Welcome to John R. Peterson Elementary School PTA

About Us

Our School Mission

The students, staff and parents of John R. Peterson School comprise a culturally diverse community whose purpose is to work together so all students achieve a level of literacy in English Language Arts and knowledge of mathematics that enables them to meet all State Standards and interact appropriately within our diverse society.  All students will demonstrate strong character and positive values while striving to attain academic excellence.

Our School Vision

John R. Peterson School assesses it’s effectiveness on the basis of results rather than intentions.  We will continue to cultivate a collaborative culture where learning is our fundamental purpose while striving for API scores above 900.

Individuals, grade level teams and administration will regularly seek data to promote continuous improvement to ensure all students attain proficient or advanced levels on the statewide Standards assessment exams.

The school will be recognized as an inclusive community where staff, parents, administration and business partners actively work together to assure every student’s academic, social and emotional success.

Who We Are

Peterson PTA is a professional, non-profit volunteer organization committed to the well-being of all children and families. We connect our families, school and community.
