Petal High School Reviews
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.
Petal high school is like a well oiled machine. Everything runs smooth! Amazingly talented students, intelligent teachers, and understanding administrators. Our school is all about reaching goals. Although our student body is very involved, I’d love to see more clubs for those students who may not yet have a group to go to.
Do not have a problem with the education of the school this school is the reason we moved here. but If your child is not in the right click they are bullied and targeted. The school cares more about the dress code then stopping the bullies! I have loved most of the teachers however the principal is another issue! I like pretty much everything about Petal schools. The teachers are great and the students are held to a very high standard. The rules for the students are very strict. We moved here from a large northern city where it seemed like the students were running the schools. The only thing I do not like is the politics involved in the sports programs. There is a lot of favoritism for students from certain families. If you are new to the area unless you are a freakishly good player you ain't got much of a chance to play. Overall Petal is a very good school district and I'm glad we moved here.
