Welcome to Peterson Elementary School

Little Red
Welcome to Peterson, where Peterson Tigers show their PRIDE each day. We are an elementary school on the west side of Wichita with a proud history and strong tradition in academic excellence and connection with the community. Peterson students work to demonstrate honorable character traits each day by demonstrating “Personal Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, and Doing our best to achieve Excellence.” This phrase represents our guidelines for success and is where we get our PRIDE acronym. 

To the left is "Little Red," the original Peterson school.
