The teachers strive for the best here! They always pushed me to be on top in school. They also reward students for their hard work in different ways, which is even more motivation. I have noticed many innovations in the school since I graduated. They seem to only get better with time!

Being apart of Pelahatchie for 7 years, have taught me the definition of FAMILY. Since I have been apart of Pelahatchie it has been a great school. From the teachers, and even the students that attend there as well. Everybody know each other well and that what makes it the best. Teachers push students everyday to work hard and do the best they can. They teach kids not to give up, even when they’re on their last string. The staff at Pelahatchie High School wants kids to better themselves and become something they’ve always wanted to be, no matter what it was. Sports is a big thing at Pelahatchie bit they also make sure grades are good to play sports. Not only do they make sure grades are good, they make students feel welcomed and at home.
Pelahatchie High School is great for families looking for a smaller school. I enjoy attending Pelahatchie. I like how the community is growing, and there are nice and friendly people all around. If you are into sports, Pelahatchie can offer good sports teams for your kids.
