Pelham Union Free School District Reviews
My overall experience in Pelham schools districts has been very good. The academics and college preparation is excellent. Our school district has a wide range of activites and after school clubs. Although, I personally do not like the food which is not a big deal. Pelham is a safe neighborhood and The district superintendent is taking steps to fight racism as well as add more black history to our curriculum. Pelham is a great town with a great education!
Our experience in Elementary was mostly excellent, with a few subpar teachers, but mostly excellent and nurturing. The middle school has been the complete opposite, however. A stultifying curriculum that belies the sales pitch of the IB Middle Years program being inquiry-based and cross-disciplinary - the middle school is run by an ill-prepared discipline-focused authoritarian who has very little sophistication or understanding of child psychology. I do not recommend PMS to anyone who has a bright, curious, or "outside-the-box" child. If your child is a people pleaser who loves to follow directions and rules, they will enjoy their experience immensely. Otherwise, look at other districts.
Great school culture and pelham is a great town to grow up in absolutely love it here. School spirit, clubs, sports, and academics are all important to PMHS so here you will get the full package!
