    "Since our child started at PCDS we have witnessed a complete transformation. Before, school was a dreaded chore. Now she has actually learned.. to love learning! She get's up early excited to go to school & comes home raving about her day (both socially & academically). PCDS has done an amazing job of attracting & retaining the highest quality educators & administrators. The Admissions Department set the tone of the school with incredible individualized attention. To see an example of the unique culture at PCDS; come & watch the Middle School students arrive each morning where the Heads of school are in front greeting EVERY CHILD BY NAME, shaking their hand, looking them in the eye & giving them the respect & encouragement they deserve as they start their day. It s remarkable, it s genuine & it s just the beginning of what continues inside every classroom throughout the day. This is one of many great examples that makes PCDS so special. I do feel proud knowing that my daughter is going to what I believe to be the best school in the West. Phoenix was a temporary stop for us, but after finding PCDS, we re adjusting our lives to stay here until she finishes. It really is that good!"

    "I just came to PCDS for my freshman year. There are some reviews that say rude things such as "They look like cheap public school kids." I used to attend a public school and no one looked "cheap". PCDS does in fact have a dress code and it is a little more loose than most schools, however the students here are trusted by the faculty enough that teachers recognize that guys don't go around looking at our cleavage and bottoms. Maybe you should learn to trust your children a little and give them some freedom. At PCDS there are no cliques and everyone is accepted. The teachers are our superiors but also our friends, this should not be confused with students being disrespectful. The four classes per day schedule with long breaks in between get the students prepared for college and gives time to kids for putting last touches on projects or reading the parts of the bible they forgot was homework. Just don't think "I'm not paying 25,000 a year for my kid to get Cs or Bs." The work here is difficult, and one or two Cs with a few Bs wont matter to colleges, as students learn here in their Real World class. All in all PCDS gives parents their money's worth."

    "If you want your teen to get into an IVY League school or into Stanford, this is not the place to send him/her. My teen received all A's in all honors and AP classes except for 2 B+'s during the entire 9-12 high school education. My teen earned near perfect SAT scores, worked 40 hours of community service a year, and devoted over 18 hours a week at his/her sport. Also, the teachers loved my teen so I am sure he/she received excellent recommendations. My teen was not admitted to Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, nor Stanford. However, the same year, 3 Brophy students were admitted to Stanford, a couple of Xavier girls went to Stanford and Princeton, and kids from Arcadia and Chaparral also gained acceptance from the above named schools. No one from PCDS was accepted. My teen was tied for first in the class, although they don't have class rankings. The students know, however, who is on top. I do believe my teen received a superior education. However, the big named schools do not recognize PCDS over Brophy, Xavier, Arcadia, or Chaparral."

    "PCDS prepares kids for the real world. This school really forces your kids to think. Although there is some rote learning/memorization involved, this is not the primary/sole focus like the last school my kids' attended. PCDS seems to combine traditional and contemporary teaching tools with the goal of helping kids to think and act in innovative and thoughtful ways. We are really impressed with what we have seen so far, and we are thrilled with the thoughtful directions the school is taking. There are many opportunities outside the classroom as well, both in the arts as well as in athletics from the lower grades on up through the high school. How fortunate we feel that our kids are exposed to this type of educational experience -- not an inexpensive monetary investment but a wise long-term investment in our kids and their futures."
