Incredible experience. Sadly, this page does not detail the Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) offered here, in partnership with Cambridge University. The program offers a variety of accelerated coursework, to the point where I am a junior, almost a senior by credits at my current University, even though I started here in August. I am knowledgeable in my classes because of my study of many topics through this program, and feel prepared for college-level essays and content. I now also have so many credits from AICE work that I can pursue three majors, in biochemistry, environmental sciences, and American history.

As an alumni, I can say that PBC really helped shape my life. I was a honors student and I took mostly honors classes, each challenging me to do my best. I had some amazing teachers that helped shape my life - specifically Mrs. Bretherick who taught me that if you want to do well you have to challenge yourself. Her class was not easy and I was glad for it, as it helped me not only with college, but with life beyond that. Mr. LaFevers taught me the true meaning of compassion and giving. Mr. Hall taught me that no matter how big my dream was, it was attainable as long as I was willing to work towards it. Mr. O'Hara was a great teacher always willing to help if you showed an effort. He brightened my days with his quirky personality and love for science. The office staff and teachers were always willing to help when needed. True, the time between classes could have been a bit longer since the campus is so large, but if you're not socializing you can get to class on time. The clubs and activities are extensive and fun. The cafeteria has some of the best school food I've ever eaten with tons of varieties.

I have two boys who have attended this school and have always been able to contact teachers and staff without an issue. I usually contact first by email leaving phone number and best times to reach me because I have limited availability during the day. They have always been accommodating. My children also thought it was a great school.

Simply put, authority in this school is prime focus, classes are uninspired you have 5 minutes to navigate through 150 meters of school ground with 3000 students rushing in the opposite direction you are. Most times, needing to make a stop at your locker to pick up your textbook. Not Because you need it to learn, but because you receive a detention for not bringing it. A second late to class, detention. No exceptions. It is impossible to have a stress free day in this mess. Go to John I. Having gone a year to both schools, John I. by far exceeded expectations. Each and every student is cared for, and not treated rudely the way they would be in pbc. John I. Made me feel like I was important, cared for. They have even referred me to the school therapist to speak one on one. Many of the AP's at John I. Made full effort to help me, while pbc makes me feel as if I am constantly and only ever being watched for mistakes. Don't do this to yourself. Leave it for students who are perfect, because they are the only ones left alone.
