There are some amazing teachers at PH that have really made high school a better experience. They made difficult courses tolerable and better to understand. These teachers helped me not only with academics, but they were there in times of need and support. Many can say the same about how supportive the Patrick Henry teachers are for their students. The band program at PH is amazing! We have 3 levels of band classes, jazz band, and the famous marching patriots. Band really brings people together like a family. We work hard and spread smiles everywhere we go. PH is always popping with school spirit with pep rallies, school plays, concerts, and spirit days. I have two years left at PH, but I already know it will be good.

Patrick Henry High School is unique in that it does have a very diverse student body. I have heard many stories from both of my two girls who have attended there and other students that are friends of my daughters that the food served in the cafeteria needs to be improved. I am proud to say though that the City of Roanoke does provide free lunch to all Roanoke City students, which is an excellent benefit to students who are in low income families. My main complaint about the school is the fact that the bathroom facilities are extremely poor and lack proper soap and private stalls that lock correctly for privacy. This issue has been unresolved since my oldest daughter attended this high school and graduated in 2012. As far as the education of my children by this school, I feel that most teachers would definitely get an A++ for their contribution to the education of my children.
Patrick Henry has provided me with the opportunity to grow as a learner, working member of society, community member, and friend. The school spirit that is shown throughout the school year brings about a sense of community, or as our school calls it, “PHamily”. The idea of coming together with those that we spend most of our time with is a concept that encourages students and faculty to continue to come to school eager to learn and build relationships. Additionally, I have always admired the school’s ability to react to adversity and change quickly and with grace. When tragedy hits our small community, the faculty creates a comfortable and safe environment for students to ease back into routine after things such as students passing away suddenly and classmates being diagnosed with cancer.
