I love the fact that PHS has later school hours and we are only in school for six and a half hours. Furthermore, students are allowed to leave campus for lunch hours, compared to other schools that restricts lunch in campus or only in the cafeteria.
For a small, rural school, Petersburg High School has a nice variety of extracurricular offerings. Most major sports are available as well as arts, music, environmental, work-study related, drama, culinary, and many more. Many special events and travel opportunities are also available including science/nature events, music and art festivals, CloseUp, and others.
