Positive overall experience with both children at PCHS. Some incredibly excellent teachers, however, some of the teachers with tenure seem to checked out prior to their actually retiring. Excellent school spirit!

Great student body, hower, if you’re looking for a school with outstanding academics this is not the place. There are about 10 teachers who are really good, then just don’t push there kids. In terms of helping me along with the college admissions procress and helping me get in to the schools I want it is horrible, the lady in charge of that sector has no idea what she is doing. The clubs, however, are fantastic. There is a ton of diversity with them and lots to choose from. A lot are a little unorganized, but that’s fine. Our Model United Nations team is amazing and ranks alongside a lot of the other top MUN schools.
The amount of pride and spirit at my school is unmatched in comparison to any other high school in our district. The staff encourages involvement- whether it be in sports, clubs/organizations, and even reminding students to reach out for assistance when necessary. The only thing I wish to change would be the overall appearance of the environment. I think having the creativity and talent of the students involved in the fine arts programs would give their hard work attention and liven up the place we spend the most time at.
