I would tell any parent whose child has an IEP to be very involved and persistent with the counselor and case conference team. There's a lot of mis guidance on certain classes, and looping program info. You have to research and dig to make sure your student is on track for college and beyond because ...  Read more

I like the communication avenues that are available. They understand that parents work the same hours as they do. Being able to log onto the system and get comments on my son as well as grades is great. I can come up with a plan of action for him before he fails not after he receives a bad grade. ...  Read more

I am a parent and employee of PTS. I have mixed emotions about some of the reviews I have read and the school itself. First, the one thing I dont have a problem with is the safety at the school. Previous reviews on that subject are just plain wrong. Nothing has ever happened at the school to warrant ...  Read more

The principal and staff are excellent, from the teachers to the custodians there is no one employed there that isn't committed to the students educations! The bus drivers and assistants are awesome too! I always feel confident and secure when my son goes to school, I know he is in good hands. Even though ...  Read more
