M. Rodgers: As a proud parent of two PCDS students, and having been so for 12 years (Pre-K to 10th grade), I can say without a doubt that Phoenix Country Day School has provided both my boys with a truly fine education. A dozen years into the process and I believe they would attend on Saturday if given the opportunity. The classes are small, the faculty is highly qualified and sincerely interested in each student's success, and the balance between academics, the arts, music and sports provides a wide variety of enriching opportunities for any student.
PCDS has accomplished a central goal our family had when they began pre-Kindergarten. We wanted our boys to develop a love for learning that would stay with them far beyond their high school education. I can say with all honesty that my boys will always take the lessons they've learned at PCDS and apply them to a lifetime of learning and growing as scholars and as people.
We have found the social opportunities to be more than adequate. Our kids come from a middle class background, and even though most of their classmates come from wealthy families, our boys have never, ever felt out of place. PCDS maintains a healthy and diverse student body (a weakness in the past) from a socio-economic and ethnic standpoint. They remain committed to continue to improve diversity and provide opportunities to serve those less fortunate with wide-ranging community service outreach projects.
I may sound like a shill for PCDS, but I am just a proud parent and satisfied customer of a school that takes its mission seriously and has become very good at delivering what they promise. Anyone in Arizona who desires the absolute best education for their children need look no further.
