High school and the diploma are no longer an end point. No moving from one box to the next. Our high school intends to be a process of learning where students create individual pathways and move along them in directions and at rates related to their needs, interests, and potentials.
At Phoenix Charter School we are preparing students to be travelers, not arrivers, and with a process so integrated it is difficult to tell where one education component leaves off and the other begins.
“The teachers here are great! There are a lot of hands-on classes to choose from, I like FBLA and Women in Trades. I really like that everyone knows everyone here, it makes the school feel more like a home.”
—Caitlyn, Phoenix Sophomore
Hands-on, applied learning is one of the core values at Phoenix Charter School. Blending traditional high school subjects with in the field activities keeps things fresh.
Through real life activities our students also get out of the classroom and into the community! Sounds great right? Click hereto learn more about Career & Technical Education Programs at Phoenix.
Is Phoenix Charter School easier than other high schools?
No, Phoenix students are required to complete the same state testing and have the same graduation requirements as other public high schools in Oregon. Phoenix is designed to meet the needs of students through a hands-on learning approach so the coursework is often different than traditional high school environments.
Are Phoenix Charter School teachers highly qualified?
Yes, Phoenix has highly qualified teachers. All teachers at Phoenix are licensed and registered with the Oregon Teacher Standards & Practices Commission (TSPC).
“I like the non-traditional high school environment at Phoenix. I feel like the teachers actually want to and do help me, unlike other schools I’ve attended. It is just a much better learning space for me.”
