We have had an absolutely amazing experience and we are attending again. I toured 10 schools in our area before deciding on PCS but I'm so glad we chose them! now have 2 children at this school - they both attended since 2014. The teachers are caring and love the kids, the principal is fun, the dress code is easy to comply with, the facilities are great, the curriculum is fantastic, and the cost is comparable to others in the area. I always feel welcomed. The environment feels good, and you can tell they genuinely care.
