Our Staff

PSCS staff members are people who demonstrate outstanding character and a commitment to lifelong learning.

Because of the unique structure of the school—emphasizing passion, authentic learning, and a steadfast promise to maintain a supportive environment—we have been able to select the best applicants for each of our staff positions from an extraordinarily rich talent pool.

In terms of our teaching staff, we do not limit them to teaching only one narrow field of study. PSCS does not have designated English teachers or math teachers, for example, because we want teachers to bring their whole selves to work each day.
