Petoskey High School Reviews
Something that is truly incredible about Petoskey High School is their band program. It was one of the groups I felt like was a family to me. The program is not only successful, but different walks of life go through it. I had the privilege to be a drum major as a senior for the band, and it was one of the best experiences. One thing that I would like to see change is just the bullying that happens. There is bullying at any school you go to, but it is an important issue to keep working on! Overall, I was happy with my experience at Petoskey High School.
The facilities are of very high quality, like the brand new stadium constructed on campus, that offers a vast amount of activities for students like football, soccer, and lacrosse. There are many different AP classes offered mostly for upper class men, but the lack of focus on computers and new technology may be a disappointment for some. The food is rather unappealing for the most part, the ethnic diversity is not high, and, if you attend PHS, you will certainly have teachers that care about your education, but you will also have those who are less attentive.
Being apart of a new uprising Catholic High school has been challenging but also very rewarding. Every student is taking college level classes that are being classically taught. In our history English and writing courses we start with the beginning of time and travel through to where we are today. With reading books such as Dante Divine comedy, Heart of Darkness and many more of the classic books before reaching our Junior year we are able to really appreciate literacy. Not only is St. Michael devoted in academics but in our extracurricular actives. I have been fortunate enough to personally start a social dance program that is open to all high school students, where they learn ballroom dancing. There has been very limited limitations to my high school experience and I am forever grateful to the men and women that have provided this school for me.
