If you missed this opportunity, please go to the counseling department to receive your scores, then watch this quick, 2-minute video to help you understand your results. If you have further questions, please contact your school counselor; they are here to help!

The following students had their work juried into the exhibit:
Additionally, two of the five Juror’s Choice Awards– the highest honor given– went to Liliana Briem and Rebekah Campbell.
Congratulations to PHS seniors Lillian Bartholomew & Melissa Larson, who have been named as candidates in the 2017 United States Presidential Scholars Program.
This program was established in 1964 to recognize some of our nation’s most distinguished graduating seniors for their accomplishments in many areas: academic success, leadership, and service to school and community. In 1979, it was expanded to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional scholarship and talent in the visual, creative, and performing arts. In 2015, the program was expanded once again to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical fields.
Each spring, the Commission on Presidential Scholars names up to 161 distinguished graduating high school seniors as U.S. Presidential Scholars. Being selected as a U.S. Presidential Scholar is one of the highest honors our nation’s high school students may receive.
The students selected as 2017 U.S. Presidential Scholars will receive the Presidential Scholars Medallion at a ceremony sponsored by the White House in Washington, DC (www.ed.gov/psp).
Best wishes, Lillian and Melissa, as you move forward in the selection process!
