PDS provides a loving and nurturing environment for our boys where they can grow academically, emotionally, and spiritually. The curriculum is challenging and engaging. PDS realizes that no two boys are alike, and our boys are provided with a safe environment where they can not only be themselves, but learn to be proud of the man they are becoming and the man God created them to be. The faculty and staff at PDS love our boys and truly care about them. They care about the "whole" boy, academically, emotionally, and spiritually. PDS is an amazing school, and we wouldn't have our boys anywhere else.

PDS provides my son with a loving and nurturing environment while encouraging him to strive for excellence in academics, music/art, sports and most importantly, life. The time the teachers and administrators spend building his confidence is priceless. As a fifth grader, he is fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in the next steps of his education.
