There is a huge advancement in my Son since he has been going to PBS. Great School and keeps on getting better!

I homeschooled my children until about a year ago when I enrolled them at PBS. I couldn't be happier. I agree that there are a lot of fundraiser, but you can either 'buy out' of the fundraiser or you can purchase SCRIP and purchase items that you would normally buy anyway (with no out of pocket expense). The teachers and all the staff are wonderful, I feel like I'm dropping my kids off at a family member's house. The classroom sizes are small, so everyone knows each other, and the students know all the adults. Don't let the price scare you, a quality education and knowing that your children are in a loving, nurturing, Catholic environment is priceless!

The quality isn't what you'd expect for the price. There isn't music class. The only available art is just drawing (with an assignment). The only sports are: volleyball and basketball. PBS used to have flag football, but doesn't anymore. PBS has trouble signing up enough people for sports. There aren't any other extracurricular activities besides being on the student council. Parents are involved a lot. Parents can join the PTG (parent/teacher group) in which teachers and parents do various things, such as creating events and things for the kids. There is also lots of parent involvement because of fundraisers. The school has way too many fundraisers. Overall: PBS is an okay school(for a low income one). If you're wanting your child to learn more about Christianity & have the money you can send them.

I am a public school teacher of 11 years and my son has been attending PBS since he was 4 years old. He's currently in 1st grade. He is in a class of 10 children. The teachers are capable, caring, and professional. Because it's so small my son knows every adult at the school, and he feels very loved and secured. This is more than a school. It's a family. If you compare the price of the public school's extended care programs, you will see that PBS is a much better deal.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
