Notable Alumni

The PDS alumni list reads like a who’s-who among the Memphis community. Our graduates matriculate to many of the nation’s finest universities. In an era when boys are under performing and disengaging from schools around the country, our boys are excited about learning, developing critical and creative thinking skills, and gaining a vision of what it means to be a man.
