The VISION of PHUHS is to provide a learning environment that results in a graduation rate of 100% each year.

The MISSION of PHUHS is to educate all students by using effective systems that promote lifelong learning.


         Suggestions for chemistry student success:

  • Use kwanga.net to access course information on a regular basis.
  • Check email each weekend for update, or check the “weekly update” page on kwanga.net.
  • Spend 10 minutes per night reviewing any new material or reviewing old material with no distractions.
  • Print online “teacher notes” in advance, and take “student notes” in class.
  • Practice assignments assigned or begun in class should be finished at home so students can check them with the answer key in a timely manner.  Do not fall behind.
  • Be an active participant in class.  Ask questions when needed.  If you don't know what to ask, describe the concepts giving you trouble.
  • Work math problems to study for a math-based test.  Redo the chapter practices and problems in the notes, and check your work against the correct answers.
  • Go over the test review and oral “test hints” given during the notes.  Do not wait until the night before to study.  Study alone first with no phone or other distractions before you study in a group (if you choose to study in a group).
  • Access “chem web links” page on kwanga.net for interactive tutorials, videos, and worksheets.
  • Complete all optional assignments.  
  • Correct all assignments (“buyback”) to get some points back.
  • Keep binders in order at all times.
  • Make appointment to come in (6:30-7:00 a.m.) or (1:35 – 2:20 p.m.) for help.
  • After school tutoring on campus: M/W, 2:30-4:30 p.m. in room 19-103. Students should bring specific notes and/or assignments.
