Pocomoke High School is quite privileged to have all that we do. We have an amazing staff including the administration, teachers, guidance counselors (including the good ole' golden retriever -Rudy), and janitors. Every student here is involved in something in the school because everyone is always open and excepting to each other. It has been an honor being in this school system for 14 years of my life. I am truly going to miss almost everything about it and I am sure I will be coming back as a Warrior Alumni to keep watching this school excel in all it does together as a school, as a family, as a warrior!

I love the education system that Pocomoke high school has. It is a good environment to learn in. However, if there were one thing I could change about Pocomoke high school, it would be the way the administration is set up. It seems that many students get sent to ISS or OSS for very simple reasons. Yes, a consequence is needed but instead of big punishments for minor behavior problems, I believe minor behavior problems should only result in a detention verses a bigger action such as ISS or OSS.
Pocomoke High School is great for those who are on a winning sports team. For example those on the field hockey team won the state championships 2 years ago are treated like royalty, while those on let’s say the tennis team are not. Another thing about PHS is that while in many other schools if you curse at a teacher you’re suspended, but at Pocomoke you just get a short “talking to”, and are pretty much let off the hook.
