Patrick Henry High School
Thank you for visiting the Patrick Henry High School Website.
Our staff consists of nearly 30 adults (including certified and classified staff) who help to provide a great learning environment for all of the students that walk the halls of PHHS. We are fortunate to be able to serve approximately 300 students both on our campus and at Four County Career Center.
The district’s vision statement talks about creating life-long learners. At PHHS, we believe that to be of the utmost importance. After the four years students spend at PHHS, they will transition into the real world. Our goal is to be able to foster these life-long learners and prepare them for the real world challenges they will face.
Please contact me with any questions you may have. I can be reached by phone (419-274-3015) or by email (email@example.com).
GO BIG RED.

Here is the Spring End of Course Exam parent communication. This letter outlines a new testing schedule for us this year. This new schedule has some delayed starts for non-testing classes on particular days.
If you have a question about the state-mandated End of Course Exams, you can read more about them here.
Please review the letter. If you have any questions, contact me.
Review this information about the upcoming Accuplacer test.
The Accuplacer is a test used to help determine what college courses you may qualify for. This test would be applicable to any student that is considering College Credit Plus courses next year and has not already qualified to take those courses.
Read the linked document for more information and registration directions.
PHHS will NOT be sending home hard copy grade cards for the 2017-2018 school year. Please monitor your student’s grades through PowerSchool. If you don’t have your PowerSchool account set up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to do so. Provide them with your name and name of your student(s) in that email.
We are providing the option to still receive a hard copy grade card for those who would want it. You must have your request filled out by 10/27/17. You can make that request here. The form doesn’t require you to click on the “edit” button. You can simply fill in your information.
Please contact the high school office if you have any questions.
The Ohio Department of Education has updated 4 new honor diploma types for students. There will be a meeting to outline them for parents and students on Wednesday, October 25th at 7:00 PM in the HS cafeteria. Mr. Biederstedt and Mr. West, along with the various subject teams, have created literature for you to assist in organizing things needed to follow these new pathways.
If your child plans to earn an honor diploma, your attendance is needed as there are many stipulations to explain. Achieving one of the new honor diplomas will take considerable planning on the student's part. You may use this link to preview the changes being made. New diploma types include: I.B., STEM, Arts, and Social Studies. Please note that students aiming for Career Tech honor diplomas have nothing new to update.

As a result of some feedback, we will offer a “starter” list of supplies for the school year. This list does not contain all the possible needed supplies. Some supplies are dependent on the classes a student is enrolled in. Students can get those supply lists or request from teachers at the beginning of the school year. Here is the list.
The graduation requirements are changing starting with the class of 2018. This sophomore class will be the last class required to pass the OGT to graduate. Click here to read more about the new graduation requirements.
Please view a presentation for more information.
Compulsory attendance laws have changed in the State of Ohio. Absences are not measured in days any further. They will now be measured in hours. Read this document for more guidance. Parents, please be advised. The juvenile court system will be involved earlier in truant and excessive absents.
The Patrick Henry Board Of Education has approved a student athlete random drug testing policy. Student athletes in grades 9-12 will be tested randomly during the athletic seasons they participate. In the policy is a consent form. The consent form must be signed by the student athlete and a parent/guardian for the student to participate in the sport season. Please view the policy, a quick FYI document and the consent form with the below links.
Parents/Guardians: If you need assistance logging into powerschool because of a lost password or being unsure of what your password is, the tech department can help. Send an email to email@example.com. Provide them with your name and needed information. They will respond in a timely manner.
