Praise for PJS

Vivian Yu

We love PJS, with its amazing faculty and staff, close-knit community, and diverse student body.  The Performing Arts program helps kids to build their confidence and learn to work as a team.

Michele Kushner

Children learn to express their thoughts and share the cumulation of their research with their classmates and school at every age. This practice has given our eldest not only confidence but research, writing and organizational skills most children do not learn until High School. I see the pride that my children have in their education and the joy they maintain in learning something new.  It’s the best gift we can give them.

- Michele Kushner


Alicia Vaughan

When I think of my family and reflect on our experience at this school, one word comes to mind: home.

Rebecca Lustenberger

The International Baccalaureate program has given our children a wonderfully diverse education and a real appreciation of the world around them.

Bert Russick

Beyond the warmth and support our entire family found at PJS, our son also developed a strong sense of who he is and a love of learning that has helped him to excel in middle school.
