Campus and facilities: The Peak School moved to its current building in 1954 and the campus boasts a large playing field for students to engage in sports and recreation. In addition, the school is always looking for ways to redesign and redevelop their learning spaces. As part of this effort to modernize the school, a new Performing Arts area was introduced in 2012 that includes two soundproof studios, new audio/visual setup and a deck area. There is also a school garden where students can grow their own food and learn about sustainability.
Competitive advantage: The Peak School prides itself on being a community school that respects and appreciates the contributions of everyone involved, between the students, parents, teachers and community partners. Peak School offers the IB PYP curriculum focused on an inquiry approach to learning. The school hopes to inspire its students with all of the attributes and attitudes of the Learner Profile. With 33 nationalities and 19 languages represented, diversity is at the forefront of this school’s values.
