Welcome to the principal’s page for Premier High School. I am the principal, Mrs. Petersen. I possess a Master’s Degree in Education Administration and an Arizona Principal’s License for grades K-12. I have been in education for over 21 years, of which I have been an administrator at Premier High School for the last seven.
Our theme for the year is “Be the Change You Want to See in the World!” This is a reminder that our students’ personal actions have a tremendous impact on society as a whole. Students are a precious resource and I have the honor of playing a part in preparing them for the future. I am especially proud of our positive academic performance as a school and am looking forward to another outstanding year!
We are continuing our breakfast and lunch program this year with the addition of a new salad bar. This enables our students to have nutritious meals available to them at no cost and helps them to be more focused during learning time.
I am also very excited about our new elective offerings this year. Students will be able to choose from classes, such as: art, music, film history, STEM, accounting, cosmetology and home economics.
Our sports program has some additions as well. We will be offering flag football, volleyball, basketball and soccer. Research shows that when students are involved in extracurricular activities, it enhances their school experience both socially and academically.
Please feel free to stop by the school to say hello or let me know if you have suggestions. I look forward to working with you in partnership for an excellent year!
