    "I refer to PCDS as the Google of schools. They encourage innovation and individualism! The children work hard and seem very happy. I think there are a few minor things that go through the cracks. I believe an annual anonymous parent and student survey would bring these things to the administrations attention. The small school atmosphere, while wonderful, can be intimidating. Likewise, students should have the opportunity to anonymously rate their teachers. They are very smart kids. They have great insight and opinions. The teachers need to know that they are being watched and held to the highest of expectations."

    "I liked PCDS at first, but as soon as Andrew Rodin hired Lisa Culbertson as Upper School head the school started going downhill. Great teachers started leaving, and they were replaced with subpar followers of Culbertson. She is getting rid of all the AP classes, wants to do away with student/teacher contact and conversations, and wants everything to be related to art. No one is getting into good colleges because they aren't getting good grades because the grading is so hardcore - only a few really smart kids."

    "The high school teachers need to be more closely monitored in the classroom because some of them have excellent qualifications but don't know how to teach. Sometimes I'm amazed at the things I hear and wonder why someone in the administration isn't watching closer (ridiculous rules, intimidation bordering on bullying and humiliation, and correction by students who know the subject matter better). This applies to two teachers. The others are outstanding!"

    "Do not send your child to PCDS. I thought it was great because the teachers are caring and very knowledgeable, bit it's not. Everyone is controlled by the administration and the admin are taking the school in a downhill direction. They want less teacher contact and are making horrible changes to the school - they do not care about the teacher's or student's best interest or learning. Culbertson is the worst, and I hope PCDS decides to fire her she is more interested in spending money on new facilities than keep renowned, good teachers. She wants to get rid of the great teachers and hire new teachers that will just do what she says. She wants to move the school into a direction where art is intertwined into every subject! Not everyone is an artist, and the art teachers grade students on the overall look, not effort. I am sad that the school is going down like this, and like most of my friends do not want to return to PCDS next year."

    "I have been extremely impressed with the knowledge, enthusiasm and commitment shown by the faculty and staff at PCDS. They are truly engaged with the students and share their passion for their subject with their students."
