Welcome to the Special Education department! 

This is “the spot to go” if you are looking for information, advice, programming or ideas about working with your student with learning challenges. Our staff are dedicated to helping PHS students achieve their academic goals.

In this site, you will find links to pages that are good for students to read (“Hey Students!”), and useful for parents to read (“Hey Parents!”), as well as some general information pages.
