About Us

New Alphabet School!

Many of you knew and loved the Three R's, Mrs. McCluskey, and the many wonderful teachers that have taught your children over the past 30 years.   With the sad passing of Mrs. McCluskey the school was in jeopardy of closing forever.

We are pleased to announce the new owner and head director, Mrs. Bell.  

Mrs. Bell is a former teacher at the Three R's from way back when.  The new school has been named the "Alphabet School".  Much easier to remember and spell!  

We know you are going to love Mrs. Bell and we look forward to meeting you and serving Pendleton's children for many more years.

Why Alphabet School Is the School for You

Children who learn to read early have a clear advantage over other children.  Research studies have shown that preschool reading activity produces significant I.Q. gains.  We're not quite sure why that's true yet, but it may have something to do with vocabulary.

Noteworthy research is happening around the area of language acquisition and vocabulary.  Early increases in a child's vocabulary have been shown to have advantageous carry over effects throughout his lifetime.  Each new word represents a chunk of knowledge.  More words, more knowledge.  More ways to connect ideas and concepts.    

Reading books (even more than conversations with adults) is the single greatest method for increasing your child's vocabulary.   All About Books, Susan B Neumann

When a child graduates from high school he needs a vocabulary of 80,000 words to successfully tackle college.  

We concentrate on giving your child the power to independently start on that amazing journey of words.
