    "Positives: -Many clubs and sports -Still a few good teachers -10 AP classes offered -Exposure to real everyday people (you want your child to experience this, don't put them into an ivory tower (tiger moms I am looking at you)) -Chance for a real high school experience Negatives: -Far too many lazy and incompetent teachers (99% is busywork, yes, even for "AP" classes) -No money (the review on the song "Friday" being repeated over again is no lie) -Unclean facilities -Class size (Over 50 students in one small room is common) -Planning/guidance for college is literally nonexistent and even counterproductive at times -Drugs and physical intimacy are everywhere -Inflexible administration If your goal is a fantastic university, you best be prepared to teach yourself quantum mechanics, write an orchestra, and single-handedly save a dying village. Why? Well, because PHS will actually fight against you to keep you with the policy "no child left behind." They will NEVER promote/nurture a child looking to further their knowledge or go beyond. If your goal is a simple day job, learn to write a resume and hold an interview now, because PHS sure won't teach you how."

    "I have one child in this school. He had some minor behavioral issues in his previous school but not here. He has matured so much at PHS. The Principal, Mrs. Hillig, is very fair. I know several incidents where she dealt with situations with understanding for the students and not in any way trying to "get" students or ruin their lives as another review suggested in the past. The sports program is awesome. There are endless activities and programs for students to choose. One particular thing they do here is offer a free period during which students may go to their clubs or activities every Friday. But if a student is missing work in any class or has a low grade they must use that time to make it up or attend remediation. It is a very intelligent built in motivator for students to take initiative and keep their grades up. I have been extremely impressed with PHS. I wish that programs weren't so costly, but at least all the payments made for the programs are tax deductable and entirely refundable."

    "We have one son who recently graduated from PHS, and 3 more kids who attend PHS now. They all are receiving an excellent education at a school with a variety of great programs and some of the best teachers we have encountered. We are especially impressed with the new administration and with great programs like JROTC, Japanese, band, dual-enrollment, and JTED classes available. The AP courses are also top-notch. PHS has some of the best AP and AIMS test scores in the state, and consistently produces Flinn Scholars, military academy appointees, and other top scholars who go on to success and leadership in Arizona and around the country. The negative comments on this site sound like sour grapes to me."

    "I am a former student from PHS. They are a terrible school. I went for all four years. The administration is really bad. The vice principal has it out every student as soon as they walk in. She goes into classrooms just to confiscate hats and cell phones, interrupting the learning environment. The school counselors claim to help you be on track for graduation but they waited to tell me that I had lost credits in my classes, that I had been passing with flying colors, for being 2 absences over the limit, only 6 weeks before school ended, now I am stuck doing summer school & having to pay them $150 dollars. Ever since budget cuts all they care about is money. If a student is not wearing his or her school ID they are charged a dollar to their school account for a temporary one, each day they forget it. They recently had a school fundraiser, where they would play looped clips of Rebecca Black saying "Friday" over and over again, as well as the Barney and friends theme song, as a minute bell between classes to get students to pay money for microwaves in the cafeteria. Their computers and textbooks are really outdated. Please, for the sake of humanity, do not send your child here."
