My overall experience rate is high because as I experienced it first hand, I could see that the school was constantly trying to expand its reach to the students. The school is a wonderful place to send high school students because administration takes pride in its students and community by encouraging parents and alumni to be as involved as possible. They place importance on attendance and class work before extra curricular activities by making curricular requirements for the students before they can participate in events such as homecoming or sports. The classes are well distributed, so that teachers have an easier time interacting with students one on one.

Pascagoula High is a good school to send your kids too. It has good teachers and friendly staff that will help get students where they need to be. They have a good graduation rate and it only gets higher year after year. They have many extracurricular activities for students to enjoy and express themselves in. I personally didn’t like that we had to wear uniforms and some rules just didn’t appeal to me, but overall good school.
My experience with Pascagoula High School has been good for the most part. We had a great principal, Mr. Herbert, who cared so deeply for the students and the well being of the school. Now we have Dr. Payton, who seems like she couldn't care less about the students. The school feels somewhat like a detention center due to the lack of school spirit and the strictness coming from the principal and one of the vice principals. My three years before this year were great though and I wouldn't trade them for anything.
