We know that in order to be happy, safe, and productive, students need guidance and support in all parts of their lives.
The excellent education at Milton Hershey School starts with dedicated teachers who care about each student's learning experience. Classes are small–average of 15 students for each teacher–so each student gets individual attention and support.
Students live in large, comfortable homes with 8-13 students in their own age group. A pair of married houseparents oversee each home, providing the structure that children need and taking an active interest in their development.
