Poth High school was a very small, close knit community and allowed students to connect with classmates, teammates, and most importantly teachers. The small community location of the school always made me feel welcome and I got to go to school and grow up with the same people all twelve grades. Poth has been a wonderful school to attend, with great school spirit, friendly teachers, and many facilities offered to the students. Although, Poth is great, I would like to see more classes being offered. Poth is such a small school that we are limited to what the school can offer. Also, I would like to see perhaps renovations to our old building. Overall, Poth ISD has been a great school.

I moved to Poth High School the beginning of my freshman year. It was a change that I very much needed. The change that I loved was being in a smaller and closer community. My graduating class has only 79 students total, which is very small when looking at other schools, so it means that I know everyone and everything about them. At times, it was not great to be so close to each other, but when looking towards the future I found that being able to have a class that does everything together is something I would not change for the world. I made many new friends that I now call family and I have been able to experience the lovely adventure of high school with. If there is anything I would change it would be hygiene of our school. No school is perfect, but since we live in the middle of the country and are very small there many mice, snakes, and dogs that roam around our school.
Poth High School is your average small town school in Texas. Some of the teachers are very helpful and know what they are doing, while you can tell that others are the exact opposite. The original building is very old, and is nearly falling apart.
