Why are we asking for donations?

Dear Friends of Pacific Horizons School, 

As you know, PHS has always strived to provide a quality education for its students by keeping class sizes small and by hiring the most qualified staff available. PHS has proven its record of academic excellence in American Samoa. 

In these difficult economic times, it is financially challenging to provide this kind of education. In our attempt to keep tuition costs down and to be able to continue to provide a quality education for the children on our island, we are asking people to consider making a donation.

Know that your donation will help ensure that the legacy of PHS continues for many years to come. 

Even a small contribution makes a difference. 

The school can receive donations via our PayPal account using the below Donate button.
