I liked that they have many different academics offered to the students and have the vocational school on its campus. The atmosphere is friendly and the teachers are always willing to go beyond to help the students. The students and teachers welcomed my daughter to the school with open arms when she transferred to the school her senior year from a nearby county. This showed me that the staff encouraged students to be open to new students that were new to the school and to not treat them like they didn’t belong since the majority of the students had been in classes together through out there schooling.

My experience at Petersburg High school has been very good. The teachers are helpful and understanding. Like every other school there has been some disruptions, but we have overcome them and went on with our education. Our school is small so most teachers know the students by name.
I believe Petersburg high school isn't the most diverse in students or the culture they have. The school has very little money to buy new supplies. The little money they do have they spend it on things that are of little use. An example is when the school bought flat screen televisions for the cafeteria, but we don't even use them. I would like to see the school use the money they have on more school supplies and see children do more hand-ons activites like in science.
