How can we have high expectations without too much competition?

The school has established milestones of achievement for students that give the PCS community the opportunity to celebrate and recognize achievement. Milestones are not competitive; students work to meet a standard of excellence for a specific project. Some examples are: a well-prepared science laboratory report demonstrating proper use of data analysis; an illustrated story with correct grammar and spelling; a health and nutritional plan; and a well written five-paragraph essay on a theme from history.
