My daughter and son both went to Pelham Schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Both of my kids have made the Deans list in college due to Pelham teachers and classes fully preparing them. My daughter will graduate cum laude from The University of Alabama in 2018! This shows that Pelham Schools will do their job to educate! It is up to your child and you as a parent to get involved. Pelham has “ Peer Helpers” to help your High School student with tutoring. Pelham Schools will help your child excell also in music, arts and sports to help your child be a well rounded student in society. I personally know many college students who have excelled on the college level playing sports, participating in their University Band and also excelling academically!

Pelham High School was the first school I attended that I felt included and loved in. Coming from a school where I was bullied and disliked, I was relieved to have found Pelham in middle school and meet the amazing people that I’m lucky to call my friends now. As an upcoming senior at PHS, I’ve watched the school system grow and learn. There isn't much I would change about Pelham other than asking for more staff training with mental health issues. I find that my counselors try to help with mental health, but mainly focus on college admission and scholarships. As someone who struggles with mental health issues, I wish I could have had a more supportive and helpful staff around me sometimes. Other than that, Pelham is inclusive, active, and welcoming.
The teachers there are exceptionally helpful and engaging with the students. The staff care about the students and encourage them to excel in academics. They really do help prepare you for college and I am glad to have my education at Pelham!
