I love Pearl River Highschool. The teachers are not only very kind and hardworking, but they actually care whether or not a student is learning or picking up on material that they are trying to teach. Along with that the administration cares about keeping the students safe and content here. They take bullying very seriously and treat it with much force. They don’t let anything go and make sure the life at Pearl River Highschool is the best that it can be.

I was a gifted student through high school so always had hard classes. Most of the teachers there really card about the success of their student so I always had someone to help me out. The administration is annoying, they are jus doing their jobs. However, I do feel that some of the dresscode regulations are unnecessary. The school is a good environment becuse everybody knows everybody so cliques are rare and everyone has alot of school spirit. Friday nght football games are the best.
Pearl River High School definitely has small town pride. We may not be the biggest school, but we have the most pride. The school here is treated like a community. We all root for one another in sports events and always show up to support. The teachers are very helpful when it comes to class work or homework. We respect one another here and that is extremely important to me. The administration of Pearl River provides opportunities for students like me to succeed in school.
