Our school offers a diverse selection of educational and extra-curricular opportunities for our students. We're proud of our dedicated staff and the success of our students.
The Mission of Page High School is to empower students through a rigorous and relevant education to meet future challenges.

Dear PHS Sand Devil Families,
Three months remain on the school calendar, and it seems as though the days go by faster and faster as we approach the end of the 2013-2014 school year. Below are a few notes about events happening on the PHS campus.
Today, the spring testing season begins with AIMS. This is the last year sophomores will take AIMS as an assessment of the standards taught in english and math classes. However, the AIMS science exam will still be given for at least two more years to all students enrolled in biology, and students who have not passed the AIMS math and english assessments as sophomores (this year), juniors, or seniors will retake the math and english exams.
During the summer, we will learn what assessment students will take to measure the Arizona College and Career Standards (also known as the Common Core). An upcoming community informational meeting will be at the Page Unified School District governing boardroom later in the spring to talk more about this. In addition to AIMS, Page High School will pilot ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade english assessments for the new Arizona College and Career Ready Standards this spring. An announcement about which classes will take the test will come home in the next parent newsletter. Finally, for all students interested in taking dual enrollment courses next year, the Accuplacer exam will be on Wednesday, April 16. Students must pass this exam in order to enroll in a dual enrollment course. More information on dual enrollment will be in the next parent newsletter.
Speaking of enrollment, registration for the 2014-2015 school year will start in March. On March 12, your student should come home with a 2014-2015 Page High School course description handbook. We will also post this handbook on the Page High School website. Please spend some time with your student looking at the course offerings and selecting classes based on your student’s future career pathway. Students will begin the registration process on Monday, March 24. Once your student selects his or her courses for next year, a printout of course selections will come home for your review. You will need to make any changes to their selections in order to provide us with the most accurate picture of what your student wants to take for next year.
Parent/teacher conferences will be this upcoming month. As you may remember, parent/teacher conferences are typically in the PHS learning center and library; however, with the PHS main building still under construction due to the fire, we will need to find a location for all conferences. The night conferences will be on Wednesday, March 12 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at a location yet to be determined. Then, the following day, March 13, conferences will be from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. We appreciate all of you who show an interest in your child’s education by coming to parent/teacher conferences. As usual, we will have prizes for attendees, and we will provide light snacks.
