About PHS

This is a very exciting time to be a part of Putnam High School. As you may have heard we have finished the process of renovating our school and updating our facilities. As parents / guardians, this means your children will have more opportunities to use the brand new facilities (such as a Black Box Theater and a brand new gymnasium) now that they are finished.

These new facilities will also support our energetic and motivated staff members who have worked hard over the past five years to implement a new comprehensive curriculum. Some of you might be asking "What is a comprehensive curriculum?" In simple terms - we at PHS believe in offering courses and opportunities both within core classes (English, Science, math, History) and the Arts (World Language, Art, Music, Business, Technology, etc.). At PHS our students will have the opportunity to work with their guidance counselor to build a schedule that meets both their graduation requirements and their interests.

In addition to a comprehensive curriculum, Putnam High School also offers a variety of activities, clubs, and athletics for our students. These sports and clubs help foster the core values we "Clippers" believe in, which are: Respect, Responsibility, Community, and Integrity.

As your children become a member of our Clipper Nation please feel free to call the school if you have any questions about anything.
