Poca High School Reviews
I enjoyed my 4 years at Poca. The teachers are great and the rest of the faculty are very helpful. I participated in a variety of after school organizations including marching band, show choir band as well as others. I also ran track all four years. They prepared me to enter my college years very well. I was encouraged on a daily basis to do my best.
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.
I love the community of Poca. The teachers care about your education and everyone fits it. We are one big family. Our school always supports one another and it’s just a great high school experience.
I transferred from a private school so I was very scared of what to expect in a public school setting. I was surprised that I was accepted so easily by everyone. I have met people that I can't imagine my life without now. I did get bullied at a point but it was taken care of. I have had a new principle every year. I am happy with the one that we have now and I hope that Poca High School will be known as one of the best schools one day. Once A Dot Always A Dot!
Poca is a very friendly school! Every student is well known and i have enjoyed my 4 years here! I know everyone who walks in the front door! I have learned a lot here at Poca High School. I am glad i spent my four years here at this lovely small school and matured so much in four years
Poca is a very tight knit community because of how small our area is. As a school, we work together and take pride in all of our success no matter how small. I have made life long friends at PHS through not only the students, but also the staff. We all strive to help one another succeed, which just brings us closer together. I couldn't ask for a better school.
Poca High School is a wonderful school! The staff is extremely supportive in everything the students do, whether it is academic or extracurricular. The students are one big family, and when support is needed, they all come together to help out!
I've spent almost 2 years at Poca High School now and I can say with certainty that the Poca Dots are a family and a community to be proud of. The teachers work hard to make sure that we move forward in life to do the things we want to.
Poca High School created a fun environment for learning. The teachers and students were all like family and I am so blessed to come from such a little town.
Poca High School has the potential to be a great place to learn, study, and grow. The tight knit community is fantastic, but as far as academics go, it could use some improvement. Being a former student, once I arrived to college, I did not feel prepared for my classes and lacked some necessary background knowledge to many of the intro classes I was in.
While there are some disadvantages, there is a fantastic sense of community and support. Teachers are very willing to help whenever you need it as long as you are motivated to seek their help. There is a very limited amount of academically motivated students, but those who are, achieve high success. My years at Poca were fun as well as educational, and I wouldn't change it for the world.
It's not the best school because no one is perfect. However, it is full of great people who are mostly nice and welcoming and very helpful.
The overall cleanliness is okay. The food isn't all that great because it's all processed and frozen.
Student involvement just depends on the sport and how well the team is doing. For example, not too many people pay attention to the girls basketball team just because it's a girls team. They do however pay great attention to the boy's basketball team especially since they got second place at states last year.
It really just depends on who you get as a teacher. There are some teachers that I like a lot just because I am used to their teaching style.
I personally don't participate in very many clubs because in all honesty I don't want to stay at school any longer than I need to. Plus I usually have a lot of homework to do afterschool anyways.
The food is so regulated now days. I don't place blame on our cooks they do the best with what they have in he kitchen. The food they get in now is not good stuff to cook. They think it is healthy by cutting how much we get and trying to make it healthy, but the good is still pretty bad. This is the county and states fault. The cooks at our school are amazing with what they have to deal with.
