A Unique Learning Environment
Milton Hershey School® (MHS) is devoted to helping students in Pre-K through 12th grade develop academically, behaviorally, physically, socially, and spiritually, with an emphasis on preparing students to lead fulfilling and productive lives after graduation from MHS.
Students at Milton Hershey School live and learn in a three-level structure consisting of an Elementary Division, Middle Division, and Senior Division. Programming is designed around the developmental needs of students in each division and provides a nurturing environment for students as they transition through each grade level.
Additionally, three centralized program areas integrate the work of the divisions and ensure consistency of support throughout students’ MHS experience.
- Applied & Integrated Learning includes curriculum development, the Agricultural & Environmental Education program, Learning Technologies, Visual & Performing Arts education, Year-Round Experience programming, and Independent.
- Student Health Services ensures quality student health in all three divisions provided by MHS that includes medical, dental, psychological, behavioral, and social work services.
- Student Character & Leadership programming includes community service, recreational activities, character and leadership development, the Student Government Association, and Religious Programs.
Working in conjunction with the academic curriculum, these three areas help ensure that students have a combination of learning and life experiences, along with a focus on developing social, emotional, spiritual, and physical health throughout their years at MHS.
