Charter public schools provide quality public school options for all families. Charter schools exist and thrive because parents choose them. At PCCS we rely heavily and encourage participation from our parents as we recognize that they are our children’s first teachers and their support and involvement strengthens our school. From being engaged in the classroom, helping our award winning Farm To Table program to being morning greeters for our students; our parents play a vital role in our uniqueness and success. Thank you for choosing to be a part of our community and entrusting us with your child’s development.
