Our Mission: Youth of Pelham

As hard as we work to educate students in the classroom, we know that effective education of the whole child only occurs when we work together as a school system and community.

In light of national conversation around the dynamics between boys and girls, many parents are grappling with ways to ensure their children—sons and daughters—understand empathy, consent, and respect.
