I adore the familial and community environment this high school provides. I am a recent graduate and I was a part of the band. Although some classes feel useless, the arts programs are worth taking and deserve more financial help than they receive. I'll never forget my experiences at PCHS, and I hope the school system will continue to improve.

Always being supported here at PCHS. Math department is outstanding. Basketball teams are great. Track team broke 7 school records last year. Teachers are great and the principal is fun and easy to talk to. Over all great school!
My experience at Pocahontas County High School was very positive and productive. I felt safe, supported and always happy when I was sitting in the classroom desks. I gained alot of education from the teachers who were instructing me and the administration was always there to help. I felt that my high school is one of the most devoted and "homey" schools in the state of West Virginia. I am graduating from this school in May, 2017 and I feel very prepared to go out into the "real world" and start collge and my life.
