School Notes

  • PMHS offers a truly unique and exciting secondary education program not available elsewhere in the Philadelphia area. Our education is based upon a traditional secondary school curriculum combined with sound, up-to-date education principles, including the encouragement of multiple learning methods, an alternative school calendar, block scheduling, standards-based instruction, an integrated curriculum, and inclusive classes. Educational program includes standard PA Curriculum Multiple Learning Styles. We recognize that students attain knowledge individually through different learning styles and at different rates of speed. Students are encouraged to approach the academic disciplines using their respective learning strengths. Students are exposed to oral, visual, tactile, and written learning modes, and encouraged to study and learn in any combination which they find most effective for the mastery of each subject. This teaching and learning approach reduces frustration by creating a friendly educational environment. Students at PMHS are given the opportunity to learn according to their individual capability without penalty. A multiple learning approach avoids the trap of pre-determining who will be classified as "academic", "general" or "other".
