In conjunction with Hinds Community College, students at PHS have the opportunity to enroll in dual credit courses during their junior and senior years of high school. These college courses are taught on our campus by our highly qualified faculty who have met the guidelines outlined by Hinds Community College and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Students receive high school credits for these courses as well. We offer Composition I and II, General Biology I and II, College Algebra, College Trigonometry, College Calculus, English Literature I, American Literature II, and Spanish I and II. Students may earn up to 35 college hours while still enrolled at PHS. These Advanced Placement courses are also available, for which students have the opportunity to earn college credit: AP Language, AP Literature, AP U.S. History, AP Government, and AP Art.
Outside of the core curriculum offered in English, math, social studies, and science, PHS students are offered courses in art, agriculture, music, foreign language, business, and technology.
