I moved to WV my junior year of high school. Everyone at Poca High School made me not only feel welcome but like family. The teachers were beyond helpful and understanding. They wanted to see you succeed and were more then willing to do anything to help you out. The students included you from the moment you walked in the door. Poca has overcome many challenges. It shows the determination that the whole school has. I made life long friends at Poca. This is a close community oriented school. Once a dot always a dot will always stand true.

I love the staff at Poca High and the level of involvement they bring to their classes. I’ve had a pretty amazing experience there, but the only thing I would change about this school is the maintenance (or lack thereof) of the school and it’s grounds. There are a lot of things that need fixed, upgraded, or just generally cleaned. I think students will show more pride for our school if it really looked like something to be proud of.
I liked that our teachers, while very understanding with outside circumstances, push us to be our best selves. I have reached potentials here that I didn't think I could. Not only that, but they have also aided in readying us for the real world, by teaching us skills such as responsibility, organization, respectfulness/politeness, and how to pay bills or fill out checks. The only thing I would like to see change is how they handle bullying and small problems within the school.
