Our Mission
The Michael J. Petrides School is a seamless Pre-K through 12 grade school committed to creating an environment for learning that nurtures the "whole child" - mind, body, and spirit.  Teachers, parents, administrators, and support staff collaborate to provide an education that celebrates the diversity of our students and recognizes the individuality and creativity of each child.  Using alternative strategies of a laboratory environment, we integrate the arts into a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum and engage students in active learning, develop self esteem and promote, generate, creative, life-long learners.
