I really liked that most teachers were about getting you ready for college. They were mostly all understanding. I felt like the way they treated us got me sort of a pre-college feeling. There isn't hardly anything I would change about my school in all honesty but if there had to be one thing, it would be to have more things to participate in. School activities where we can all come together as a whole. I felt like the teachers and the faculty were really nice and kept up with you and your work. I truly believe they have done anything in their hands to see us succeed.

I absolutely love this school out of all the schools I have been to. The teachers are excellent in the way that they teach. If I could be in school again I would definitely go to Pearl high school again at any time possible. The administration is absolutely phenomenal. They take their job extremely serious no matter what a student does. In addition, the teachers are very caring and will go the extra mile for any of their students.
I think that PHS is an amazing school and I feel blessed to have had the chance to attend this school district my entire life. Pearl has the greatest teachers, administrators and community. The support each of us receive is unlike any other. The education I have received at Pearl High School is top-notch and I feel very confident that I will excel in the future.
