Peters Township High School Reviews
Peters is okay. I always felt like there was a large lack of diversity and a unique sense of peer pressure in which everyone tried to be exactly the same. I was satisfied with the education I was provided with and the extracurriculars. When I went off to college, I realized how much our school lacked in teaching us about mental health and other important topics. We had extensive lessons about alcohol, drugs, and bullying (this one was unfortunately not taken to heart by many). It would’ve been nice to open conversation to mental health and possibly diversity and acceptance in many different categories. Once you are graduating, prepare to fit in with the 98% of students who are attending college. I wish we encouraged the possibility of pursing other decisions post-graduation. I also wish that parents of this township were not as overly involved as they were. Especially in school gossip about young teens they’ve never even met.
Peters Township High School offers a unique high school experience in which it provides students a safe and comfortable learning environment. Teachers are supportive and absolutely want their students to succeed, while challenging them to earn their grades. Additionally, this district offers students a wide array of sports teams and clubs to join and make new friends. If I would change anything, I would try to make class sizes a little smaller if possible in order to make learning new information easier to understand and ask questions about. However that may not be an option due to the size of the high school. The average class has around 18 to 28 students, but I still feel that smaller classes would be ideal to help students fully grasp the concept being taught. Overall, I have had a wonderful time at this school and I feel that teachers do an excellent job of preparing students for not only the next grade level, but for life.
I overall enjoyed my 4 years at PTHS. Going from a private school to a public school wasn't that hard of a transition. I mostly liked all of the teachers. You're always going to have that mean one or the really not helpful. The other students are spoiled brats, but I was able to choose my friends based on the character even if they were a little spoiled. It's a very high class area so I didn't feel my safety was at risk. I wish the school had good wifi.
