Culture

Dress code Dress code
Parent involvement Some 400 volunteers, mostly parents, are involved in daily activities at the school, according to the time they have available and the talents they choose to share. Community service is a defining value at PCDS, and students are the leaders and creative force behind many service activities. The school as an institution also invites the greater community to the campus--for example, the school serves 250 gifted students from Title 1 schools annually through Project Excellence and provides pro bono technology training to teachers from the same schools.
