Our Mission

Our Mission Image
PHOENIX Community Learning Center (PCLC) believes that students learn best when they are consistently challenged to develop and use their higher order thinking skills. We believe that a curriculum focused on mastery in all academic content areas, but designed to challenge students to develop skills related to inquiry, critical thinking, problem solving, reflection, collaboration, ethics and work habits is needed if students are to become true lifelong learners.
We believe that the task of developing students’ higher order thinking skills should be brought to the forefront of the curriculum and used as a guide for teachers in ensuring that students know how to apply and use learned information and facts in their everyday life.

Superintendent’s Message

Superintendent’s Message Image
My name is Melissa Brown and I am very excited to return for my second year as Superintendent of PHOENIX Community Learning Center (PCLC). I am honored to continue to lead such an amazing, progressive school community.
I come to you with 21 years of experience in education, ranging from elementary to middle and high school levels. I have served as a teacher, principal, intervention specialist, Title I math instructor and reading instructor. Those rewarding experiences have helped me see the social, academic, and behavioral transitions from kindergarten to senior year of high school. I fully believe that educators are our societal heroes. Educators have an immeasurable impact on the lives of students while students are in their classrooms and beyond.
Our mission at PCLC is to maintain and grow a rigorous teaching and learning environment that provides every student with a sense of belonging, while helping students grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially. We will ensure that all students have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. It is critical to every student's success that they graduate from high school with the habits of mind and skills necessary to pursue and achieve their goals and dreams.
We know that the past few years have been highly stressful for school districts across our State and our nation. Many schools, including the PCLC, struggled with the issue of how to best educate their students, while keeping everyone as safe as possible during a pandemic that none of us could have predicted or foreseen. Our primary goal is to continue to support the teachers and staff so that they can support our students. We do this by providing the teachers with the tools they need to be successful which, in turn, helps our students grow and prosper. We believe that great schools are the result of great teachers.  
We are reaching out to students, parents, families, and members of the community for your participation as we partner together to provide the best instruction possible while keeping all students and staff safe. Trust that I will stand by you, collaborate with you, and be your ally in serving ALL members of our community. Again, I am thrilled to continue my work as the Superintendent of PCLC and look forward to working with you very soon.
In service,
Melissa Brown
