It is my pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful school. We pride ourselves on creating an unparalleled educational environment for children that focuses on their social, emotional, and academic needs and recognizes their individual strengths. All of our classrooms feature two experienced full time educators who use a variety of teaching methods, classroom materials, and technology integration to support students as they grow and learn. This approach ensures that all students receive highly individualized attention throughout the school day. In addition to the strong core academic program, PHS students also have the opportunity to attend up to seven resource classes, along with extracurricular activities and clubs both before and after school.
The Pembroke Hill School motto is Freedom with Responsibility. Our goal is to develop students’ abilities to choose responsible behaviors independently by incorporating the values of respect, compassion, scholarship, and integrity into everything we do. Character education becomes a part of our students’ daily experience through the promotion of these values that support successful choices and create positive and successful attitudes.
As you can see, Pembroke Hill Lower School is a vibrant and proud educational community. I look forward to learning more about your hopes and dreams for your child and helping you make the decision about whether PHS is the right fit for your family.
Dr. David D’Ercole,
Lower School Principal
