"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 am very grateful for all the staff, friends, and families that are a part of PSCS.

I know so many wonderful human beings because of my relationship with the school.

My life and my self would not be the same without you.”

PSCS senior credo

“...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...

PSCS senior credo

"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. I am so pleased to report that she feels very safe at PSCS and is genuinely excited to go to school—she is also invested in being responsible and meeting the expectations of the team there...

I know you all work hard to make this vision possible for the entire school.

In addition, you all helped make it possible for my daughter, specifically, to be able to attend."
