My son has been at PCS since preschool. We have absolutely loved every parent, student, and most importantly, teacher that we've met! It's a great Christian atmosphere where my child learns of Jesus's love, but they also focus on academics. We love it!

We love PCS and the staff. Feels like one big family and you can tell the teachers and staff really care about the kids. The students are vey great kids and my children have great friendships. The Elementary principal is such an awesome sweet person and so is the office staff for both the elementary and high school.

5 stars are too many for this school. The classes are becoming way too big (over 20 in most) and because of this the kids get less personal attention. My child rarely has homework , and things in general with the administration seem chaotic. On the positive side, they do provide a good Christian education and expectations for behavior and good manners with the kids are high. I wish I could say our family was happier with PCS.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher 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.
