We strive to developing 21st Century competencies by supporting students with the technology and opportunities that will enhance inquiry skills, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Students in grades 9-12 will have access to 1:1 technology providing for more opportunities for project-based learning. We utilize our technology resources to enhance the learning environment. Each classroom is outfitted with a Smart board and various other technology enhancements. Our updated computer lab, mobile Ipad and laptop carts provide exceptional learning tools.
PFHS curriculum incorporates experiences that build students' skills in critical thinking, problem solving, questioning strategies, reasoning, and creative expression. As stated above our goal is to prepare our students for an ever-changing world and we don’t let the four walls of our building limit that.
PFHS has all-school events for parents and community members such as Open House, Homecoming, Winter Carnival, Student Showcases, End of the Year Celebration, and Student Concerts. Our students also participate in many athletic and co-curricular offerings throughout the year.
The school is organized as a 9-12 school with rotating classes. Our student to teacher ratio is often times 12 to 1. Students are provided with specialized instruction in FACE, Technology Education, Virtual Education, Chemistry, Business Education to name a few! Students with learning disabilities and those who are learning English as their second language receive individualized instruction as needed from the E.L.L. and Special Education Departments.
