I attended Princeton Charter School from Kindergarten all the way through 8th grade. It was a great experience, and I will really miss the school.
Academically, PCS is one of the best elementary/middle schools out there. They have exceptionally strong Math and Language departments. However, the one of the best parts about this school are the teachers. They truly care about the students and push each and every one of them to be successful.
There's also a strong community supporting the students. Some of my favorite Charter memories come from the various Picnics, Carnivals, and Field Days we did. I strongly recommend Princeton Charter School for everybody! I'll miss you, PCS!

Amazing school with exceptional academics, engaged teachers, true family feel and involved community. A full grade level ahead math and language, excellent world languages (French or Spanish), engaging specials, wonderful after school options. Great support for students and great atmosphere and environment. We moved here after spending a few years in another elementary school (which we also loved), and we have been blown away!
As a Class of '20 alum with 3 years of experience, I can definitely say that I will miss coming to PCS. Even though I was only there for my middle school years, I was able to meet some of the best friends and teachers whom I still contact regularly.

I would also like to share about our move to remote learning this past year: in the middle of March, we received news that we would be shutting down the school indefinitely. As you can probably expect, all of the students were filled at first with joy, then with apprehension. This apprehension was short-lived, as the school only required a week's turnaround before regular Zoom classes and homework were put into effect. To add on, the administration remained in close contact with the rest of us, putting out weekly updates regarding the situation and what would be going on, especially for us 8th graders and what we would do for our graduation ceremony.

Take it from an alum: coming here is more than worth it if you get the chance.
