Pentucket Regional Senior High School Reviews

The teachers at Pentucket set you up for success. They are passionate about the subjects they teach and will stay after school with you if needed. I would say that they prepared me for college. Pentucket offers a range of AP classes to take while starting to add even more classes. The sports offered at Pentucket are also really good. Pentucket athletes are always known for having great sportsmanship. Pentucket does have some flaws. The building is in need of a major overhaul. The parking fee of $180 is insane. Where does the money even go? The food, while barely edible, needs to be more nutritious. Even the Wi-fi doesn't work half the time. If Pentucket addresses its flaws, then it will be a place that has a world-class education with a small town flair.

Pentucket High School offered a variety of challenging classes ranging from Honors to AP. I believe I got a very good education there, and I enjoyed the athletic program. The teachers are good, across the board, and most are very passionate about their jobs. A positive is that the high school just added a permanent police officer on the premises. I feel a lot more safe now. The big problem with Pentucket is the facility. It is falling apart, and the sports facilities are poor as well. We desperately need a new high school. Additionally, the computers and internet are awful. The school needs a complete overhaul.
My expereince at Pentucket has been a long yet exciting journey. I have enjoyed my four years at the school. It could even count as 4 and a half. The school staff and coaches were so kind and welcoming that, as an 8th grader, I was able to join the varsity cheerleading and the freshman softball team. It only just began my four year career as an enthusiastic and determined varsity athlete. The school takes sports quite seriously and everyone is passionate about what they do. And after a long day of learning and contributing to an academic atmosphere, there are an incredible amount of after school activities to keep one involved and still active. Pentucket is a school I wish that i never had to leave.
