Welcome to Providence Hall Junior High!
If you’re new to Providence Hall, it’s important for you to know that at PHJH “WE ARE A FAMILY”. We tell our students and teachers this every day, and we mean it. To us, this means that we treat each other respectfully, we help each other out, and most importantly, we care about each other.
As an accredited International Baccalaureate school, our Middle Years Programme offers a unique classroom experience for your child. If you visit one of our classrooms you will see students actively engaged in inquiry-based learning and lessons taught in a way that fosters an environment of academic rigor, creativity, and practical problem solving. You will also find a well-functioning system of academic interventions and support that allows students to achieve success according to their own abilities and desires.
We have some wonderful traditions at PHJH that help us create a unique family culture as well as accomplish our school mission. Every day two students are nominated as “Patriot of the Day” by teachers and celebrated over the announcements for doing great things in the school. Every week a faculty or staff member is recognized for his or her service to the school. Students can earn “Patriot Bucks” for doing great things that they can spend at our School Store. Every month we have an assembly that allows us to meet as a school family and learn and grow together. Once a month all of our teachers eat lunch with all of the students. At the end of the year we host what we call “The Patriot Games” which involve academic, physical, and service oriented competitions between students and teachers of all three grades, culminating in one grade level crowned as the year’s champion.
All of our teachers at PHJH are highly certified and trained in IB pedagogy and philosophy. We have two full-time Counselors on staff, Special Education services, as well as a Student Progress Coordinator and Intervention Coordinator who work closely with students to help them succeed.
Our mission at Providence Hall is to help students Think Critically, Communicate Effectively, and Act Responsibly. We accomplish this by staying small enough to provide individualized instruction and support, while remaining large enough to offer a wide variety of courses and extra-curricular opportunities for all of our students.
I hope you’ll get to know us a little better either through our website or a visit to our campus. I’m sure you will fall in love with Providence Hall like I have. Feel free to contact me or our front office if you have any questions. Go Patriots!
