PTS is home to a student population that is increasingly diverse in its demographics, including race, socioeconomic makeup, special education needs, and language. Our work in diversity, equity, and inclusion addresses the unique needs of our students while creating a safe and collaborative school climate for all. As a school district, PTS is committed to continually developing a culturally relevant and responsive school environment.
Through a robust curriculum, our teachers activate students' prior knowledge, make learning contextual, encourage students to leverage their own cultural capital, consider our environment as we share resources, and build relationships. When we can break down barriers and create a school environment in which all students feel safe, understood, and appreciated, true learning and growth can take place.
