Port Chester High School is an institution that students and staff are proud to call home. A culturally diverse student body is one of our greatest strengths, and together, we look to build on the school's legacy and rich traditions.
A dynamic administrative team leads a school community that is focused on teaching and learning. Students are supported by professionals who value the importance of academic achievement and are dedicated to ensuring that students receive the highest quality education possible. Everyone here feels part of a team whose mission is to help students do their best by creating a positive atmosphere that permits students to learn and teachers to teach.
Over a third of our students successfully complete at least one Honors, Advanced Placement or college level course at PCHS. We are one of the few Westchester high school authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. College-level courses are offered in cooperation with the Westchester Community College Advanced College Experience Program and SUNY Oneonta.
Outside of the classroom, we offer opportunities for students to develop and grow through participation in numerous athletic, musical and other venues. In the pulsing beat of the award-winning marching band one hears the drumming of the heart of this school. As our athletes race across field and court, one feels the adrenaline rush of Ram Pride. And in art, choir, theater, journalism and a multitude of extracurricular opportunities, students rise to challenge their potential and broaden themselves.
About one-third of our students participate in at least one sport. Our student athletes have won league championships in football, soccer, wrestling, basketball, baseball and track. In addition, we possess a nationally recognized cheer leading program. Award-winning theater, band and choral programs continue to be a tremendous source of pride. Literacy publications showcase our students' journalistic talents, and the number of other clubs and numerous honor societies demonstrates the well-roundedness of our student body.
In "Hamlet", Shakespeare wrote, "We know what we are, but know not what we may be." It is this discovering and uncovering of all of our potentials that is at the heart of education and the essence of Port Chester High School.
