Our son started K there this past year. We were enveloped in the school "community" and appreciated the parental involvement at all levels, access to teachers and support staff as parents. Our son THRIVED in his class which had a great student-to-teacher ratio where she was able to work directly with each child and tailor each day to the student. We were very impressed with the knowledge, skills and scores that really seemed to give kids a upper hand when heading to high school when interviewing families and past students. VERY happy to have found PCS.
This school has always had low student-to-teacher ratios, which benefits the kids that attend. There is one teacher that has been trained by the NILD (National Institute for Learning Development) to assist students with diagnosed processing weakness or learning disabilities, although she is primarily a classroom teacher at this time. Still, her skills have benefitted many students over the last several years, and the school is stronger for it. If you want a school where parents have more say in their children's education than anywhere else but homeschooling, this is the school to consider for PreK-8th grade.
Since movingto Maine from New York five and a half years ago, my children have attended P.C.S. What I have found there is that the teachers as well as the Headmaster take a genuine interest in caring for, and teaching the children. The school while Christian, does not lag behind in education. In fact, I think that what they teach at P.C.S. if far more than any public school does. Not only are the classes small, but from what I have experienced, most of the students have a very positive attitude and take pride in what and how they learn. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a high quality education for their children or grandchildren.
