Pelham High school is an institution that is strong in some areas but lacks in others, but I definitely would recommend it to someone who lives in the area. The teachers care, and administration cares also, college preparedness could be improved on, but overall it is a good school.
At the time of myself being there, there were a couple of okay teachers, and Honor's Students got the best overall educational experience (I was an honors student). Everyone else was just "there". Honor's classes were all-or-none. You had to beg the State Superintendent to take college courses (as a Black student). They had no idea how to address race and racism, and I didn't notice how racist the system was until I graduated and did research on racism.
