Open Quote As a second generation alumni and higher education instructor, I know how long Phoenixville Area High School prepared for my own children to pass through its doors. The educators and opportunities are there like no where else in the County. PAHS offers college level accredited courses at lower or no cost to all students from teachers with Masters or PhD (unlike most of our county's high schools). The education is holistically approached to not only advance the student academically (a high rate of students complete college after graduating from PAHS) but also individually and with passion. PAHS is an inclusive environment in a predominantly singular socio-economic, ethically isolated and fiscally diverse population. PAHS students are prepared to take on the world! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
