Thank you for visiting Phoenix High School! This website is brand new so the information you are used to seeing will be in a different place. Let us know if you need help finding something.
We look forward to greeting you when the 2017–2018 school year begins Tuesday, Aug. 8. High school supplies vary according to the course taken. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Cap & Gown: Jostens will be here on April 18th selling Caps and Gowns for $40.00. You will wear your cap and gown for the Senior picture. Caps and gowns are sold cash and carry.
Senior Pictures: Jay Dyer will be taking Senior Pictures. The charge for a package of (2) 5x7's and (4) wallets is $20.00. All pictures must be prepaid and students may pay for pictures on picture day. Checks should be made payable to Jay Dyer Photography. The school will not handle any mony for the pictures. This is the picture that will be published in the Daily Citizen News so every Senior will need to have their picture made whether you are purchasing a package or not. This picture is of no cost to the student.
Order forms for pictures can be picked up in the front office after Spring Break on April 9th.
More than 250 elementary students from Whitfield County Schools will gather to perform for the public on Friday, March 23. The annual Elementary Honors Chorus program will be hosted at Southeast High School. Admission is free and the show begins at 6:30 p.m.
We encourage all parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey, which is available in English or Spanish from Wednesday, Nov. 1 until Friday, March 29. The survey is modeled after the student survey and contains only 24 questions. It should only require five to 10 minutes for parents to complete the survey using a computer, smartphone, or tablet. Families without internet access should contact their school about completing the Georgia Parent Survey at the school.
Robots! Rockets! Middle school students get another chance this summer to learn about these things and much more. The 2018 Design, Engineering, & Manufacturing (DEM) Middle School Summer Camp is returning during the week of June 4–8. Applications for the free camp will be accepted until April 30 from any students in the community who will be enrolled in grades 6–8 this fall.
The Whitfield County School System is joining in a statewide celebration this week to salute the efforts of local school board members.

Whitfield County Schools will accept out-of-zone requests for high school students for the 2018–19 school term beginning on Monday, March 5, through Friday, March 9. Students who are currently enrolled in Whitfield County Schools and wish to apply to attend a high school other than the one for which they are zoned for next school term should submit a completed application no later than 3:30 p.m., Friday, March 9.
This has been a very stressful week in our schools and community. The aftermath of the shootings in Florida along with the false rumors and fallacious threats spreading on social media, plus the horrific incident that occurred at Dalton High School on Wednesday, has created a stressful environment in which to teach and to learn. We hope this will let you know what steps we are taking to keep your children safe and secure in all of our schools.
The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive assessment system spanning grades 3 through high school. Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students in grades 3 through 8 will take End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics, while grades 5 and 8 students will also take the EOG Science and Social Studies assessments. High school students will take End-of-Course (EOC) assessments for each of the ten courses in which they are enrolled, as designated by the State Board of Education.
