Welcome to Paradise Valley High


Welcome and welcome back! We are very much looking forward to seeing you in person on August 5th. We are excited for the new school year, and to continue the traditions that make PVHS "the place to be."

Please join us as we continue to embrace our culture of PRIDE (Prepare, Respect, Initiate, Do, Excel). We will continue to emphasize prompt attendance, ID compliance, dress code compliance, and academic commitment. Regular and timely attendance is a major contributing factor to academic success, and wearing your ID contributes to our school safety. Please be here on time, ready to learn. Thank you in advance, and remember, it’s always a great day to be a Trojan!

Whether you are a returning Trojan, or a new student starting at PVHS, we wish you all the best as you start a new school year! The 2024-25 school year begins on Monday, August 5th. All students will report to a designated area to pick up their official schedule between 7:00 and 7:25 a.m. on the first day of school.

  • Seniors: Cafeteria, Upper Level
  • Juniors: Cafeteria, Lower Level
  • Sophomores: Media Center
  • Freshmen: Auditorium Lobby

Be sure to check your email for communication from the school regarding back-to-school information and events.


All students (including 9th graders) are invited to come by the main gym on July 31st to pay fees, get P.E. uniforms, learn about sports and clubs, check out a chromebook (9th graders and new students) and walk the campus from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. or 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


All incoming freshmen are invited to PRIDE Camp on Friday, August 2nd from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This is a free event and one you do not want to miss. This is a critical step to being Prepared for the start of the year. Freshman parents are also invited to attend a session with administration and our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. in the auditorium. This is a great way to get involved, meet other parents, and get your questions answered by veteran PVHS parents.

Traffic Information

Traffic on the first few days is usually a challenge, so it is a good idea to arrive early in order to avoid traffic congestion. The West Lot is the ONLY lot designated for student pick-up and drop-off, as well as student parking. It is a busy area at arrival and dismissal time. Students are encouraged to ride the bus, if they are eligible. Please do not drop off in adjacent businesses.

Student Computers

The Paradise Valley School District loans a take-home device to students in grades 7-12. There is no fee for the use of the device, but families may carry full liability for the device (Chromebook) in the same way they do for other damaged or lost school property, such as textbooks. There is an optional protection plan which may be purchased annually and provides for reduced repair and replacement costs. Purchase the protection plan via the school bookstore. Students and parents must also sign a Device User Agreement.

Athletics Information

The Athletics office number is (602) 449-7023.

Students interested in participating in sports must complete a sports packet. Check the PVHS website for more information or see our Athletic Director, Brock Heykoop, or our Athletic Assistant, Karen Barnett, with any questions.
