The excellent education at Milton Hershey School starts with dedicated teachers who care about each students learning experience. Classes are small an average of 15 students for each teacher, so each student gets individual attention and support.
Today, the prekindergarten-12th grade Milton Hershey School is a cost-free, private, coeducational home and school for children from families of low income. Milton S. Hershey, the chocolate pioneer, and his wife Catherine established a trust that completely funds the school to this day, helping Milton Hershey School operate with much more financial stability than most public or private schools experience. We believe all children deserve the very best education regardless of their financial circumstances, and the chance to reach their top potential.
