High expectations draw out great results. They offer all of the extracurricular activities of art, sports, and music programs. Athletics are given their fair share of public appeal, but the individual character of each athlete is cultivated while participating on the team. No school is perfect, but PHHS has done incredibly well to prepare the students for the next phase of life...it is either welcomed or resisted and the ones who welcome the challenge are the ones who accomplish much in their lives. It is not about how much or how little money you have to say you will succed, but it is the ability to never give up on yourself in this world.
