Prince of Peace Catholic School (POPCS), a parochial school located in Plano, Texas, serves as one of the newest and largest elementary schools in the Diocese of Dallas. The community adheres to and promotes the mission of instilling strong Catholic values, fostering lives of faith and servant leadership, providing a challenging academic environment, and inspiring each student to shine to the fullest extent of his or her God-given potential.

The highly experienced faculty, in conjunction with the community, is committed to growing in understanding of how to best serve individual students through professional development and continued education. 21st century skills are fostered through this joint effort so students are prepared for future success.

POPCS focuses on faith and servant leadership which helps students see the importance of service and social justice. For example, students support their sister school in Honduras. Classrooms adopt a Honduran student as a reminder of global connections and the commitment to developing servant leaders.

Along with service, POPCS focuses on faith, manifested in how students treat others. POPCS began the Virtue Based Restorative Discipline (VBRD) initiative which teaches students to live a life of virtue and make connections between actions and the impact on others. VBRD teaches students to treat others with dignity and respect.

An essential part of helping students reach their God-given potential is the inclusion of opportunities to promote talents and interests through leadership in a variety of extra-curricular activities. Participating in these activities fosters service, leadership, and intellectual, spiritual, and moral growth.
