PWHS team captains celebrate the school being honored with an award for sportsmanship

Through team building exercises and other building-level initiatives, Colonial students learn to take responsibility for their own actions as well as to recognize, appreciate and respect differences in others. Students are also encouraged to become leaders by modeling good behavior, carrying out acts of kindness and calling attention to inappropriate behavior.

Colonial was the first school district in Montgomery County to have both a high school and middle school certified as No Place for Hate® schools by the Philadelphia Chapter of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Colonial's anti-bullying and climate improvement efforts have been recognized further by the ADL and highlighted in the organization's annual report.
