School Reviews

PCS Elementary has been a great experience for my son & our family. The teachers & faculty are all exceptional! They love what they do and it shows. There positive influence allows for a teaching environment that is unique compared to a lot of other schools. The small student to teacher ratio has allowed our son to advance at his own pace & really grasp what he is learning. We looked at a lot of private schools before applying to PCS and have enjoyed watching our son prosper.
