s you read this report, it will become obvious to you that PDS is thriving. Our boys are achieving and performing at levels that place them among the very best students in the country. Our outstanding teachers are using their skills that have been sharpened and enhanced by professional development opportunities to challenge and inspire their students. Our graduates leave PDS and successfully tackle the rigors of the most competitive middle schools, high schools, colleges and graduate schools.
PDS is indeed preparing boys for tomorrow. PDS boys are the future leaders of this city, state and country. PDS boys are the future ministers, teachers, engineers, physicians, accountants, counselors, scout leaders, fathers and husbands who will provide hope, wisdom and direction to others. PDS boys learn what it means to be godly men and go from PDS with a clear vision of the path they should seek to fulfill godly lives.
Almost sixty years ago, PDS opened its doors on Goodlett and Poplar to fulfill its mission which is to glorify God by developing boys in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. The school remains true to its original mission, and we proudly acknowledge that this will be our goal for today, tomorrow and forever.
We are grateful to so many who are recognized in this report for their hard work and contributions. Their investments help sustain the school’s mission and provide the support needed to make PDS such a wonderful place for a boy to learn and grow.
John J. Colcolough III
Chairman, PDS Board of Trustees
