School Notes

  • Students must maintain a "C" or above to receive credit for a course.  PHHS does not give credit for "D"s because we do not believe it shows mastery of content.  Students that fall below will be placed on an academic intervention plan and given mandatory tutoring until they meet the requirement. 
  • Students need 24 credits for graduation.
  • Students are required to complete 20 hours of community service a year.
