Cultivating and challenging engaged, "future-ready" learners in grades 6 - 8.
A Day in the Classroom
A typical day in the classroom involves hands-on, experiential learning, and integrated technology utilized to help students develop the knowledge and skills necessary for success. The advanced, researched-based curriculum, the project-oriented, experiential learning environment, and the intellectual example displayed by exceptional teachers foster in our students a habit for lifelong, engaged learning. Students participate in visual arts, outdoor learning, service learning, student government, and explore a variety of elective courses that help them to grow as individuals within peer groups that are supportive and encouraging of that developing individuality. PCDS middle school students discover a true sense of connectedness and a place to belong.
