Petal High School Reviews
Petal High is an amazing school. It’s very fundamentally, the diversity is wide and everyone gets along majority of the time. Petal High is like one big family, when one needs help, we all help. It’s like a family full of people i’ve been with all my life, and i love it!
Petal High School is an amazing school! We have a great administration, full of people who love the students and want the best for every individual student. The teaching staff is even better! It's high school, of course, which makes it hard for the teachers to tend to every student; however, each teachers does everything they can to give ever individual student the best learning experience they can have.
I loved attending Petal High School. it was honestly the best time in my life. All of my teachers, from my AP European history teacher to my AP English teacher, were very caring and attentive to students' needs. They helped in any way they could. Additionally, the principal there was very invested in making his students better. There were, however, a few things I would change about Petal High School. The library, first and foremost, needs to be redone. The computers there are about as old as the Windows XP that they still use as their Operating System, and the library also has a very small selection of books. The cafeteria is also in need of revamping. The food is honestly disgusting.
