PHS Advisory Council
Local School Councils (LSC) were established as a result of Georgia's A+ Education Reform Act of 2000. This legislation required that all schools in Georgia establish Local Councils by October 1, 2003. The purpose of the LSC is to bring communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to solve difficult educational problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and administrators, and bring parents into the school-based decision-making process.

Pursuing Higher Standards
The Mission of Pickens High School
“Help all students realize their potential by providing the best educational situation possible”.
Student learning is the primary goal of the school
Students’ learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions affecting the school.
Parent, students, educators, school board and councils, and the entire community are responsible for implementing and achieving the school’s goals.
Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs and may require special services or resources.
A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.
A student’s self-esteem is enhanced through developing and sharing mutual respect among students and staff.
Challenging expectations and a supportive environment increase individual student performance.
Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process.
All students can learn, achieve, and succeed when provided developmentally appropriate learning activities.
Cultural diversity increases student understanding of different people and cultures.
