High school and the diploma are no longer an end point. No moving from one box to the next. Our high school intends to be a process of learning where students create individual pathways and move along them in directions and at rates related to their needs, interests, and potentials.
At Phoenix Charter School we are preparing students to be travelers, not arrivers, and with a process so integrated it is difficult to tell where one education component leaves off and the other begins.
At Phoenix we believe that all students are capable of educational success. We aim to provide multiple avenues for student our students as we understand that not every student learns in the same way.
Is Phoenix Charter School easier than other high schools?
No, Phoenix students are required to complete the same state testing and have the same graduation requirements as other public high schools in Oregon. Phoenix is designed to meet the needs of students through a hands-on learning approach so the coursework is often different than traditional high school environments.
Are Phoenix Charter School teachers highly qualified?
Yes, Phoenix has highly qualified teachers. All teachers at Phoenix are licensed and registered with the Oregon Teacher Standards & Practices Commission (TSPC).
“Working at Phoenix has been a blessing for me, I get to explore education—a thing I love so much—with some really fantastic young adults. It is hard to make it through a day here at Phoenix without being in awe of what our students can do. What they are able to teach me about human perseverance, curiosity, grit and intelligence has no bounds.”
