PCDS provides a challenging learning environment for all its students. Standards are high and no child is ever left behind.

I just came to PCDS for my freshman year. There are some reviews that say rude things such as "They look like cheap public school kids." I used to attend a public school and no one looked "cheap". PCDS does in fact have a dress code and it is a little more loose than most schools, however the students ...  Read more

If you want your teen to get into an IVY League school or into Stanford, this is not the place to send him/her. My teen received all A's in all honors and AP classes except for 2 B+'s during the entire 9-12 high school education. My teen earned near perfect SAT scores, worked 40 hours of community service ...  Read more

PCDS prepares kids for the real world. This school really forces your kids to think. Although there is some rote learning/memorization involved, this is not the primary/sole focus like the last school my kids' attended. PCDS seems to combine traditional and contemporary teaching tools with the goal ...  Read more

Band, choir, art, debate, health, student council and athletics. Athletics were top on our list but I'm not ...  Read more

We visited several private and top charter schools. One observation we made is the majority of those schools were glorified "homework mills." A homework mill is a school that places the teaching burden upon the parents. They assign several hours of homework to be completed by the student which becaomes ...  Read more

Very Expensive, but a great school! I graduated from this school in the 90's and now my child attends and I have been very impressed with the teachers and the learning. Most of the other parents have been friendly and my child loves attending school and is learning a great deal with many hands on experiences.

This school is a joke. Money controls everything at PCDS. Parents love it, of course, since they are able to control a completely spineless administration, who allows its entitled students to be entirely rude and disrespectful to its teachers and anyone in a position of authority. The "best school ...  Read more

This is the best school in the state in our opinion. When comparing PCD to Brophy, several factors stood out in favor of PCD in our view. PCD is not affiliated with any particular religion. It is not a boys only school. An environment that consists entirely of males can be too competitive and we wanted ...  Read more
