In order to follow this command, we must build relationships. Our teachers intentionally foster relationships with their students and help their students develop healthy relationships with each other and with the Lord. They all feel a deep sense of calling to PCS and to its families and therefore are truly partners with parents in the education of their children. We offer continuing education to our teachers annually, but they often pursue it on their own! Teachers pray for their students, are not afraid to address tough issues and genuinely love what they do and their students. Because God first loved us, we can love others.
