Phoebus High School Reviews

We're not as encouraged to get an education for what we love to do as much as to pass a class, an SOL, and graduate. We are helped by our counselors to apply for college, grants, and scholarships. We've had 3 principles within 4 years. I have yet to go to a cheerleading competition though Phoebus High Cheer was a strong, skilled squad. As a school we had done well this year's first semester with our new principle as far as violence and handling conflict are concerned and have certain incentives for straight A students and honor roll students, which is great compared to last year in which honor roll was a large population of the school and the collective celebrations we were supposed to have did not usually end well. Violence is a reoccurring issue not only with us, but Virginia schools period it seems. The academy for Video Production was the best educational experience I have had at Phoebus. I learned a lot from it and got the opportunity to explain it to incoming freshman.

I liked the spirit of the school. I would like to change the way that Phoebus enforces the dress code on girls and not so much on guys because every single day of my high school career, I saw guys sagging their pants down to their knees, when they are not at home and they need to pull their pants up. I also like to change how the have semi-formal events such as the awards ceremony they had a couple months ago, mainly because of the band, they left a bad impression on my dad because they had the whole band including the band-front, which was absolutely unnecessary on the band director's part and the current principal's part for not telling him to only have the band out not the band-front. This school is the reason why I'm so glad I graduated. I also liked the security guards, they're awesome
During my experience at Phoebus High school, I made a lot of friends with my peers and teachers and I also enjoyed learning academics and life skills throughout the years. What I like about high school is the clubs and peer groups I attended like the chess club and the National Honor Society. The academic courses I had taken were easy to learn such as Algebra I and II, Robotics, Culinary Arts, Digital Photography, and Art Animation. What I also like about my former school is the teachers and staff who are willing to help out other students with academics and college readiness.
What I would like to see change at Phoebus High is to limit the number of Standards of Learning (SOL) tests and also add courses that would teach more life skills to help other students how to become role models and responsible adults when that graduate.
