School Description

The goal of Roots PCS is to groom productive, well-rounded leaders for tomorrow. The mission of Roots PCS is to offer a culturally relevant and academically stimulating curriculum. We believe that by giving students an appreciation of their land, history, and culture, we inspire and motivate them to maintain high academic standards and social ideals. All subjects align with the Common Core State Standards. The program utilizes an open-space facility design for grades PK3 through 5. We have had two Ben Carson Scholars. Our students continue their education at some of the top-ranked middle schools in the city.
