Poland Regional High School Reviews

At Poland Regional High School everyone feels supported, connected, and challenged by their teachers, peers, and the curriculum. As a freshman, I felt immediately accepted by everyone and this is probably attributed to the small size of the school and the classes in general. Teachers make an effort to know you for more than your grades and want to see you succeed. The school offers many opportunities for students to show leadership, take challenging courses, receive college credit, and be creative. They also make a point to allow students to participate in many things. During my time at PRHS I have participated in Varsity Field Hockey, Track & Field, Speech and Debate, Drama, Chorus, Band, Student Council, and several honors and AP Classes. This diversity for a student is not only accepted, but encouraged at Poland. Anyone attending the school is lucky to call Knight Nation their family and their home.

Throughout my three years so far at Poland Regional High School, I've had an amazing experience. Everyone is friendly and willing to help you both academically, emotionally and more. I believe I have made life long friends at this school and have learned life lessons that will be carried throughout my life. Although there are some areas in the school that need to be fixed such as the grading system and the required classes to graduate, I believe Poland Regional High School is a highly ranked school compared to the surrounding schools and more.
I graduated in 2013. Teachers are a mixed bag, some are extremely qualified and really care about their students - Mr. Carter and Mr. Novak for example. Some were so unprepared and indifferent, in retrospect it's shocking. The one aspect that really makes my review 2 stars is college readiness. There was no SAT prep options and almost no support whatsoever for first generation college students (like myself). There are a ridiculous amount of required classes that actually made it difficult to take AP classes. The 'roundtable' adviser idea could potentially be great, but they need to be more selective about the teachers that they choose, or provided them with way more training. My adviser was a gym teacher who did not have the tools to help his students and acted more as a homeroom babysitter. For a high school that serves a population were 40% of the students are economically disadvantaged, they do not have the proper support to help students succeed.
