Pearl River High School Reviews

82 reviews
All Categories
I am a Senior at Pearl River High School; a member of the graduating class of 2018. My five years at PRHS have been good. For the most part, I enjoyed my high school experience. The atmosphere at PRHS is good for learning. Almost everyone makes a good effort, and has aspirations beyond high school, which creates a positive culture. Students have a lot of school spirit, and get excited to attend sports games. While there are a few strong teachers, unfortunately there are many teachers that will almost definitely bring down your GPA and won't provide much assistance. The administration is probably the largest negative about the school. The administration has a poor reputation for being overly strict. The school's facilities are nothing special, but the sports teams still do well enough. My overall high school experience at PRHS was good.

While the academics were excellent, there was little funding for the Arts and little support for the students. The school office workers (principle, counselors, etc) didn't care for any reason behind any disturbances, such as attendance, all they cared was about how everything looked on paper. So very little care for the mental health of students.
Most of the teachers care and teach the content in a quick and informative manner. The resources and class options (especially for AP classes) are limited and inhibit some educational exploration. School spirit is lacking among students, and a general apathy toward extracirriculars barring sports looms.
