Pearl River Central High School Reviews
I appreciate that the Pearl River Central High School has a great variety of classes to choose from that helps students with getting into colleges. There are also career and technical programs that offers important information and hands on learning about different occupations. Finally, the teachers are friendly, and they do a fine job of teaching the students when they are in need of help. The only thing I would change is adding more AP classes that could help even more students get into college.
Pearl River Central High School provides a good level of academics to students who attend. The thing I like the most about Pearl River Central High School is when you need help, the teachers are willing to help whether before, during, or after class. Pearl River Central High School is having construction done to improve the safety of the buildings and to provide for study room for the students. One thing I would like to be changed about this school is the communication with the dress code. I believe there should be a limit to dress code, but not an excessive amount of limits. I think the students should be allowed to wear warmer clothes such as sweatpants during the winter, instead of getting a dress code slip when worn. Overall, Pearl River Central High School has provided me with good opportunities, knowledge needed to succeed, and enough safety to get through high school.
At Pearl River Central High School, our school is very friendly and has a great staff. Many of teachers are very nice and understanding. We have a great staff. We all respect each others diversities. We have big love for our sports team! Friday nights in the fall are consisted of blue devil football games. We are surrounded a outstanding community that always support our school in lots of different ways.
