The teachers I've dealt with are very effective. They communicate quickly when a student might be lagging behind or are not displaying strong study habits. The teachers will reach out to ensure the parent is aware.
The curriculum in this school feels much more advanced than the rest of the Paterson district. My daughter has been attending since the 3rd grade and I have been impressed with the processes in place for my daughter's learning. They offer great activities as well and communicate frequently with parents. I am very pleased with this school.
My daughter began her PCSST experience in 3rd grade. She has excelled academically and socially learning about other cultures in addition to her school studies. She has attended scientific hikes along with her Science instructor, a small group of students and Biology professor WPU. She participated in the College Coaching Plus Program two years, competed with the Science Olympiad team, and last school year she was nominated by her Language Arts teacher to attend a six day Young Leaders of America conference in which she attended this past summer in Washington, DC. We were going to move out of the state and I was trying to find another school similar in structure but I felt the one I had found did not meet the same PCSST standards. Because of this we have chosen to stay until she finishes these formative years. I will see what the Middle school has to offer. So many of the children today lack focus and need structure just to be a productive part of society. Education needs to be taken seriously. We as a country, state, city, school system on down are so far behind because we can't or don't want to follow the basics.Good Job!! PCSST!
