Educational Exceptionalism: What makes PHES Unique?
You may be aware that another part of what makes our school exceptional is that we are, and have been an IB Primary Years Programme school for over 10 years. PYP is not a curriculum, it's a framework for teaching and learning that empowers our students to take ownership for their learning and fosters a love for learning that will endure well into adolescence and adulthood. As an IB PYP school we teach and strive to live the 10 traits of IB Learners (See chart below):
The 22-23 lottery for newly enrolling students for next school year is running on Thursday 2/10/22 and all open slots based on currently enrolled students who said they are not returning to Providence Hall next school year will be immediately filled. So, if you told us your student would not be returning to Providence Hall next school year (22-23) but now you want your student to return to Providence Hall then you need to complete a NEW Enrollment Intent Google Form to let us know your change of plans before Wednesday 2/9/22!

I also encourage you to watch this TedX video by Peter Gray, who has devoted his life to studying play. His lecture reviews how, in many mammals, play is a natural phenomenon that develops a number of important survival and life skills.
Hello, Providence Hall Parents,
It was so nice to be back to school in person and be able to see each other and interact face-to-face last week. This is what your kids will be learning in social skills this week! Check out this inspiring, cute video about how words affect us, and even affect water! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGapwV3Kw8Q
