Philosophy Statement:
"Patchogue-Medford High School is a comprehensive high school aimed at developing citizens who will be analytical and critical thinkers. All students will be introduced to a balance of the arts and sciences. They will learn to care for their bodies and develop physical prowess. Integral parts of a comprehensive education are learning to respect another's opinion, assuming responsibility, taking a role in local affairs, and developing pride in school and community.

The high school shares in the responsibility for preparing each student for life's goals. This does not mean that a student will be educated as a specialist, but rather, that the student will be given a sufficient background for entering college, technical or commercial school, or to become an apprentice in the world of work.

It is the high school's aim to develop in each student an appreciation of democratic principles. All students are made aware of the other types of government found throughout the world so that they may better analyze, appreciate and understand their own heritage and freedom. This understanding, coupled with knowledge, creates an atmosphere conducive to an enlightened citizenry.

Staff members believe that self-discipline is developed by respecting authority, by promoting the democratic way, and by cherishing the ideals upon which this country was founded. At Patchogue-Medford High School, every effort is put forth to make each student feel the genuine pleasure of learning and the sense of pride the faculty has for those who value effort and achievement."
