    'Believing in Education and Reaching for Success'

    Believing in a climate of mutual respect of inquiry-based learning where every child is encouraged to strive for excellence.

    Everyone, including staff, students, parents, and the community, are actively involved, and engaged, in our Character Education Program, which will cultivate a diverse and successful school environment.

    All stakeholders are dedicated to providing a climate of high expectations where all students and staff are valued.

    Realize that parental involvement, support, and accountability is key, leads to, and fosters high student achievement.

    Success will come with a solid educational foundation to empower the growth and development of our students so that No child is Left Behind.


    To provide a great education that empowers all students and contributes to thriving communities. Our mission statement defines the scope of our work and communicates what we hope to contribute to society as a result.


    PGCPS will be a PROUD school system recognized for providing education services which ensure that every student in our diverse school district graduates ready for college and careers in a global society. Our vision statement paints a future where all students, regardless of background or experiences, have access to high-quality learning environments, a broad array of educational opportunities, and effective support systems that equip them to graduate college and career ready.

    Our goal is to have 80% of our students reading on or above grade level by the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
