Drexel Hill Middle School operates under a traditional middle school “house system.” This helps the teams create their own communities of learning in which students are able to remain n the same general area for their basic subject classes. Teachers and students in these learning communities develop meaningful relationships that help that encourage teamwork. Students are also given the opportunity to explore art, computers, family & consumer science, health, music, technology, physical education, foreign language, or process skills during their years at Drexel Hill Middle School.

Our intramural program includes an array of sports and clubs to meet the diverse interests of our students.
