Pope High School Reviews

Too much stress and expectation is put on students to succeed. Much of my childhood was lost because of the homework assignments. We are still teenagers and need to have a life outside of school. While the cafeteria food has more variety than middle school, the quality is worse. Too much emphasis is placed on sports, especially football and basketball. Those players should not get special treatment just because the sports bring in money. The art programs should not suffer at sports expense. I wish even a little of the money that was spent on sports went to new cleaner bathrooms and textbooks that aren't 20 years old. I do feel that the academics are top notch and have prepared me for college.

Pope was a great high school to go to, teachers are friendly and are always available to help you with anything. The people there are wonderful i have met some of my best friends through this school. I will say the amount of diversity is lacking a little but besides that i would not have wanted to go anywhere else for my high school experience!
Pope is the greatest family I've ever had. I know that's a bold claim, and some may call it corny, but only those who have known what it means to be a Greyhound can truly understand the power within our unity. In the battles we fought, my school was strong; whether it was facing a Monday, conquering our athletic rivals, or lifting up students whose families were fighting for their lives---Pope consisted of real people, who were ready and willing to lend a hand. I had the time of my life supporting my peers in whichever of the many outlets they chose. I've built lasting relationships with the faculty--some as mentors and advisors, others as friends. Those were truly great years and I am eager to return the favor someday so that the students that follow can continue to flourish The Greyhound Way.
