My child attends PCIS... So far the teachers we have met seem to be great teachers. My child isvery excited about going to PCIS and she loves her teachers. I've always heard the negatives about the school. The people doing the talking have never even tried the school. Don't knock it until you try it.

I have three children in this school and all I can say is awesome. Teachers have a great attitude and always getting better. I was shocked to see this school was only rated at a 3! This school is a shining star in this area. Those that do not believe so may want to go back to school themselves.

This is my daughter's 3rd year at PCIS. The school is wonderful! The faculty and staff does a wonderful job dealing with 'hormonal pre-teens and teens'. The kids are at the most difficult age in their lives and the PCIS staff is wonderful with them! You could not ask for a more wonderful and understanding leader than Mr. Blevins. He has grown PCIS from a low rated school to the best in the area!

My son transferred in to PCIS and this school year has been nothing but a nightmare. They have not impressed me at all as a NASA Explorer school. They need some new teachers and maybe their test scores will be greatly improved.

I just want to be the first to say how great PCIS is. My daughter has gone to your school since 5th grade and, she is know in the 7th I just pray that you have 8th grade next year. Mr Blevins has to be the best principal in Alabama. The teachers are great the students are so well mannered and listen better then any other school I have been to. I have Children in two other schools and there is no comparison in the schools. Please never consider or think twice about sending you child to PCIS it rules.
