  About The School  

Our Philosophy, Mission, Goals, and Theme


Phillips Preparatory School believes in educating the student to his/her highest level of individual ability through a diversified advanced international baccalaureate curriculum.  The curriculum provides experiences for academic exploration, extension, and mastery of core subjects with emphasis placed on project based learning opportunities.


The educational program for the student is a comprehensive process in a disciplined environment that fosters the international baccalaureate learner profile:  caring, knowledgeable, risk-takers, reflective, thinkers, open-minded, communicators, inquirers, principled, and balanced. The program is designed to significantly challenge the student to be creative, self-confident, independent in action, constructively critical in thought, and effective in communication.  Each Phillips Preparatory student will develop appropriate skills to be successful academically, socially, and culturally in our global society.




The mission of Phillips Preparatory School is to produce globally-minded individuals who are compassionate, self-directed, goal-oriented, and technologically-literate.


 Our mission will be accomplished by providing an innovative college and career-focused curriculum that encourages curiosity, instills responsibility, and cultivates life-long learners who seek to create a better and more peaceful world.




Phillips Preparatory School will foster an environment that will afford each student the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, strategies, and skills needed to become a lifelong learner.  This school will encourage the student to develop thinking skills; to acquire skills for obtaining, organizing, and using knowledge; and to expand the skills for working cooperatively and getting along with others.


A structured, instructional program will be provided to meet the present and future needs of the student in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains.  Learning experiences will be included to:

---Achieve mastery in language and literature, language acquisition, physical education, mathematics, science, individuals and societies, design, and electives in an organized, disciplined, and systematic teaching/learning environment.
