As the year is winding down, it is with a warm heart that I extend my gratitude for all the amazing achievements and celebrations we have shared together as a Phoenix family. At the top of the list, it is with much admiration and respect that I am proud of the stellar efforts put forth by our faculty, staff and student body. Those efforts earned our school a second National Blue Ribbon Award. We are the only early college high school in Texas to receive that honor. Congratulations to my Phoenix family! It is my hope that everyone has a safe and restful winter break, so that we may return rejuvenated and prepared to tackle another semester together.
