Paris High provides academic progress reports at regular checkpoints during the year. These reports are normally distributed to students to take home. Parents may monitor the PHS website for notices of these distributions. For more frequent and convenient access to grades, parents are encouraged to use txConnect , a parental web portal that gives "read-only" Web access to each child's grades and attendance directly from the teacher's gradebook.
Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, Paris High will operate on nine weeks grading periods. To comply with no-pass, no-play regulations, the school has established a series of "UIL Checkpoints" of dates where a student may lose or regain eligibility to participate in extracurricular activities. Please refer to the school calendar of events found on this website for a complete listing of those dates or download our Academic Calendar. Grade reports will be distributed to students the week following each UIL Checkpoint.

Teachers have been asked to maintain accurate and current electronic gradebooks to help parents track their child's progress at any time. txConnect has some very interesting features that can help parents keep on top of their child's grades, attendance, and school activities. A parent can access their child's information from home, work, or any place they have an Internet connection. Absences will update five times daily and grades/assignments will automatically update each night.
Each month Paris High staff recognizes a student who goes above and beyond the norm of student expectations to help make the school a better place for learning. The November winner is sophomore Skyler Bryan. See monthly winners on our Students of the Month page.
