Principal’s Message

Dear Parents and Caregivers;

Welcome to Dan Peterson School.  Our school is entering its thirty fourth year as a public

school in Alpine School District.  We are proud to serve our students and strive to

provide the best educational experience possible.  Peterson has a long tradition of

excellent teachers, related servers, and caring staff.

Our mission as a team of highly qualified professionals operating in a transparent partnership with stakeholders, is to effectively teach students the state standards to ensure academic success.  This is very important to us.  Following the

Common Core and Essential Elements, we are able to expose students to curriculum at their age and

developmental levels.

This, combined with the outstanding support that we receive from each of you, enables

each of us to support all students in their educational and vocational endeavors.  We also have an excellent School

Community Council that meets regularly to discuss the needs of our students.  Together, we can make sure that ALL students,

regardless of varying disabilities, can be successful.

I appreciate all of the support from each and every one of you.  We’ll have a great journey together!
