We have loved PCDS. The new headmaster, teachers and energy are awesome. It feels like we get the pedigree of teachers and headmaster of an elite school on the East Coast with the vibe of Park City. Just a perfect combination.

My child attended Park City Day School from the beginning. She has since moved on to High School. However, she did so exceptionally prepared to the challenges and rigor of advanced coursework, honors, AP, concurrent enrollment, college courses. I feel strongly that PCDS prepared her academically, socially, and emotionally to excel in any environment. The focus on their core values and her advisor in middle school ensured she not only gained academic knowledge, but skills for studying, collaborating, and grit. I would strongly recommend PCDS to any family.
