School Background

Prishtina High School, a K-12 grade school, offers its students a premier college-preparatory education, certainly among the best in the country.

The PHS mission is to provide a caring, learning community where students from a vast array of nations, ethnicities, and religions can learn from each other, work together in unity, and accept the challenge of changing the world for the better. PHS prepares international students to be life-long learners, effective communicators, responsible citizens, healthy people, and spiritually sensitive individuals. PHS partners with parents in their role to instruct their children in an environment where ethics, morals, and values are taught and modeled. In this partnership, PHS commits to providing a dynamic, challenging, and holistic education that recognizes the personal uniqueness of each student and develops them into the person they were created to be.
