Welcome from Principal Moore


Thank you for your interest in Pearl Preparatory School. The Pearl staff and faculty appreciate the time and exhaustive research, you as concerned parents spend selecting an appropriate elementary school for your family.

Just as a pearl is a grain of sand from the right environment, we feel the home and school must work together as the two shells of an oyster, to prepare students for college and life.

We have built our school from the ground up to promote the positive, individual attention and wholesome environment that can tremendously alter the direction and motivation of a child.

We have carefully combined modern technologies with traditional values to create an atmosphere that says, "Which college should I attend, because I am going to make a difference in the world." We believe that the most important investment any family can make is not just in their child's education but in their child's attitudes towards God, our country, their future and themselves. We hope the accompanying information on our site will answer your questions about Pearl Prep school.

All other interviews are given by the teacher your student will have at Pearl.
