PDS is a great school if you like small, close-knit community. you get to interact a lot with your teachers and really get to know your classmates. PDS has great humanities/literature program and the science program are great if you are interested in biology or physics. However, due to the small size of the school there are not enough resources to have a wide variety of subjects, such as economics. Although the school don't offer APs teachers help student prep for exams in Calc. In general people at pds are very liberal and open to things.

A small, intimate environment where your child will never get lost. A progressive school with humanistic values. Accepting and inclusive. Students are accepted for who they are. Faculty should have better remuneration. Administration needs greater transparency.
PDS is an amazing place to get an education. A students opportunity to create, invent and produce are limitless. The atmosphere is safe, supportive and welcoming of new ideas. The school can be described as controlled freedom where the academics are tops and the creativity is endlessly supported. I highly recommend this school for all grades.
