About Our School

Welcome to Peifer Elementary School, “Home of the Pirates!” Our school is located on Cline Avenue in Schererville, Indiana.  For over 50 years now, Peifer Elementary has served students in grades K-4 living in Schererville, Indiana with outstanding public education.  As the town of Schererville has grown over the years, so has our school.

At Peifer, the entire staff is dedicated to creating an environment in which students feel welcome, safe, and valued.  We realize, of course, that learning takes place through many methods.  The most important method, we believe, is through relationships.  We believe that the Peifer staff does an excellent job creating positive relationships with students, parents, and other community members.
