Patrick Henry High School Staff, Students and Parents agree that this Compact outlines how we will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which we will build and develop a partnership that will help our students achieve the State’s student academic achievement standards. 

School Responsibilities: We as Staff will support our students’ learning in the following ways:

  • Provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables our students to meet the State’s student academic achievement standards
  • Hold Parent and Teacher conferences during which this Compact will be discussed as it relates to the individual child’s achievements
  • Provide parents with frequent reports on their children’s progress, and the overall progress of Patrick Henry
  • Provide parents reasonable access to staff, opportunities to volunteer, participate in their child’s class, and to observe classroom activities

  • Make sure that my child attends class at least 95% of the time, is on time, and homework is completed

  • Help out at school whenever possible by attending Parent and Teacher conferences and participating in decisions relating to my children’s education
  • Encourage my child to participate in school sports, clubs, and activities

  • Serve as much as possible on Patrick Henry parent organizations including Booster Club, Site Council, Principal/Parent Luncheons, and District-wide groups
