AP Testing - May 3 - 25
Please review What Students Should Bring to the Exam Room and What Students Should Not Bring to the Exam Room and the Calculator Policy (please disregard if your exam does not call for a calculator).
Please come prepared and be on time. Be sure you bring a photo ID. You will need to have a face covering that covers both your nose and mouth. (a Covid-19 partition will be supplied upon request). Cellphones are not permitted in the exam rooms. The doors will close at 7:55 a.m. for the morning exams and 11:55 a.m. for the afternoon exams. You will not be admitted after that time.
The Nutrition Center will be open at 7:30 a.m. for students taking morning exams and 11:30 a.m. for students taking afternoon exams.
We take attendance in the exams only. If you are not planning to attend classes prior to or after your exam, your parent will need to call the attendance office to excuse those absences. The same rules apply to those taking the AP tests digitally.
Graduation and Senior Event Information
Grad Night 2021
"Down the Rabbit Hole"
Thursday, June 17 from 5:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Due to continuing Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to produce our traditional on-campus Grad Night event. However, we are thrilled to announce that we have secured a fantastic alternative to give our seniors the safe, sober graduation celebration they deserve!
We have the entire Boomers facility reserved for our private Grad Night event for Poway High Seniors ONLY! Your ticket and park entry will include: your Grad Night T-shirt and UNLIMITED Mini Golf, Bumper Boats, Batting Cages, Go Carts, and Arcade games. We will also have many of our traditional grad night activities with a DJ, photo booth, casino games, caricatures, crazy hair, tattoos, prizes, food, and more.
Tickets are $100 if purchased through May 28, and $125 if purchased from May 29 - June 4. Tickets are limited and will not be sold at the door. You can purchase them online (a service charge will apply), or return your ticket order form and waiver with payment by cash or check to the PHS front office. If payment is made online, you must still turn in a signed waiver to PHS front office or mail to PHS PTSA, 15500 Espola Road, Poway, CA 92064.
PUSD Career Technical Ed Expo Online
The CTE Expo is always a "can't miss" event, and we think you'll enjoy the virtual version even more. By registering early, you'll have access to preview sessions and learn about pathway offerings. (If you've never attended an in-person CTE Expo, check out this video created by PUSD interns. Register here!
Graduation Singer Video Auditions
Attention all graduating seniors, auditions are being held for graduation solos (or duets/trios) via video submission.
Here are the requirements:
1. All singers must be GRADUATING seniors.
2. Songs may be performed either with live instruments (not including piano - stringed instruments like guitar and ukulele can work), with a karaoke track, or a cappella (no instruments).
3. Songs must have school appropriate lyrics, and a theme appropriate for the milestone.
4. Songs must not exceed 4 minutes.
5. The current plan is to have singers perform live at the event, however, treat the video as a performance just in case.
6. The students in the video must be dressed appropriately for the occasion, and the video content must not have unnecessary distractions.
7. All videos must be submitted to THIS GOOGLE FORM https://forms.gle/PAcF3cvdEdH4h6t87
