Alum: I transferred to GM after my family moved. I was a freshman who entered before the end of the first semester, so it was hard to settle in. But, there was plenty of school work to devote myself to. There are accelerated, advanced, and basic tracks--suitable for the range of students who attend. In addition, there are lots of different electives to choose from and clubs/groups to join, which contribute to a good learning environment and educational experience.
The teachers are great. Their styles/techniques/personalities vary. Some are fun/laid-back, others, more strict, and then some are a combination. I enjoyed them and did my best to perform to their expectations/standards.
I had memorable times at GM, even though I personally didn't get super involved in school activities or have lots of friends. (But there are plenty of opportunities to do so. It's a good-sized school.) Attending the plays, concerts, football games, and the art show outside of school are some of the things I did.

Alum: Between my own PC experience, and from personally knowing many graduates of comparable college preparatory schools, there's not a better educational experience to be had in SE PA. If I had to name 1 out of many positive features, it'd be the multi-axial approach that PC takes to the definition of "education." Of course, academics are top-notch, but an A+ in Calculus, Language, or History is not ALL that PC teaches a young person. In addition, the elements of service, athletics, arts, diversity, all anchored in a rock solid moral foundation....make PC a place that will shape a student forever. Final draft: Recommended!
