About Petersham Center School
The Petersham Center School family is committed to providing an environment in which the needs of all the children are met, enabling them to develop to their fullest potential. We stress a curriculum enriched with opportunities to develop academic, social and physical skills; taking into consideration the individual differences and needs of every child.
The school provides the living and learning experiences for each student to attain the abilities necessary to meet future educational aspirations and to become a productive citizen in our society. We foster a stimulating, positive atmosphere that challenges each child to think responsibly while promoting creativity and intrinsic motivation. The ideals of cooperation, caring and respect are encouraged in school, at home, and within the community.
