This school is very diverse school both culturely and economicaly. The PTCC is outstanding and so is the administration. Our daughter is thriving in this environment even though she is very shy and reserved. Her teacher has taken the time to work with us to find what will work best for her.

Congress offers cross-country, basketball, soccer, strings, spanish and yoga/mindfulness for its students. Congress also provides significant time each day for recesses and outdoor exercise.
The building is very secure and has received District funding to improve the layout and functionality of administration and visitor services/security. School health and personal safety are considered top priorities including nutrition and emotional well being.
