Welcome to Pepperhill Elementary School!


At Pepperhill Elementary, we have high expectations for both students and staff. We are committed to effective instruction and authentic assessments that produce equitable and challenging learning experiences for all students.

The framework of Personalized Learning is utilized as our cornerstone to grow our students. Critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and effective communication are emphasized in daily lessons. Strengthening our student’s social/emotional skills through our adherence to the tenets of Responsive Classroom is at the center of all we do and provides a base on which we foster both the communication and collaboration skills of our students. Responsive Classroom is an evidence-based approach to elementary and middle school teaching that focuses on the strong link between academic success and social-emotional learning. If you are interested in learning more about Responsive Classroom, you can view a brief introductory video here: https://www.responsiveclassroom.org/about/.  There is also a wealth of information for parents on their website.
