    "I've been talking with other parents in the upper school and we all feel like the school has really gone downhill since they hired Lisa Culbertson. They are obsessed with image and funding and I think it's because they are having financial problems. They fired the CFO and made all the teachers teach extra classes with no extra pay. Culbertson wants there to be 400 9-12th grade students! Classes are already packed compared to how they used to be. Lots of classes have 20 students in them (don't know where they got 9:1) and teachers seem stressed and unhappy. Sad to see such a great place go be ruined."

    "Great school, I have been at this school since I was in Kindergarten and I will be graduating this year. I have loved every minute of my time at the school. The classes are small and all the teachers are dedicated and will help you whenever you need it."

    "Great teachers and facilities, but the academics are very rigorous and challenging. It is difficult to earn good grades and makes college admissions hard. In addition, the administration is horrible -- they do not work with teachers or students and make executive decisions that are not best for students or teachers. We have lost some amazing teachers because of the administration."

    "The school donated millions to a new gym in a non-athletic school while the Latin club (#1 in the state) gets nearly no funding from the school, they re increasing their class size by 25% and no longer does every grade get lockers. The school's newer teachers aren't qualified nor are they kind to the students. If I were to do it again, I wouldn't with the new faculty. Avoid this school in favor of Brophy/Xavier for the time being - and I'm an atheist. I would rather go to those two catholic schools than PCDS at this point due to the awful faculty, ridiculous choices of funding, and the stuck-up attitude of the full-pay students (I was on scholarship)."

    "The teachers at PCDS were great, but we've had the largest teacher turnover in the school's history last year. We had a teacher fired for sexually harassing a student and screaming at them, we've had teachers hired with no previous experience, and the administration has gotten lazy with their hiring. When a teacher gave them leave notice in the beginning of the year, the school didn't begin their search for a replacement until a month before school got out. The teachers aren't nearly as high quality as they have been in the past because the majority of teachers that made the school what it was have left."
