Contact your Counselor
Your counselors are happy to help! Contact them for information about credits, transcripts, endorsements, graduation plans, college guidance, financial aid questions, future planning and more! We can provide you with GPA, class rank and test scores. They also offer help and guidance with issues in school, family struggles, crisis and personal issues, or if you just need someone to talk to. We are here to offer support and encouragement in a very important stage of life. Counselors can also assist with future planning and college/career guidance. If you have a question about grades it is always best to start with the teacher, but the counselor can help point you in the right direction. For a complete list of teachers at PHS, click here. You are always welcome to stop by the counseling center but scheduling an appointment beforehand ensures that your child's counselor is available to speak with you when you are here and not off campus or in a meeting.
