Our Teachers

Our teachers do so much more than deliver curriculum. They are the driving force behind the fulfillment of the PBLCS mission. In addition to educating our scholars, they are mentors who shape the lives of the next generation of leaders. Because we want to ensure that their time on our campus improves their lives, our teachers are carefully selected staff members who share our enthusiasm towards lifelong learning—for themselves and their students.

Our teachers are dedicated and focused on individualizing learning for each scholar through rigorous arts infused instruction. They engage in 160 hours of professional development throughout the year. This includes whole group training as well as coaching sessions focused on individual educator growth. Our teachers and instructional support staff understand the developmental levels of scholars, and provide intense support to help our scholars develop the skills they need socially and emotionally in addition to academically.
