About Pear Tree Elementary

Welcome to Pear Tree Elementary

Pear Tree School establishes its approach to fostering emotional, social, and physical development together. This is possible only through the particular education program of this school. Unique themes, project-based learning, a healthy lunch program, and daily P.E. classes are only part of the center's training program. Pear Tree Elementary is also known as PTE was founded in 2016.  PTE is trying to educate students. Instead of dwelling on the traditional way of teaching, Pear Tree tries to prepare children for life in the community practically and entertainingly.

Principal: Alexis Birner

Teachers at PTE don’t teach the core subjects as separate and isolated topics, i.e. math, language arts, science, social studies, art, etc. Instead, PTE issues are meaningfully integrated and taught all day, every day. Lessons are built around themes and projects that holistically incorporate academic subjects. Any given task will include multiple skills, new concepts, and practice in any combination of academic subjects.
