Page High School mostly consists of students from Page Middle and anyone who moves into the school zone. It is in the middle of nowhere, which can make for a long transit for some. Most teachers and classes for AP/honors students are very challenging and fun, but some classes are lacking. The administration is very open to forming new clubs, so that is a plus! The sports teams are neither especially good or bad. There is a lot of emphasis on the ACT to get you ready for college. In addition, starting in the 2017 to 2018 school year the duel enrollment program will be with Middle Tennessee State University, which means you'll have lots of chances to earn college credit! School sponsored events can be underwhelming, and many do not attend. Overall, this school is fairly good but could use some more parent involvement, and work in their out of school activities.

I feel like this school was pretty decent overall, but I feel that the administration neglects their teachers way too much. I have seen a lot of garbage thrown at teachers from all administration (except Randy Hatley, who would make an amazing principal if you ask me). The administration is supposed to support their staff, but time and time again I see them attacked because they have a student who’s unwilling to care. Through some twisted system, it makes the teachers look bad when a student is failing because, somehow, all students are faultless. I know for a fact we have some wonderful (and underpaid) teachers who are severely discouraged by their bosses, not the students. You’d expect it to be the other way around. I would never want to put up with the working conditions I see my friends' mothers in. Shouldn't the teachers be given a reason to work with such low pay? I respect them all the more for that, but I would never want to be in their place working at Page High.
Good academics, but as far as the organization with events, registration, and orientation- it's poor. There also isn't a lot of integrity from the administrative staff, they have been known to promise students one thing and then never come through with it. For example, for senior orientation, all the students were promised assigned parking spaces so you didn't have to show up to orientation hours early in hopes of getting a good parking spot. What actually happened; it was first come first serve. Not exactly good news after arriving 2 hours after orientation had begun. Also, whenever you get your schedule there is a likely chance that it is wrong. You have to fill out forms multiple times until they finally get things right. Dealing with the administration at this school is frustrating, but bearable. At least the staff is usually friendly.
