PDS has been blessed with a long history of strong leadership. In this issue, we explore the role of head of school. This year marks a significant milestone in the history of the school—a decade under the leadership of Lee Burns. We mark that occasion by pausing to look back on the PDS’ transition from a school that excelled in the last century to a school that is leading the way in the 21st century.
We also look back at the legacy of the two previous head of schools, Jack Stanford (1972-1979), and Dr. Len Sumner (1979-2000) in a feature article by Jamie Baker.
Presbyterian Day School (PDS) is a private, Christian preschool and elementary school serving boys from 2-years-old through 6th grade for almost 75 years.
With our mission of striving to glorify God by developing boys in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man, we take a holistic approach to education, nurturing the heart, soul, mind, and body of each boy.
