    My daughter started Kindergarten here and the teachers and staff could not be more wonderful. They really care and it shows the communication is excellent. They take the time to get to know the children and the whole atmosphere is open inviting and positive. This school is proof that no matter where the building is it's the passion and dedication of the people inside that make it a successful and fun place to earn. It has been one great week after another. I'm confident she will get a great education here in so many ways. Thanks.

    This school is everything we hoped it would be from the principal and staff to the classrooms to the curiculium. My granddaughter goes here and she gets everything she needs and more. The one on one with the teacher and Title 1 help is awesome. They are very attentive is the needs of the children and the parents. I couldn't ask for a better school.

    My daughter has been going to Puritas for kindergarden and is now in first grade. She loves it as do I... I do not ever seeing me taking her out of this school. I will never put her into a public school as long as there is a Community in my neighborhood.

    This school reminds me of the elementary school I went to when I was young. After having a child go through the private school system k-8 I put my younger child here and am 100% satisfied. Better academics parental and teacher involvement and better character education.

    My son has been at this school for 3 years. I am very pleased with his education and staff members. Before K my son struggled to learn from me or anyone else including his Pre-K teachers. The teachers at PCS have totally turned him around. He has brought his grades to mainly A's. The teachers lead him to want to do more. They keep him at a level that he is comfortable with. Every staff member know every child in the school by name. Every review I have read by Great Schools are not accurate. The student count - the grades - all of it. I just wanted to make sure that everyone who reads this that not all stats are up to date. Go - See - Find out for yourself. The doors are always open for tours and information about the school.

    I changed my son from a private school to Puritas Community School. The cost of the private school was such a financial strain. Since it is so early in the school year it is to early to determine if I made the right decision but my son seems to be doing well. I have yet to determine if the curriculum is close to what he was doing in the private school. I like the values they teach at the Community school regarding actions and responsibilities. I will re-evaluate Puritas Community School in the future as for their curriculum.
