Perea Elementary School
Preparing students academically, socially, and emotionally for success today and tomorrow.
2023-2024 School Year
Welcome to Perea Elementary
Perea Elementary is a public charter school located in North Memphis. Opened in Fall 2018, our school brings a unique, nationally-acclaimed elementary school model to Memphis.
In partnership with Perea Preschool (Memphis, TN), Perea Elementary School applies thoroughly researched practices best to prepare our students academically, socially, and emotionally for success today and tomorrow.
Our wholistic approach to education prepares students for success beyond the classroom.
Our Teaching Model
At Perea, we focus learning on three pillars of education:
We do not ascribe to a one-size-fits-all model of education because we appreciate that every student comes to us with individual learning needs and styles. Our curricula and instructional methods combine structure with student choice and couples high expectations with differentiation.
Every child needs to develop social-emotional skills to be successful in school and in life. Our model will help students understand their brain, learn how to cope in difficult situations and empower them to be their strongest and brightest selves.
In return, our students will have the ability to establish and maintain healthy relationships with adults and their peers as our model teaches them about Safe Relationships, Self-Regulation, Awareness of Self, Understanding Others and what it means to be a Changemaker.
In doing so, we believe that parents will gain an authentic understanding of the school and of other parents as well as deepen their understanding of and relationship with themselves and their child(ren), which we firmly believe will empower parents to actively invest in and support their child(ren)’s learning at school and home. We do not ascribe to a one-size-fits-all model of education because we appreciate that every student comes to us with individual learning needs and styles. Our curricula and instructional methods combine structure with student choice and couples high expectations with differentiation.
