Irving Peskoe (1918-1993) and Beatrice Peskoe (1918-2003 ), husband and wife, are well-known and respected for their decades of public service to the Homestead and South Miami-Dade Community. Therefore, our school will forever commemorate their contributions that make Homestead, Florida a unique place to learn and grow.
Irving and Beatrice Peskoe Elementary School was a Pre-K – 5th school, built in 1993, and located at 29035 SW 144 Avenue, Homestead, Florida on 11.88 acres. In 2011, the school was transformed into a K-8 center. The 22 year old campus has a two-story building and a single level building surrounding two courtyards that contain 50 classrooms. In addition, a modular building was added six years ago with 11 classrooms. The modular building now houses our 6th through 8th graders as a self-contained unit that is separate from the elementary classrooms.
We are a K-8 center with approximately 901 students. We offer a rich and varied program of education for your students in a well-maintained facility. Irving & Beatrice Peskoe's Faculty, Staff and Administration strive to create an ideal setting for your child’s education, in which we provide a rich and varied curriculum designed to benefit the whole child. Whenever appropriate, efforts are made to differentiate instruction and create interdisciplinary units of study.
