My experience at Pocola High School has had its up and downs, but overall it was a a great experience. The thing that I enjoyed the most was how open, nice, and extremely friendly everyone is. Every time we get a new student I always ask them, "How do you like it so far?" They respond with "It is going great everyone is so nice." The faculty is extremely helpful as well. They try their very best to help any students who is in need of help or does not understand the lesson we just went over. If they see that you at least try and make an attempt to learn they will not fail you. If there is anything I could change about my experience would probably just be the lunch food. The past 3 years the lunch food has been absolutely horrible.

I am currently a junior at Pocola High School, I have been attending there since Pre-K. My experiences are pretty okay (besides all of the fights) if you ask me. Sure Pocola is small but it is also loving and caring to everyone at Pocola we are just like a huge family reunion everyday we are usually happy to see most kids at the school. I mostly like how we have gotten different lunches that are a lot more nutritious for us instead kf food that just made kids starve themselve until they returned home. Before I graduate I would luke to see the school get completely remodeled in order to support all of the kids we have now and it would also help widen a variety of classes that we could take, and it would also help people that need jobs too.
I have made great memories at Pocola High School, but I wish I would've had the chance to go to a better school. The administration in our school frowns upon student involvement. We are only allowed one pep rally a year, our assemblies are a disgrace and forced. Walking down the halls is depressing. The lockers are gross and there is no decoration anywhere. So much focus is out into sports when our teams are not even good. Our chemistry class can't even do experiments because we lack the supplies to do so. It hurts me to say such bad things about my high school, but it's the truth. Any effort of changing things is shot down and students and teachers simply don't care. The only good thing about my high school are the few teachers that made an effort, but were ran off by the administration.
