Praise for PJS

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

- Alicia Vaughan


Wow! The teachers made it seem so easy. My husband and I hail them with total awe...such professionals.

- Emily Gottheimer

I just want to say you guys are absolutely amazing. The level of support with remote learning is awesome. The teachers address questions and issues quickly. Having the support with our in-home experience is great. It can be challenging sometimes with two kids but it helps that I am not alone - I have PJS and their teachers. Keep doing what you are doing! The family approach is so important.

-Bernadette Kokolus

While the transition to the virtual classroom has left us all missing one another, I have been in awe with how cohesive the school community has remained, and how effectively the online curriculum has kept both boys engaged. You are all putting forth an incredible effort for our children, and you are providing much-needed normalcy during this difficult time.

- Matt Burd

My child's day was so impressively well organized and he was able to execute most of it with very little guidance.  I'm so grateful for all the work that's gone into making this transition as seamless as possible and can't wait to give all our teachers big hugs in person when we're finally able to be together again!

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

- Rebecca Lustenberger

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.
