MIDDLE SCHOOL AT PSC 

 
Overview of the Middle School Experience:

Students study English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies every day with talented teachers committed to balancing deep, conceptual learning experiences with skill-building opportunities. Working in groups and individually, students engage with information and issues from multiple perspectives. They explore and develop their own ideas by striving to understand the ideas of others.
