Open Quote PCMS teachers are really nice and the school has fantastic facilities. Close Quote


Facebook Profile Picture by a parent on FaceBook

Open Quote Laura Meserole, a counselor at the school and Kim Schneider, with the registrar, have been two of the most caring and helpful school staff I have ever met in my life. And I'm in the business of education and also have met many administrators. If staff are always like this in any school, the school is destined for success - as PCMS has achieved. It does deserve more credit in my humble opinion as a parent of two of its 8th graders currently. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
