    Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School strives to provide a quality educational experience needed to empower students to engage in critical thinking and social transformation, from the classroom to the Puerto Rican community, based on the philosophical foundation of self-determination, a methodology of self-actualization and an ethics of self-reliance.

    We offer basic skills training with activities in technology, urban agriculture, media production and communications, critical art, and participatory action research, as well as college preparatory coursework through an ongoing partnership with Wright College. Classroom instruction is primarily project and problem based with an emphasis on developing higher order thinking skills of inquiry and analysis in place of rote memorization. Planning for the years to come, our curriculum will have social ecology as a conceptual centerpiece, framing student learning around three experimental stations: a hydroponics-based greenhouse on the roof of PACHS; soil-based community gardens in and around Humboldt Park; and tropical soil-based agriculture on the island of Puerto Rico.
