I enjoyed all fours years. Greatest teachers ever and very hard working. The jrotc program is off the charts amazing and very organized
lunches vary depending on students class schedule. if you are in the last lunch there is not enough food for all students.
The school system really cares about the students and their families. The school system has a system to achieve everything in the best interest of the students.
Prince George County schools are very good overall. They make all the students feel like family and the schools throughout the county. This county makes all the sports feel connected somehow and the students always know people very closely to the other sport team members. I would love all the schools to feel this way no matter what because there is a true connection between all the students. Everyone at the schools are always involved with clubs, activities, and sports.
I would like the administration to be more open and listen to the students more. I like the sports aspect of Prince George High School, the staff really care about the athletes.
I went to Prince George High School from my sophomore year to senior year. I enjoyed the people I encountered, many of the teachers were very helpful, and I loved the home feeling it gave. Though, the administration, at the time, could be improved. I feel as if a lot of the faculty was not connected with the students at school. Also, the school is very run down and needs some updates. Overall, my experience was a little above average.
The teachers and faculty are great. The school needs more resources but they do pretty good with what they have.
The only thing I like about Prince George County Schools was the Arts departments. The overall enthusiasm and effort put into the plays, choirs, and arts was above average. I would love to see more funding go towards these art departments rather than sports so they can crate to their fullest extent.
I enjoyed the friendly environment, the support from the faculty and staff, all of the extracurricular activities, and just the overall experience of being a student there.
I have been to many schools in my life, and this was just another one. There’s nothing really special about this school. It’s not horrible, it’s not that good either. Their options for AP classes for 10th graders is very limited, and the Honors Society programs requirements are outdated. They also serve the same junk everyday (pizza and fries), and they count fruit juice (apple juice), as a replacement for fruit. The music/arts aspect of this school is very good.
I would like to see Prince George County Schools prepare the students better for college. The school system should not only focus on the IB students or the ones that are taking college courses, but they should also prepare the students that are not as advanced so they can still have a chance to have a fulfilling career when they graduate high school.
The anti-bullying environment is well established at Prince George. However, as far as policy goes, this is the only thing that does the job. Prince George has weak teachers for AP classes and offers only a small amount of AP classes. The same can also be said for the duel enrollment classes, of which there are also a few amount of.
Eh, there were always fights and everybody said it didn't do a good job helping prepare for college.
My experience at Prince George High School was average it was nothing that made the school amazing or great. The staff was nice, but they did not take out the time to personally help out the students as much as they could. The teachers move at a fast pace when they teach they do not really try to assist the students as much as they could. There could have been more involved with making sure the students interact. It is hard to fit in if you are not from Prince George or if you do not have a certain background. It is a diverse school but everybody is not treated the same. I know personally, my experience with my guidance counselor was not how I would have liked it to be. I felt as though when it came to African American students she was not encouraging enough and she was not helpful with outside sources as far as helping students find a plan.
This place is very, very selfish and culturally insensitive. The lack of diversity has created an atmosphere of tension between different cultural/ethnic groups. The treatment of minorities in said area and said high school has had many issues throughout its history. The saddest thing is the school is near a military base which is culturally diverse. Yet it seem as if it's stuck in the past and refuses to move on.
I liked the school because of the teachers. Some teachers were subpar, but there were a few teachers that mean the world to me. I am a senior at Prince George high school but I am a full time student at Richard bland. I go back somewhat often to see the teachers that mean the most to me.
Prince George County Public Schools provided me with a good foundation, but it does not compare to some of the districts in surrounding counties. I assume Prince George does not receive as much funding as maybe some of the other counties, so they cannot provide as many resources or programs for the students. I did enjoy my time at Prince George and just suggest to others that you research all of your educational options for classes and programs before you enter high school and take advantage of the programs that will help you to advance in your education because applying to colleges can be very competitive. Have your parents attend your meetings at the end of the year for scheduling with your guidance counselor so everyone can be on the same page. If my parents weren't involved in that process, I would not be where I am today.
Very good school system, the teacher and staff are very helpful and focused on the students. The administration is very willing and helpful if problems arise. Recently have had upgrades in with the technology. I would like to see more attentiondedicated to the arts. Especially the theater department, the theater department is a great way for kids to express interest and get involved in school. Prince George would benefit from more time and money being devoted to the arts.
The halls were always crowded and the administration didn't care about students. There was never funding for anything and you were lucky if you didn't get sick from the "food" they served for lunch. There were fights almost every week. We were given tardies for stupid reasons. A teacher threatened to fail me for being in the hospital for 2 weeks and the administration said it was okay because I should have video chatted someone from the class to understand when I didn't know anyone in the class.
Most faculty has been supportive but there are fundamental issues such as mold and a lack of funding to programs who continue to prove their worth. Good school otherwise.
