About Us


Paxon Hollow, recognized by the Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education as an outstanding middle school, partners with parents and community to create an environment that fosters students’ emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.  We provide our students with the skills necessary to become successful citizens and life-long learners. 

At Paxon Hollow Middle School we offer an exemplary curriculum. Our program is adapted for all levels of learners, from the struggling to the gifted. We have advanced programs in science, mathematics, language arts, social studies, and world language. Our strong academic program is evidenced by standardized test scores over and above the national averages.

Students have a wide variety of experiences in our related arts including an art program that would rival many high school programs, a 21st century physical education program that goes beyond the traditional and includes biking, climbing, hiking, and physical fitness, and a family and consumer science curriculum with a focus on community service.  Students are exposed to hands on STEM curriculum through our technology education program and over a third of our students are a part of our musical performance groups which include a concert, marching, and jazz bands, steel drums, orchestra, and chorus.

Paxon Hollow Middle School is committed to providing numerous opportunities to recognize, engage, and support children's developmental and affective needs. Research has shown that students gain many benefits from participation in extracurricular activities. At Paxon Hollow Middle School the student day does not end when the academics are completed.  We have an extra-curricular program to meet the needs of all. Our comprehensive athletic program includes: field hockey, football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse, softball, and track.  Students have multiple clubs in which they can participate including: Art Club, Chess Club, Debate Club, Recycling Club, Future Business Leaders of America, Student Council, Sewing Club, Athletic Council, Drama Club, Reading Olympics, Writers of the Hollow, Sign Language Club, French Club, Dance Team, and Scrabble Club.

We have an active PTO which provides our school with continued support and funds. In return our commitment to the community is evidenced by our many fundraising activities. The highlight of the year is the annual Potter Cup, a competition with a rival middle school which includes a boys’ basketball game, girls’ basketball game, and a wrestling match. The event has a carnival like atmosphere and offers activities for the entire family.  More than 2,000 people attend each year. This event has raised over $300,000 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand. The Potter Cup has been recognized by Alex’s Lemonade Stand as one of their top 100 fundraisers.

Together we are the school that makes a difference.
