    "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 Their computers and textbooks are really outdated.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."

    "Would not send my child to this school! Horrible administration there that is trying to destroy kids lives instead of help them succeed. There is a big alchohol and drug problem there too that they are blaming the kids for instead of trying to protect the kids from. No attempt to help a child there when asked, administration not trustworthy."

    "I am new to the Prescott area. My friend's son attends this school. I am shocked at the way the school administration handles issues. Don't let your kids get on the wrong side of the vice principal, or they will be pushed and attact to no end. I have raised three children in other school districts and have never seen adults misuse there power in such a harmful disruptive way. The power trip they are on is out of control."

    "This school is the worst!! Do not send your children here if you can avoid it. There are a few good teachers, but very few, most of the better ones have left. The administration is rude to students and parents, dishonest, double team students if they are called to the principle's office. All sorts of issues with the staff, especially at the top of the administrative offices. Have also seen certain students harnessed for minor infractions as well as for the color of their skin. Many good students leave for online school or dropout due to the way they are treated by staff. Can't say enough about how bad this school and the level of animosity that exists towards the current administration. Administration does not care about individual student's success, only about how their numbers stack up to get government funding so they can spend the money on paving the parking lot or adding fences, etc. If they don't like your student they will do whatever they can to get that student to either leave or dropout. Would rate them a minus one if that choice was available. Students have expressed they feel like they are in a prison and not a school to several adults that I know."
