2020-2021 High Achiever Program
During the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years, the PCMS faculty and PCMS Foundation Board have collaborated to enhance our High Achiever Program. To further support this process, the Foundation Board’s Academic and Curriculum Committee instituted a “High Achiever” Task Force in order to solicit input from parents and community members regarding the program’s requirements and goals. During our January 17th 2020 Foundation Board meeting, our PCMS Foundation Board voted to implement the enhanced High Achiever Program, which is detailed below, starting in the 2020-2021 school year.
Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, the High Achiever Program will be implemented as follows: Students scoring in the 75th percentile or higher in both Reading and Math on the Fall or Winter Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) will be scheduled in our Gifted classroom environments. For more information regarding this program, please see the attached document.
In order to ensure that we provide all PCMS students with the appropriate level of academic rigor, our teachers implement the "Peachtree Way" of Instruction.
The Peachtree Way consists of teachers implementing (1) a Standards-Based Classroom Instructional Framework (SBCIF), (2) Rigorous questioning and activities daily, and (3) Instruction driven by individual student data.
The SBCIF is a research-based approach to teaching that promotes sound instruction daily, and is used to differentiate instruction for all levels of learners. PCMS teachers work weekly in collaborative planning sessions to develop lessons, as well as remediation and acceleration activities for all students based on individual student needs. Each student’s performance data is used by their teachers to provide the appropriate level of rigor and support.
In an effort to further provide academic challenge to students, PCMS offers the following courses:
- Accelerated Math
- High School Physical Science
- High School Engineering
- High School World Language (French and Spanish)
- High School Art
PCMS provides the STEM Academy to all interested 8th grade students, and will be implementing a School-Wide STEM initiative during the 2020 – 20201 school year.
Our goal at PCMS is to meet each learner where they are academically by providing remediation and acceleration as needed for every student. Our administrative team, our Foundation Board, and the entire PCMS staff will continue to work together to support all students at PCMS.
Please review the attached document for the details or our Higher Achiever Program.
Bus Remind Messages
PCMS used to send Remind messages informing parents the time at which school buses departed the school in the afternoon. Unfortunately, due to cost, PCMS is no longer able to send these Remind messages.

Save Your Pop Tabs!
Save your pop tabs from your soda cans, and bring them to school. We have a large Coca-Cola container in the main lobby and will be collecting them going forward. The pop tabs will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House.
