The Pembroke Hill School is a college preparatory school where the emphasis is on the whole child.  The four divisions of the school - early childhood, lower school, middle school and upper school - provide excellent educational programs appropriate for the children in that division.  The school provides small classroom environments with some of the finest teachers in the region and a challenging curriculum.  Because of the small size of classes, students are very well known by the adults in the school community who support them and encourage them to reach their full potential.
