PCS 20th Birthday Events!

PCS is celebrating its 20th Birthday this school year. Celebrate & Participate!

Twenty years ago PCS’s founders made their vision of a public, college preparatory school, where every student had access to Advanced Placement classes, a reality. As part of the 2018-19 school year PCS celebrates all it has accomplished and looks toward a bright future of serving our community’s students. PCS’s 2018-19 school year will be capped off by PCS’s 20th graduation (PCS class of 2019).

Please join us in celebrating PCS as the year unfolds!
