of the coveted spots to get your child into this school, don't let the opportunity pass you by.
4/17/2004parentThis is a wonderful school. There is tremendous spirit and parental involvement is required - 3 hours a month. The cafeteria serves organice and healthy foods - my daughter prefers the caf to lunches from home. The teachers are caring, responsive and the principal is hands on. There is a wonderful art, ceramics, drama and sports program. And in fall, 2004, a new library and science center is opening! Recommend highly.
