Perry County Central High School Reviews

The faculty, teachers, and student body are some of the most amazing and supportive individuals in my life, give or take the odd few. However, funding seems a bit off (especially for music and visual arts programs, which basically fund themselves). It can be hard to get things done at times but that is understandable. I had an amazing four years and PCC and made memories that will last a lifetime! But the food sucks.

My school has many different programs and pathways available for students to take. Over the past several years our sports programs have been very successful, as have our pathways such as our Biomedical program, our JROTC program, and we also have a very strong business pathway. However, there are also dome things I would like to change about our school. I think that we should have Martin Luther King Jr. Day off. He was one of the most important people in US history. Also, the food we eat has to change. The food they serve us is horrible and very unhealthy. I think that we need a wider selection of food for lunch, rather than eating the same nasty, greasy food every day.
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.
