Academic tools

At Prishtina High School, we use all available resources to create an individualized learning environment that unlocks the academic potential of each student. A student/teacher ratio of 9 to 1 keeps classes small, which allows for personalized curricula and direct feedback for each student.

While individualized instruction is the academic foundation of each, PHS faculty are encourage to use all available resources to inspire students to obtain the most from the learning experience.

Accordingly, the faculty at PHS incorporate into lessons the latest available academic and educational tools available on the internet.
