3/28/23: To better prepare for the ACT, students at PHS have been taking part in a school-wide initiative called ACTuesday. Each Tuesday, students complete a mini-ACT covering one, or multiple, sections found on the test. The intention of these shortened exams is to increase confidence in particular subjects, expose students to different types of ACT style questions, and create a healthy sense of time and urgency so that students can feel more comfortable on the big test day! Students receive immediate results when they submit and answers/explanations are provided for each question asked.
