Perry County Central High School Reviews

Going into the school they had a reputation of being a good high school, from classes and getting the students ready to go off on their own, to school involvement in extracurricular activities and clubs. However, before I got to the high school that started to decrease, and now we have very small school participation, and it's hard for us students to get a good education because many of the teachers leave. Last year alone I got 3 new teachers at Christmas break because teachers will quit and move to other schools. Also no one participates in sports or clubs anymore. One of the sports teams I am on is the cheer team and at my school we have an elite program, with 4 state tittles and placing second in the Nation recently, but now we can't even seem to get a team together, which is very saddening since it is my senior year. So in my school I would like to see better academics, and teachers that actually teach their classes along with more participation in clubs and sports.

I think PCC is a great school. I think that the teachers actually care about the students and want to help them advance as far as they can. I would like to see different foreign languages taught here.
There are your sports teams, such as basketball and football, then as you move down the hierarchy, volleyball, soccer, wrestling, etc.

Then all the way at the bottom of the totem pole, you find your art clubs: drama, band, art, etc.

The sports teams, specifically basketball and football, recieve a majority of the funding while the arts and lower sports recieve next to nothing. But, despite this, all clubs and organizations seem to make do and succeed.
