Welcome to our website for the 2018-2019 school year. Our site has up to date PMHS news, events, and other school programs and activities.
This year, PMHS teachers and administrators will continue working towards authorization as an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Middle Years Programme in grades 9 and 10. Teachers will be meeting in their subject-area departments to develop engaging, inquiry-based classroom experiences that are hands-on, student-centered, authentic, and reflective of developments in New York State Standards. We will also be working together to integrate 10 attributes of the "IB Learner Profile" (Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, Reflective) into our Writing Seminar course.
We will also offer several new courses, including Syracuse University Project Advance Practices in Academic Writing as well as Presentational Speaking and Introduction to the Criminal Justice System in the U.S. from W.C.C. (S.U.N.Y.) Our teachers have been busy developing the curriculum as well as attending training for these courses.
I encourage you to contact me (Jclark@pelhamschools.org) any time for additional information on our website, courses, communications options or activities at our school.
