In the spring of 2017, Philo Hill Magnet Academy, along with three other middle schools in Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools, was chosen as part of Cohort 5 to receive a Verizon Digital Promise Initiative. The four main components of the program are Always Available Access, Professional Learning, STEM Opportunities, and Research. Each student and staff have an iPAD that includes 15GB of data monthly. Our teachers continue to participate in professional development to support students using mobile technology. Teachers are supported so our students can continue to become life-long learners, creators, and problem-solvers in a digital community.
Since the 2018-2019 academic year, we began the transition of our magnet focus to research and innovative design to re-brand our magnet program to better connect our students with the societal, business, education innovations in Forsyth County, NC and the world around us. Check out the PHMA Brochure to read more about our program. We are excited to announce our school renovation project is underway. Visit Philo-Hill Renovation Project to learn more.
