    Welcome in various languages

    WELCOME to Cat Country!

    To those transferring to PJHS from schools other than Daniel Pratt or Prattville Intermediate, we welcome you!!!  I'm sure you have questions in anticipation to moving to a new area.  We invite you to view the Virtual Welcome below to get to know us a little better and to help navigate the website to learn specific information.  Due to Covid-19, we were unable to host our Preview Days as originally scheduled.  We hope to be able to reschedule them for July....stay tuned.  We cannot wait to meet you!

    Required paperwork is included below.  Please click on the appropriate grade level for your student.  There are some additional documents to be included.  As we are only taking information remotely at this time, you may email a completed packet (please do not send individual parts at different times to ensure all your documentation stays together due to the volume of requests during this time) to marianne.gamper@acboe.net. 

    If you have questions, you may call us between 8am-noon at 334-365-6697, option 0.

    Placement Test Graphic

    Placement tests for Advanced Classes

    A NEW DATE HAS BEEN ADDED:  Thurs, Aug 13th.

    PJHS offers Placement Tests in each core class (English, Mathematics, Science, & History) to qualify for advanced classes.  Students from Daniel Pratt / Prattville Intermediate School do NOT need to take placement tests as this is for students moving into Autauga County Schools.  

    Students may take the placement test for any or all of the core classes.  These tests are ONLY for those students who wish to be considered for advanced classes.  Tests typically take approximately one hour per test.  However, students are NOT timed.  We encourage the students to bring a snack and to have a way to call home when they have completed the testing.

    Due to COVID-19 constraints, students will need to sign up below for a session as we have a limited number of students that can participate each session.  If you have questions, please contact the grade level counselor.  Please sign up for only ONE session below to ensure all students who wish to participate have a slot. Face coverings are encouraged.

    Seventh Grade:  Yolanda.thompkins@acboe.net
    Eighth Grade:  Melinda.kiser@acboe.net

    PJHS Preview Days

    PREVIEW DAYS

    TWO NEW DATES HAVE BEEN ADDED:  Wed, Aug 5th & Thurs, Aug 13th.

    Since we were unable to provide school tours in the spring, PJHS has limited opportunities for "Preview Days".  These sessions are designed for the following:
     *Those moving into the area, including our military friends
     *Those from local / private schools interested in attending PJHS
     *Those from DPES / PI who are unfamiliar with PJHS.

    We will have a short introduction session, a tour of the school, and a Q/A time with an administrator.  Students will be introduced to several staff members and will receive information about the academic program and extra curricular activities.  The session will last approximately 75 minutes.

    Please sign up for only one spot (student name) for the times listed below.  ONE person per student may attend.  Due to Covid-19 guidelines, we have limited space for each session and want to accommodate as many students / families as possible.  We encourage face coverings during this visit.

    Paint a PJHS Ceiling Tile 

    PJHS is offering the opportunity to paint ceiling tiles so students, community members, and businesses can make their mark and be a part of the Tradition of Excellence that is such an integral part of the Cat Legacy.  We encourage our stakeholders to paint a ceiling tile to be installed before school resumes.  These tiles will be placed in the front lobby down to the Student Center.  

    We encourage our stakeholders to share their creativity to honor the TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE of PJHS over the past 50+ years or to share a positive encouragement for our students.  Businesses may also advertise on tiles.  

    Artwork tiles are $50
    Business advertisement tiles are $100
    All tiles are 2 ft x 4 ft.
    PJHS accepts cash or checks.  Businesses may receive a receipt for tax purposes.

    Tiles must be of a positive nature - no negativity, profanity, controversy, politics, etc.  Advertisements must be consistent with the mission of PJHS.  While we respect individuality, PJHS does reserve the right not to display a tile (with a refund of money).

    Donations from these tiles will be used for student technology (i.e., Chromebooks), STEM supplies (i.e., 3-D printers and supplies), and positive messaging throughout the school (i.e., banners, bathroom stall covers, etc).

    Please complete the form below.  Once approved, tiles can be picked up Mon-Thur from 8:00 am-noon. 
    Please email Mrs. Stockman if you have additional questions.
