Our District's History
Phoenix High School History
Phoenix High School opened in 1909 with nine freshman students in a brick building (which is now Phoenix Elementary School). The school became an accredited four-year high school with 36 students in 1915. A new school was built in 1948 on the site where Phoenix High School now stands. In 1960, the Phoenix and Talent School Districts merged into a single district, with all 9th through 12th graders attending Phoenix High School. The school was remodeled in 1991 and now serves approximately 600 students.
Phoenix HS Alumni
We are proud of all who are affiliated with our school district. Phoenix High School graduates may be found across the nation and throughout the world. Knowledge of their endeavors and adventures inspire our current students, and we maintain an ‘Alumni Wall’ at the school to honor these alumni.
The graduates of Phoenix High School have continued on to go great things, most importantly the positive affect they have had upon the communities in which they have settled.
We believe in Restorative Justice
Restorative Justice provides a framework for building student accountability and responding to wrongdoing while strengthening student and community relationships. It is not a singular program or process, rather a philosophy and practice based on a core set of principles that emphasize healing and repair over punishment, inclusion over exclusion, and individual accountability with a high level of community support. Restorative justice is increasingly being applied to address youth behavior, rule violations, and to improve school climate and culture. Phoenix High School and Talent Middle School staffs work in partnership with Resolve to implement a whole-school approach to applying restorative practices.
