What does the future of K-12 education look like? How can we prepare students for their future and not our past?
At Presbyterian Day School, we're not just asking that question, we're working on answering it by leading the way with an innovative approach to elementary education.
At Presbyterian Day School, we know how to teach boys, reach them, and channel their energies in positive and productive ways.
PDS is a school of tomorrow for the world of tomorrow. Our curriculum focuses on critical and creative thinking, connecting ideas and collaboration. It is both challenging and current...and engaging and exciting to boys.
Give us a boy, and we'll make him stronger, smarter, happier, and overall, better.
Boys have a natural curiosity about the arts. Whether they are learning to draw or learning to play an instrument, boys love the hands-on, creative approach that we offer at PDS.
Our mission statement is the same as it was in 1949:
Presbyterian Day School strives to glorify God by developing boys in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man
(1 Corinthians 10:31 and Luke 2:52).
A 29-acre campus in the heart of East Memphis.
$20 million in recently funded facilities like our Early Childhood Center, EDGE Studio, Science Center, Lifetime Fitness Center, and turf field.
The Dobbs EDGE Studio is home to collaborative spaces, idea walls, and plenty of tape, pipe cleaners, straws, and streamers to make any idea come to life.
Many of our classrooms have standing desks, bungee chairs for bouncing, and write-on walls and desks for scribbling out ideas.
That’s why each gets his own customized education plan and the support of our staff of learning specialists.
Boys are loud and messy and can't sit still. We're experts at directing that energy.
Boys are loud and messy and can't sit still. And that's completely okay. We're experts at directing that energy.

Macbooks, Mandarin, Design Thinking, and Maker’s Club. Even our littlest guys are learning to code.
