Welcome to Peterson Elementary!

Peterson Elementary is one of five elementary schools in District 5, located in Kalispell, Montana. We serve a population of approximately 440 students, grades K through 5. Our goal is to help each child meet his/her maximum potential in an environment that supports and nurtures their social/emotional, as well as, academic needs through Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).

We welcome you to stop by and visit our school.  We are an energetic, passionate, committed group of educators working together to create a school of excellence. Inside, you will be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. You will hear friendly voices, laughter, conversation and positive encouragement. You will see students and staff working hard together, pushing themselves to grow a little more each day. Most importantly, you will immediately observe a school that puts students first and values the awesome and unique opportunity we each have to make a difference in a child’s life.

Thank you for visiting our site. Any questions you have, we are happy to answer!

Tracy Ketchum, Principal
