As of 2017, there are no academic clubs -- debate, math, science, tech, quiz bowl, etc -- at Person, except for maybe the book club. Person High also is not very clean, evidenced by the many cockroaches in classrooms -- though this is pretty standard for a high school. The teaching staff ranges from the very best you can find (particularly in the history and foreign language departments) to those who have either given up on or have trouble controlling their classrooms or effectively teaching, so it is difficult to rate them as a whole.
I am a senior at Person High School. In the four years that I have attended this school I have been able to expand my knowledge with great teachers for my core classes. And the teachers for my elective classes have been outstanding and very knowledgeable about the subjects they were teaching. They also provided a lot hands on approach for learning. I have not had any safety issues while attending Person High. I feel very safe at school. I feel the teachers have prepared me for college. The administrative staff have been very helpful when I have had questions regarding everything from printing previous years report cards to be very helpful in selecting and applying to college.
