PSCS is growing and part of that growth involves providing a new focused program for 6th & 7th graders.

A compassionate staff of talented and interesting people work together as a team to provide a nurturing, respectful and vibrant school environment for approximately 50 students in a multi-age setting. We hold those involved with PSCS to very high standards of behavior and demand that everyone strive to build relationships based on mutual trust, honesty, support, and understanding. A primary role of all staff members is to sustain this environment while providing the students with a variety of educational opportunities.


In hiring staff members, PSCS first looks for strength of character and personality as well as deep passions and a willingness to be open to experiencing whatever it is that life offers. It is our belief that people teach who they are.  In addition to this, the ideal candidate will possess some of the following characteristics, skills or experiences:

    - see life as an exciting adventure

    - have experience working with middle school students

    - have a visual arts, performing arts, outdoor education, math, science, and/or counseling background, especially in a teaching capacity
