Why PLN?


PLN believes that children learn best when they are taught holistically, within the context of their lives – we engage parents to ensure what happens in the classroom continues at home. With counselors, social workers, and family support specialists on staff across our schools meeting regularly, our students and families can be set for success.


Students may arrive as early as 7:00 a.m. to ensure parents/guardians have time to get to work safely. Breakfast is also available to students. 

The After-School Program provides students with a safe and engaging environment, all activities support core curriculum with enriching experiences and opportunities to reinforce and enhance academic achievement and offers:
  • Academic support, homework assistance, academic enrichment 
  • Robotics, coding, and science 
  • Creative expression involving arts, crafts, music, and dance—many opportunities in partnership with artists and arts organizations 
  • Social-emotional learning, confidence building 
  • Physical recreation, organized sports, and team building activities
  • Field trips and special events
