The Amherst Regional High School Parent/Guardian Organization (ARHS PGO) welcomes you to the 2019-2020 Academic Year. We are a volunteer group of parents and guardians, and invite you to join us! The mission of the ARHS PGO is to:

  • promote communication and understanding among families, staff and the Amherst area community; 
  • foster a spirit of collaboration by providing a forum for participation and the exchange of information and ideas; and 
  • provide financial assistance where needed to enrich all students’ academic and overall experience

Evening Coffees with Principal Gene Jones and Others

The ARHS PGO regularly invites the principal and other guest speakers to present on a wide variety of relevant topics. Moderated Q&As are scheduled as part of these sessions. Join us and stay connected!
