School Information

In 1996, the Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose School District responded to parent, student, community and educators' concerns that the traditional high school was not meeting the needs of a significant number of its students by forming a committee to study alternatives. Research and planning was conducted for two years before Phoenix Learning Center (PLC) opened its doors in September 1998.

Our Mission:
To empower students to be responsible, productive, confident members of their community.
