Parking and student automobile usePinnacle High School has limited parking available to students. Only authorized senior and junior students holding a valid parking permit will be allowed to park on campus in a school designated student parking lot. Discipline and attendance will be considered for a student to maintain a parking permit. A student may have a parking permit revoked during the school year if she/he accumulates more than one suspension or any combination of four or more discipline or attendance referrals. Students must follow the parking guidelines contract signed when issued a parking permit. At the end of each school year, students who will be seniors and juniors in the fall are given the opportunity to express their interest in purchasing a parking pass. Student disciplinary records will be reviewed for parking eligibility for the following year. Students who have more than one suspension or a combination of four or more discipline/attendance referrals may not be eligible for a parking permit or lottery participation.
Eligible seniors will be given priority to obtain a parking permit. Any remaining available parking spaces / permits will be issued to eligible junior students chosen at random in a lottery drawing. Parking spaces in the student parking area(s) are available on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be no assigned spaces. All PVUSD high schools assess a parking permit fee of $100 in accordance with District regulations. The parking fee is for any registered automobile or motorcycle. Parking Permit Form

Good neighbor policy/off-campus parkingWe uphold a good neighbor policy with the surrounding community. Students are not to park in the surrounding community during the school day; doing so may impact eligibility for a future Pinnacle parking pass. Students who choose to park in off limits areas such as neighboring side streets or in the driveways of vacated properties may be subject to penalty, boot, and/or tow in accordance with City of Phoenix parking or trespassing laws.
