Principal's Message

PHS Principal’s Message


Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! We are thrilled to welcome back all of our returning students and eager to welcome new students.


Personally, I am grateful to continue the work with you as your Principal. Over the past year, I have had a chance to meet many members of the PHS community.  We have achieved some pretty amazing things together! I look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with all of you in the upcoming year and look forward to continuing to build on our successes. 


PRIDE High School is LISD's Academic High School of Choice. PHS focuses on individualized learning through online curriculum delivered at a goal-driven pace blended with student-centered instruction. We exist to serve students with many different stories who, for one reason or another, may not have found success in a more traditional setting.  PHS is the ideal choice for students who wish to accelerate their learning because they are seeking to graduate early, those who are seeking to recover credits, or students who are simply seeking a smaller high school community. It is our mission to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to support students to meet their educational goals!


If you ever have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hello, please know that I am available and accessible. I invite you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see the wonderful things happening every day at PHS!
