At Petworth, we work hard, get better, and play nice.
The Petworth staff and community collaborate in going above and beyond to support our students. Our small school community enables us to build close relationships with students and to have all hands on deck, so teachers, parents, and administrators can work together to meet the needs of all students.
Our team engages parents in supporting their students’ learning at home as we strive to be a community resource for our Petworth families. We communicate frequently with parents, conduct home visits, and hold conferences to discuss individual student goals and strategies for supporting the development of students’ skills. We offer parent workshops, and are currently focusing on supporting early literacy at home. We also engage parents through cultural celebrations and enrichment events.
Our teachers provide our students with individualized academic support both during and after school. Inclusion teachers work closely with general education teachers to differentiate instruction and provide individualized supports to students. Our teachers offer tutoring in English Language Arts and mathematics after school. We also offer ESL After the Bell, a program that provides targeted academic support to English Language Learners.
To support students’ social, emotional and physical development, we provide enrichment classes and after-school sports and clubs. All students take music and STEM classes. After-school sports and clubs include yoga, volleyball, tennis, and dance. In addition, we develop students’ leadership skills by giving them opportunities to join student government, take on student jobs, and even participate in a student court.
