My son is in middle school and he has thrived in this school. The teachers look at your child`s individual needs and strengths. My son has become more confident. The teachers, administration and coaches are amazing.

As a mother, I have a tendency to second guess every decision that I make for my children. However, when it comes to the decision to send my oldest child to PCD, I will never second guess that. PCD has been the best place for him. He has gotten everything that I had hoped he would from this environment and has flourished. My second son loved it so much, that he also wanted to attend. The school has been amazing for him for different reasons. PCD offers everything that I wanted for both boys. My oldest has become more organized, and has taken his studies to the next level. My second son is gaining the confidence that I had hoped that he would gain. The teachers, faculty and coaches are amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better school for my children.
