    My child attended PHES from K-6. She had a good foundation for reading, writing and math problem solving. Participating in Chorus, CML Math contests, Library Club, Student Council, and Speech Festivals made her a well rounded student. I was very pleased with the teachers, administration and staff at PHES.
