How do I make an appointment with my school counselor?

Appointments can be made by contacting your counselor through email or by phone. You are also welcome to come in at break, lunch, or after school to make an appointment through the Registrar.

What should I do if I am struggling in my classes?

See our Academic Resources page. If you are still struggling after trying those options make an appointment with your counselor to talk about additional options and strategies.


How do I drop or withdraw from a course?

Drops: Students may request to drop courses up to the end of the second week of the semester, with the consent of the counselor and parent and in accordance with the current scheduling guidelines. Courses that have been dropped by the second week will not appear on the student’s transcript.

Withdrawals: Students may withdraw from a course up to the end of the sixth week of the semester. Students who have teacher, counselor and parent approval to withdraw from a course will receive a “W/F” which will appear on the transcript. A "W/F" is calculated into a student's GPA as an F.


Can I enroll at Phoenix High School if I don't live in the Phoenix-Talent School District?
 

Yes, but you must request an "inter district transfer" from the district you currently reside in. Contact your the District Office of the district you're living in to start the process.
