I attended Patrick Henry High School in Roanoke City, Virginia for my junior and senior years of high school (Fall 2015-Summer 2017). Approximately 2300 students were enrolled in the school at the time. There are numerous opportunities to participate in sports, orchestra, marching band, academic clubs, and more. There is never a dull moment at Patrick Henry!

I've been going to this school for 11 years and the system here is great! The Teachers, administration, and staff here take their time to make sure every student has the opportunity to make it in life. Also, they help every student on their level so they can pass and walk across that stage on their graduation day and I'm a graduating senior and I wouldn't have made it this far without the help they provided me!
The food service is terrible! They switched to a outsourced vendor and it hasn't been good. The service is slow and there have been days that my daughter wasn't able to eat because of the long lines!
