Philomath High School Reviews

PHS is a great school with small classes with great teachers who will connect with you and make sure you stay ahead in your classes and want you to succeed. A lot of the staff their are experienced and are there for the students and not the pay, especially Mr. Schermerhorn. One of the big downsides of Philomath is that there is not a great diversity in Language courses and ethnic groups. Philomath High is a school that teaches their students to always do great in your extra curricular activities and to do just as well in the classroom.

Philomath is a small school of about 360 students. There is an incredible staff here to help students grow and develop in and out of the classroom. There is a variety of classes to spark everybody's interests. There is a very talented music program with a band and choir who has gone to state many times and placed in the top 5 in the state. There are also very strong sports programs and many opportunities to try something new. The coaches are superb and really help motivate athletes and improve. The facilities themselves are very nice. Recently remodeled, there are two gyms, an auditorium, efficient classes, and great grass fields for football and soccer.
Philomath High School has a great atmosphere that promotes learning and opportunities. It allows students to participate in a variety of activities, and the 4A size allows everyone to experience different interests. I believe that Philomath High School pushes students to become high achievers, and readies people from a variety of different backgrounds for their future.
