As part of the School’s commitment to nurture and educate every child so he/she can achieve at a high level, Milton Hershey School® has developed the One MHS curriculum around state and national standards and benchmarks. The One MHS curriculum is focused on providing all students the necessary learning to be successful. This curriculum will ensure the total development of your child across all aspects of the MHS experience from scholastic and home life to spirituality and community. Faculty, staff, and administrators all have a shared responsibility and commitment to make sure the students are as successful as they can be.
Definition of Student Success at MHS
A Milton Hershey School student/graduate is a success in a culturally diverse global community when he/she:
- Demonstrates stewardship and gives back to his/her community
- Demonstrates moral and social responsibility and cultural appreciation/sensitivity
- Is self-managing and self-sufficient
- Develops and maintains healthy relationships
- Practices life-long learning
- Demonstrates a balance of wellness in mind, body, and spirit.
This education approach—one that will be continually reviewed and revised—will help your child gain the knowledge, practical and personal skills, and competencies needed for continued study, the realization of career goals, and ultimately, a fulfilling life as a productive, responsible, caring adult.
Learning Assistance and After-school Tutoring
The MHS Learning Assistance Program provides services to students experiencing learning difficulties. Your child can take advantage of extra-help and remedial assistance in reading and math, study skills instruction, speech and language therapy, and an after-school homework club, if necessary.
