PATRICK HENRY HIGH SCHOOL
Patrick Henry High School (PHHS) is located in North Minneapolis, MN. PHHS has many opportunities for students to become successful and reach their goals in life. Herobotics serves as a major recruitment force for PHHS, reaching out to local schools to increase enrollment in our school and STEM-related programs. PHHS provides engaging STEM programs such as the International Baccaulaureate Career-Related Programme (CP), Digital Media, and Project Lead The Way (PLTW). PHHS is one of the few schools in the Minneapolis school district that offers a full range of the PLTW Engineering program, as we've strengthened our school's engineering programs with our business partners, forwarding our curriculum to 21st century industry standards. Our school was also selected as one of the original 20 worldwide sites for the CP, and since then the team's influence has increased enrollment in the program 230%. PHHS's richly diverse population of students with unique traditions and beliefs help our community to teach, and learn together, become global citizens, and promote diversity and inclusion in STEM.
