Thank you for your support of PSCS and other community organizations embodying missions and values we prioritize.

We’re ALL building something extraordinary, and we’re doing it together.

"I just have to say, this is awesome. my child's report cards in the past were not at all from a strengths-based lens. We are grateful for PSCS to really see my child and who he is. Thanks for giving him such great opportunities to grow and learn and make connections. I read the positive statements about him and it makes my heart full. I know this is such a challenging time and the thoughtfulness, flexibility and grace by all at PSCS throughout this is so appreciated."

“The tragedy of school shootings underscores my gratitude for PSCS: First, as a community that uniquely embodies respect for all; second, as a model to the world of engaged and caring people, of all ages; and third, as my daughter's school. Not only do I trust for her physical and emotional safety, I also trust the depth and quality of the learning—on high school shootings, movies, teenage drinking, college, politics, (everything!)—that I know she will be surrounded with at PSCS.”

“...I’ve gone to a school where my voice has been valued, where I’ve been given the opportunity to make my own choices, and where compassion has been paramount.  A place with teachers who have actually cared about me and how I’ve been doing. A place where I’ve learned how to read.  And when I say learned how to read I don’t mean learned to read, I mean learned how to read...

"I am writing to express my thanks for your vision and labor in creating PSCS, and for the positive impact PSCS has had on my daughter.

Jostin Darlington ’06

For PSCS alum Jostin Darlington, it all started with a bit of adolescent fun at McDonald’s. “We had a group of friends sitting at a booth, video taping me as I ordered a large meal,” he remembers. “The plan was that after receiving my food I would trip myself and spill it in front of the rather busy restaurant. It went according to plan, and everyone laughed a lot.” Jostin was a high schooler at PSCS at the time. After editing his skits into a montage of funny scenes, he wanted to share it with his friends via the Internet. He asked a PSCS staff member to teach a web design class. He wanted to sell DVDs over the web, so he found up-and-coming musicians who would grant permission to use their music for the soundtrack to his videos. Sending emails to indie bands on websites like became an obsession. “We spent more time on than anything else at that point in time,” he says. Jostin and his partners, fellow PSCS students Adrian Kenepah and Jordan Arnold, became inspired by the local music scene. That led to start an online magazine. They threw shows for local bands to promote the magazine, which quickly evolved into charging bands a fee to design websites for them. The business kept growing. Soon, they were signing bands from Cleveland and New York to their fledgling record label. On his 18th birthday, four months before graduating from PSCS, Jostin got a phone call from a record label in Nashville. They wanted to fly him out for a job interview to lead their new media department. Jostin’s career as an entrepreneur was off and running. Now, he’s back in Seattle. He quickly grew his high tech startup to 12 employees before it was acquired in 2010. Afterward, Jostin led a team of 10 at a local digital agency delivering brand value to some of the most popular brands on the web and fortune 500 companies. Read More >
