Dr. Julie Frugo
Head of school
My name is Julie Frugo and I serve as the Head of School. I have been a member of the PCS team since the school's inception in 2000 where I started as a 4th grade teacher. The second year I moved into administration and have been serving in a variety of leadership roles ever since. I am originally from Chicago and after living in St. Louis I am still a Cubs fan ( its a life long lesson in perseverance:) ). I received my BS in elementary education from Eastern Illinois University and my MS in educational administration from University of Missouri St. Louis. In 2016, I received my Doctoral Degree at UMSL in Character Education--one of my passions. I believe that character education and academics go hand and hand which is why I have found my perfect fit at PCS. I was honored with the Charter School Leader of the Year in 2011, but feel to be engaged in such important work at a place that I love is a higher honor than the award. I am excited to continue working with K-8 students, families and staff to bring the school's mission to life..
