Open Quote Despite being a small city school, PAHS offers a surprisingly large, high quality selection of honors, AP, Running Start and "college in high school" offerings to serve college-bound students, as well as a full range of traditional shop and vocational courses for those who are headed for job preparation training.

Every year the school has students accepted to highly competitive colleges, and several National Merit scholars.

Students also compete at the national level for metalworking, woodworking, and pre-med studies competitions.

Additionally the district has a full music program, offering five bands, four orchestras and four choirs, plus an AP Music Theory course. Nearly half of all students take part in at least one music course. 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.
