    Posted April 8, 2016

    Challenge week is a series of three days during which students grade 6-8 choose an interest (animation, design thinking, survival skills, Balinese art and music etc) and engage with each other across grade levels through fieldtrips, group challenges, and shared enthusiasm. The students come away from Challenge week with new skills, new friends, a new appreciation for their chosen topic, and, perhaps most importantly, a deeper understanding of themselves.

  • GLIDE Service Trip

    Posted October 13, 2015

    Quotes & Reflections from the PHS Service Blog "Volunteering at Glide again reiterated the fact for me that so much of San Francisco is without food security. For me, Glide was an introduction to the quarter of San Francisco that is not able to support everyday necessities. Through volunteering, we create a community of support. One in four residence of San Francisco is food insecure. So many in our own San Francisco community struggle with everyday necessities while many others live without fully understanding these hardships. Glide is a great way to experience how many in San Francisco cannot provide everyday necessities and feel like your giving back to the community."

  • Mid-Summer Flashback!

    Posted July 9, 2015

    PHS’ class of 2015 took on the Great America’s Physics Day Challenges with remarkable enthusiasm, joy, skill and determination. These science competitions require students to apply middle school habits of mind and to live the PHS mission. Outcomes demonstrate our students are wildly imaginative, inquisitive and care deeply about each other, their learning and the world they live in and explore. These extreme design challenges required that students apply skills across curricular areas to include physics, mathematics, humanities and the arts.
