What is Phoenix High School?

Philosophy and Mission Statement

  • Phoenix High School is part of the Gwinnett County Public School System.
  • Classes meet fours days per week with most Fridays off (some Fridays required).
  • Phoenix offers an “open campus” option for students that are pursuing completion of their high school diploma.
  • All students that attend Phoenix must be in good standing with their school (i.e., not serving a suspension from another school), be at least 16 years old and have attended high school for one year.
  • Students are given adult privileges; therefore, students are expected to act as such (i.e., off-campus lunch option, no more than three absences permitted per class, three tardies equals one absence).
  • Block classes (125 minutes each) allow students to earn academic credit in less time than in the traditional high school setting.
  • A flexible class schedule (school is open 8 AM to 8 PM) allows students to balance attending school with work, family care, etc.
  • Students must live in Gwinnett County and have their own transportation to and from Phoenix.
  • Phoenix has a four minimester academic calendar (August - October, October - December, January - March and March - May).
  • Students may enroll at Phoenix as a full-time student (free of charge for three classes) or as a 7th period student ($210.00 per class).
  • Credit recovery courses are available for some classes if a student has failed a course with at least a 60.
  • Phoenix does not offer extracurricular clubs or activities so that students can completely focus on academics.
  • Most classes have a low student teacher ratio.
  • On-site day care available for parents attending classes with children (guidelines apply).
