I moved to Pocahontas High School my sophomore year, every since I moved here I have loved it . One of the things I love the most would have to be how the teachers actually help you on your work and do think that your education is a joke. As a senior now I have realized Pocahontas is one of the best schools I have been to and they take you going to college serious, they try and guide us down the path to a better education, yes some may not end up going but that is their choice. I honestly do not think I would change anything about Pocahontas High School because it is a great school with staff that care about our future

This is a decent school. Sports is everything at this school, and the students are picked and played to their ability. The coaches pick their favorites. There are teachers who go over their limit to teach the students. Most teachers care and help their students. In reality, this school is nothing different than any other school. This is a high rated school.
Our school athletics is great! We always have support from our community and also our students. The coaches here push the teams to do there best and want to give everyone a chance. School spirit plays a big role in our athletics at the basketball games our student sections have themes for most home games and our student section has some pretty good chants to cheer on there team.
