I graduated the Phoenixville Area High School (PAHS) in 2017. The district has taken steps to allow different families to be apart of the academics increasing the ethnic groups in the area. They have letters written to parents in English and Spanish. They also offer English as a second language class where kids who don't speaks english are taught and assisted in their other classes. There are also classes for special needs kids. PAHS offers a wide variety of classes, with a large selection of AP classes. They have AP classes starting freshman year. My teachers were always there for me. I played soccer so I traveled a lot and my teachers would email me assignments, review homework and give extensions when needed. We weren't always the best school for sports but there were always fans at home games. We always said that we are a family with a "ph". Everyone had a friend, group or club they could rely on. No school would have given me what I took away from my time at Phoenixville.
Excellent environment. Teachers are relatable and usually understanding. Administration is second to none and the athletics have made a complete 180 in the last 5 five or so years. Students work hard to create and maintain a culture throughout the school. A fantastic place to spend 4 years!
