About The School

School Mission
We support the curious, empowered learner. At PCS, we focus on whole child development. We are closing the achievement gap by providing our students with the tools they need to succeed, in school and beyond PCS.
Quick Facts
  • Premier Charter School's program design supports and enables whole child success, grounded in a project-based learning approach (PBL).
  • Annually, 95%+ of graduating 8th grade students are accepted into their first choice high school. Annual re-enrollment based on parent satisfaction is 97%+.

  • We offer tuition-based Pre-K with financial support for all families who qualify. We also do offer a student leadership/ambassador program for middle school students (Tight 20) and elementary school students (Teeny 10).  Some activities take place after school but others are regular parts of the school day
