Pomeroy Junior/Senior High School is the best school because they have amazing staff and try to get everyone involved in activities.
Pomeroy is a small town. The community is amazing and they always try their best to make the experience amazing and stress free. They look out for their students and always have their backs.
Pomeroy High School is a great school in a small community! With under 100 students in grades 9-12, the tight knit community is full of support from both students and faculty. However, because it is such a small school, it may not have as many opportunities for clubs and classes. The classes that are offered are taught by caring and knowledgable teachers who are dedicated to their student's learning experience. There are many ways to get involved outside of class as well. Prominent clubs at PHS are FFA, FBLA, and ASB. Sports are also a huge part of the school culture in Pomeroy. Every program has been successful at the state level for a number of years, and every student has equal opportunity to get involved.

Very small town, and school. The teachers I think tend to be a bit lazier, and are not always willing to help. The academic counselor was awful, instead of helping me, informed me I didn't need to take a particular class seriously, so, I didn't.
Pomeroy Jr Sr High School is a small school with a lot of student, teacher, and parent involvement. The teachers care and make the school feel safer and more friendly. The best part is the attention the teachers give to us and the willingness to help us have the best possibly experience we can.
The fact that Pomeroy High School is a small school works both for and against the acceptance of diversity. As the town of Pomeroy consists of Caucasians, I was concerned with how the student body would react and treat a new student it received that was African American. To my delight, I found he was readily accepted, and within a week he'd become friends with nearly everyone in the entire school, including myself. On the other hand peer pressure is prominent in this campus as rumors fly fast in small towns. Verbal bullying is the only problem, but it is quickly nipped in the bud when it shows itself.
The food here is edible. It varies in such ways that don't seem imaginable. Most days the food is good, but every once in a while it is quite gross. They try to make the food as healthy as possible, and partially that is where they go wrong, as the taste seems off. However, some days the food is so delicious that it is simply mouth watering. It truly is mysterious how it works. Additionally, there is always the option of salad, and individuals who have allergies are catered to.
Pomeroy High School has recently been remodeled, so the condition of the edifice is immaculate. The buildings interior is always very cleanly, and the gym is available for a short period after school to play basketball. As this school is a small one, there is only one guidance counselor, but he is more than enough. This man knows each student by name, and is usually available to discuss any issues needed to be discussed. Parent involvement this year is atrocious. Parents of the seniors this year hardly involved at all, save a few who do all the fundraising that is supposed to go towards the senior class trip. The technology in the school is brand new and very high tech.
My overall experience at this school have been pleasant. As it is so small, everyone is really close, and knows everyone else by name. This makes for a close student/teacher bond, and teachers are really friendly and helpful towards students. All of the faculty at Pomeroy seem to genuinely enjoy their occupation, and the students. If a student is in need of one on one assistance from a teacher, they will come in before school, after school, and even use their lunch break to help out. In fact, during a teacher's prep period, they welcome students to come in and get additional help. The experience and feel Pomeroy High School has is one of the best.
I would give Pomeroy Jr/Sr High School a three out of five ranking in the Extracurricular activities area. The logic behind my review is based on three key elements, which I will explain.
The first and foremost element, which is Sports Commitment/ Spirit, compelled me to give Pomeroy a five out of five. The incredible spirit that this school possesses, is in part, dedicated to our sports teams. At each home game, be it for Volleyball, Basketball, Wrestling, Golf, Track, and Football despite that there less than 260 students in the Elementary and Jr/Sr High School combined, there is always a large crowd rooting for their fellow Pirates.
The Second key element was one that negatively influenced my decision. Variety, or lack there of. Despite the fact that the school has its own Golf team, they do not provide Soccer, and Baseball. There is also a lack of clubs, aside from Future Farmers of America (FFA) and Future Business Leaders of America, (FBLA).
Last but certainly not least, the final element I considered when placing my review was the way different sports are treated. At Pomeroy High School, Volleyball, Basketball, Wrestling and Football are considered the most important sports. These sports receive the most recognition, feeds are put on for the athletes, the players are sponsored, and many, many people show up to show their support for the teams. There is the complete opposite scenario for the "lesser" sports such as Cross-country. Cross-country runners are not sponsored, almost never have spectators, and are told by their peers that Cross-country isn't a real sport. This also negatively impacted my decision.
Despite obvious favoritism among the sports, and lack of variety, Pomeroy students exhibits a passion for its sports, and academics. All in all, they do a good job.
Some popular classes that this school has to offer include Ap Biology, Ap Stats, Spanish 1, and Spanish 2, Weights class, Ag Mechanics, and computer classes such as Digitools.
Although all the teachers are very inept at their job, some of the substitute teachers are not. In fact, there are a few substitute teachers that are more like glorified babysitters. When such a teacher is placed in Math class, students knowledgably ban together to work together to figure out the problem, or the principal is called in to teach the lesson. Other than the rare occasions where a substitute hasn't a clue, academics are fantastic at this school, and we were ranked in the top 5 schools just recently.
In Pomeroy High School, there is a zero tolerance for bullying. The principle personally sees to it that students with a failing grade are put on a strict academic plan until their grade is raised, and athletes are not allowed to participate in sports, should they have a failing grade.
The dress code in this school is quite strict. Swift action is taken if there is an individual in violation of the code, and they are either sent home to change, or forced to wear clothes provided by the school. Female attire that is too low cut, shows bra straps, or if the clothing is too tight are sent home to change. Slippers, pajamas, yoga pants and strapless clothing are additionally banned.
A student's attendance of school is closely monitored here. Should a student not come to school, within the hour of class starting, you will receive a phone call asking where said student is. However, if you are sick, you are asked to remain at home until you are well.

The crime rate is very low due to it being a small town
The food is always good. It really depends in your food choice.
There are only sports for extracurricular's
It is small town and it is hard to not to break the rules.
