Principal's Message

Mr. Hufford reading to Kindergarten class
Our mission is educating, empowering, and  inspiring excellence.
Crisman Pledge
As a Crisman learner, I have the courage to take responsibility for my actions.
I will be honest and fair with everyone.
I will show respect and compassion for others.
I will do my personal best.
PTS inspires excellence and opens the possibilities for students, staff, family, and community to see beyond themselves and develop a positive future. We promote the use of CRITICAL VALUES to develop meaningful and productive relationships to create a safe and secure learning environment.
Our schools CULTIVATE PRIDE and are the community's choice to educate their children. We attract and develop leaders in education who desire professional growth and opportunities that are relevant and forward thinking. PTS implements and utilizes technology to meet the needs of our learners and provide them with skills to meet the innovation of tomorrow.
We empower our students with the academic skills and the character traits to view obstacles as opportunities to grow and build resiliency. We focus on student-centered, research-based practices that begin in early childhood and extend beyond the classroom. We embrace a culture that recognizes and celebrates DIVERSITY and CREATIVITY. Our students, staff, family, and community partner to create our nationally recognized school corporation.
Together we excel!
