    It's the season for summer reading!  Visit any Birmingham Public Library location beginning May 18th to register your child for summer reading.  Statistics show that students who read during the summer achieve at a higher level in school than students who do not.  So help your child avoid the "summer slide" by visiting your public library.

Welcome to John Herbert Phillips Academy; A PYP and MYP authorized IB World School.

JHPA is committed to ensure students fulfill their dreams through our rigorous school programs, assessments and committed community outreach. We strive to lead our students to become independent, critical thinkers, and life-long learners while fostering a respect for diversity within a global society.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.  To this end, the IB works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.  These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
