"12 is 12"
Phoenix High School sets a clear academic expectation for its students, urging them to acquire a minimum of 12 credits each grading period. These credits are divided into six core and six recovery credits, forming a pivotal benchmark for maintaining eligibility at the school. Falling short of this credit requirement at the conclusion of any grading period can pose a significant risk to a student's continued enrollment at Phoenix. In such cases, students may face the prospect of returning to their original home school or even being referred to Adult Education as an alternative path.
