School Structure

The International High School @ Prospect Heights (IHS@PH) focuses on providing recent immigrant students with an intensive language development curriculum throughout the entire school day. Students at IHS@PH are placed into teams where they work closely with teachers and other students to maximize their academic and language learning. At the end of each semester students present a portfolio showcasing academic work they have learned in each of their classes. Students are also assigned an advisor who oversees their development throughout their high school career. The advisor serves as an advocate and mentor to the student.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent teacher conferences take place two times a year. Parents and guardians are expected to come and pick up report cards from and have a meeting with the student's advisors. Translation and interpretation services are provided.


The Parent-Teacher Association meets once a month on Wednesday evening, at 6 PM.

After School Opportunities

The International High School @ Prospect Heights offers several after school activities for students. Most clubs meet after school for one to one and a half hours. Most clubs meet once a week, but in some cases twice a week. After school activities include: Peer Tutoring Homework Help, Drama Club, Chinese Club, French Class, SAT Prep, Haitian Club and Student Government. All students are welcome to join these after school activities. Schedules of activities along with dates and times will be posted in room 419A.
