I liked that Pfalls was a different environment than the private school that I went to. The teachers are easy to talk to and it´s been fun learning from them. I would say that although my overall experience at this school was good It could have been better.
I have great memories at Potomac Falls. I was involved in lots of sports and clubs like Guitar Club, Catholic Student Association, Student council, basketball, lacrosse, and cross country. I think the teachers I had were really happy with the subject they taught and tried to get the students engaged with all sorts of projects and class assignments. This school offers AP classes which my schedule was made up of almost completely and I never scored under a 3. I got college credit for all of my AP classes. There were a few teachers that may be needed to step down from teaching, but they were regular/academic class teachers so that is only what I had heard from others. Their guidance team is also phenomenal.
Personally, I have liked my time at Potomac Falls. It's a good school overall and I really liked how they handeled the COVID-19 situation.
I liked the teachers, the courses, the people. I would like them to improve on college readiness though.
I like how everyone is so involved with the school and the community. If you don’t know how to get involved, all you have to do is ask someone and 9/10 you’ll get the answer you were looking for.
I like the diversity we see at Potomac Falls, including the diversity in academics. I would like to see more funding in the arts programs, as everything more or less goes to sports.
Great resources and some great teachers. Offers a variety of classes to suite interests. Also offers a variety of sports and music/arts. Wide range of electives available to students to foster individual development and interests. Most classes are engaging but it often depends on the teacher.
I went to private school in middle school. I was so scared to go to public school. It was a new environment with brand new people. I found that there were so many resources that I could use to connect myself with other students. I really did not have anything to be worried about. I joined volleyball and played on the freshmen and junior varsity team my freshman and sophomore year. There, I met some of my best friends. Their sports program feels like family. It was a great way to get to know some amazing people. I also found that there were so many clubs I could join. I joined a few clubs each year, and found the number of clubs I participated in increase as my years in high school went by. This school helped me grow socially and academically. I grew in confidence and stood up for what I believed in. The teachers that I had instilled in me great values and morals. I am so grateful to have been able to go to such a school where there are teachers who care for their students. Go PFalls!
The teachers are being very nice. They care about me and helped me a lot. And I love the guitar program here. The director is a super nice!
People give it a bad rep but I have had a great and positive experience. Most of the teachers are great and really help you. Shout out English and History Departments!! The people are really chill and don't cause that much drama.
The environment at this school is very welcoming, teachers are always helpful and students are kind. The school could improve on our school spirit and our a majority of our sports teams could be better. Potomac Falls has been trying to become more green and it's improved over the last couple of years.
Potomac Falls is a great diverse school with high academics and athletics. Many better opportunities with AP and DE classes. Plus good teachers, however the math department is lacks good statistics and teachers.
With the exception of some very incredible teachers, most of the staff, including the administration, is not good at doing their job. There are many teachers that are not helpful at all to students and simply do not know how to be a teacher. The staff has done a terrible job of regulating the students, as many students will openly do drugs in school and engage in violent fights in the halls. The school turns a blind eye to a vast majority of the school’s clubs and extracurriculars with the exception of athletic programs. The safety measures in the school are lackluster at best; students from other schools have repeatedly entered our school to start fights. Many clubs don’t receive any sort of respect or funding, especially the fine arts department, which houses incredible students who are often mocked and bullied by they school’s population. I overall did not enjoy my four years here and would’ve transferred out if I had the ability to.
The school has a great athletics program that everyone enjoys. Everyone is involved in the school, for example, clubs and the athletics.
I honestly had a great experience at the school. There were definitely times when I was at the school where it got a little hectic but overall I felt safe and everything was under control. The teachers, for the most part, are amazing at their jobs and they care about each and every student. The sports programs are definitely some of the best in the county, the school would’ve been a real powerhouse at many sports had much the great talent not moved to other schools but the coaches do well with what they have.
PFHS has a great environment, plenty of diverse activities and athletics, and a helpful and supportive staff environment. The teachers (the science and English departments specifically) do their best to make their classes interesting and informative. The math department is... less than perfect, and a few select staff members in it and the visual arts department don’t live up to the rest of the educators’ levels. Overall a great school, highly recommended.
Potomac Falls High School consists of a variety of amazing teachers. The teachers go above and beyond for their students in order to help them succeed. The counseling department is also extraordinary as they always schedule time to meet with students and provide additional aid if needed. This is a wonderful school and place to grow as a student and individual.
