Welcome Message from the Principal

Dear Families,
Christine Douglas
My name is Christine Douglas and I am the Principal of PHA’s Middle and High School & Collegiate Institute. I have been at PHA my entire career, first as a Spanish teacher, then as an Assistant Principal, and now in my 8th year as Principal. I have dedicated my career to this community because of our continued commitment to relationship building, rigorous academics, restorative practices and social emotional learning.
Our academic program at the Middle School focuses on engaging students in exciting work. From programming robots in Computer Science, to reading complex, relevant books in English, to learning how to talk through complex thinking in Math, and creating proposals for alternative energy sources in Science, our students complete meaningful, relevant, and rigorous tasks. Our dedicated and experienced faculty work tirelessly to provide the supports necessary for every student to be successful.
While we do not yet know exactly what our school structure will look like in the fall, my dedicated and experienced staff and I are preparing for an exciting, enriching, and challenging learning experience for our students. We are committed to keeping you abreast of plans for the upcoming school year as we receive additional guidelines from the Commissioner of Education.
I very much look forward to meeting you and getting to know your student.
Christine Douglas
Middle and High School & Collegiate Institute Principal
