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

Because of the unique structure the school—emphasizing passion, authentic learning, and a steadfast promise to maintain a supportive environment—PSCS is an attractive place to work. As a result, when we have staff openings we are able to select the best applicants from an extraordinarily rich talent pool. Additionally, staff members tend to stay at the school once they've been hired. Our current staff has over 75 combined years of working at PSCS!

Part of what makes the school such an attractive place for teachers is because we encourage them to offer activities that interest and excite them. Where most schools hire teachers to teach one narrow field of study, PSCS hires teachers based on character and their ability to bring their whole selves to work each day.
