Preston, Where We All Belong



Learning Culture

We believe it takes a true partnership among students, parents, staff, and the community to create the quality learning environment we have at Preston—an environment which stresses relationships, relevancy, and rigor. All programs, core academics, and electives such as music, art, drama, and athletics are important and are considered a significant aspect of our learning environment.

Academic Environment

The Preston staff seeks to challenge students academically through the rigor included in each class. Preston’s unique population allows us to provide wonderful opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). This provides students with relevant 21st century learning in a structured learning environment.

Students have a total of five classes each day on a modified schedule. The weeks are divided into purple days and teal days which rotate.  Each student attends different classes based on the color day. 

Instructional & Enrichment Programs

Preston students may participate in chamber orchestra, select choirs, jazz band, writing club, Math Counts, drama productions, outdoor club, Robotics, Science Olympiad, and more.

We believe in students being actively involved in their school. The Preston WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) program offers leadership opportunities in many areas.

Opportunities for Parents

Parents serve on Preston Parent Organization (PPO), sponsor fundraising events and family activity nights, and take an active role on the School Achievement Team (SAT). Volunteers log more than 1,000 hours each year.
