Overview

Overview

Philadelphia Mennonite High School says

PMHS is an award winning Christian high school that offers a transformative education that equips students for leadership, service and peacemaking. We have a 100% college acceptance rate since we opened in 1998. Students are challenged to develop their leadership skills through athletics, student council and fundraisers. Service is expressed through the 3,000 hours of volunteer service at elementary schools, recreation centers, businesses and organizations. All new students are required to take a conflict resolution class which has contributed to a safe peaceful school culture. Since the world is our classroom, our students visit the rich cultural and historical sites in Greater Philadelphia, the United States area and outside the country. 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".
