Congratulations PCHS Model United Nations Academic Team!

This past week the PCHS Model UN Academic Team traveled to Boston to compete in Boston University's International MUN Conference. Sixteen (16) PCHS delegates competed against 102 other schools and over 1,500 students from across the entire country and around the world. During the closing awards ceremony, in an event where less than 10% of students receive awards for their performances, all 16 PCHS delegates were so honored.
