This school is all about helping children learn...not just academics but about being conscientious citizens of a community as well as the world...the teachers and staff are caring and compassionate. This school helps to create a community that embraces inclusion and children of all abilities.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the staff and faculty at PPS. Everyone is extremely supportive and aware of each child's needs! Great Job to especially to Mr. Marshall (Principal), Mrs. Troia, Mr. Moses and Mr. Pecor - you all rock!

I have had four children with special needs and two children without, and each child has been treated with respect, support, and attention to their differences. From the administrative staff to the support staff, this school represents the best of all possible examples of nurturing a childs development, educationally, socially and most importantly their individual self potential. As a parent I have been informed, included in all processes and the safeness and security my children feel has been immeasurable. I have had children in other learning environments and I can resoundingly say this is the best start a child could have in a public school setting. Each parent enrolling their child can take advantage of the open door policy to support their child, and their community in meaningful ways. I believe the no child left behind concept could have originated through those doors. I appreciate the benefits all children have there.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
