Our Mission, Vision, and Core Values

PHMA Vision

To create technology enhanced learning environments that connect to and extend beyond the classrooms wherein students, teachers, families, and the community engage in promoting student learning through inquiry-based and problem-based learning approaches while using innovative teaching and learning techniques.
