Pisgah High School has been a U.S. News and World Report National Bronze Level School for the last three years. In 2012, PHS had the highest percentage of students scoring proficient or advanced on the English II Subject Area Test. Further, we were ranked 17th nationally for our computer access per student, ranked by U.S. News and World Report in 2010-2011 as having some of the “Most Connected Classrooms.” The Mississippi Department of Education named PHS a Distinguished Title I School in 2010, as well as giving PHS a Star school rating that same year.
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, Western Civilization I and II, Sociology, General Biology I and II, College Algebra, American Literature I, English Literature I, and Spanish I and II. Students may earn up to 38 college hours while still enrolled at PHS.
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.
The mission of Pisgah High School is to prepare every student with the cognitive and social skills necessary to be productive members of an ever-changing global society.
