Petersburg High School Reviews

55 reviews
All Categories
I graduated from Petersburg High in 2017. Two main aspects I was disappointed were the lack of campus security and college preparation. The security guards did not always patrol the entire campus as some students were known for skipping certain classes. Regarding college preparation, there were not enough college visits presented to the students. Also, classes should have been held to show students how to properly create college and scholarship essays.

My experience with Petersburg High was good, especially my 12th grade year. The teachers at Petersburg High was very helpful and they help you prepare for college or even the workforce. They care and want to see you succeed.
The extracurricular course in my school are quite interesting and career moving. We have cosmology, Culinary Arts, Engineering, childcare, and much more.most students try to get into cosmology or Childcare. None of the course happen after school unless everything being bored castes for the whole community to see.
