Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,
As the Principal of Pleasant Hill High School, I would like to welcome you to the PHHS Website.  This website has been designed as a resource to access school news and information.  It is my hope that you are able to become familiar with our school, its policies, and other procedures. 
The mission at Pleasant Hill High School is to prepare students for a variety of opportunities through a quality education.  The courses offered are designed to allow all students to achieve their post-secondary goals.  Our staff here at PHHS take great pride in creating professional relationships with students and encourage each child to work to his or her maximum ability. 
At PHHS, we believe that each student should have a positive high school experience.  A variety of clubs, organizations, and teams exist to allow every student to get involved and find their unique interest and talent.  PHHS offers award-winning musical programs, outstanding athletic teams, student centered clubs, entertaining drama, and successful academic groups that provide students with enriched learning experiences and the opportunity to develop lasting friendships. 
We are very fortunate to have a great school with outstanding students and teachers which is located in a supportive community.  Our focus is to work collaboratively so that each student is prepared for his or her future. 
On behalf of the faculty and staff, I wish each of you an exciting and productive school year. 
 Go Roosters and Chicks!
