PDS Spirit - Winter 2014

In this issue, we explore Design Thinking. Design Thinking is a critical-thinking and problem-solving approach popularized at Stanford that is rapidly becoming a major component of learning at PDS. We think it’s just as revolutionary as teaching the scientific method. You can read more about how we’re implementing it beginning on page 10.

The transformation of our learning spaces continues as we have recently opened a new space dedicated to art and design. Beginning on page 18, you can learn about the Dobbs EDGE Studio, the new home of our art and EDGE Design Thinking programs.

One of the other programs that we’re very excited about is our Young Scholars program. In 2007, an anonymous donor founded a scholarship program to allow us to educate bright, qualified boys whose parents might not otherwise be able to afford tuition. You can read more about how PDS parents Kimberley and Howard Graham chose to support this important program on page 22.

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.
