Pottsboro High School Reviews

Great school from the building to the teachers. Prepared me for college. Food is not so great but that's to be expected with most school food. Diversity doesn't exist here, which is a shame because it does not accurately mirror the real world and give students an appreciation for people different then themselves. Sports, football mainly, are dominant and an alright amount of clubs and organizations are here but are not the focal point which is a shame. One thing to improve would be evening out the support and funding among ALL organizations and not just sports. Overall it has been an enjoyable past four years and a great place to grow up.

Pottsboro High School offers a decent education for a small town school. However, there are multiple areas where Pottsboro could stand to improve. There is very little recognition for students with achievements outside of sports and athletics.
Moving to the small, quiet, town of Pottsboro, proved to be one of the best choices my parents made. Coming from a small private school, trying to find the right high school, seemed like a daunting task, but the Pottsboro School District made this transition a smooth and easy one. The town, and high school alike, feel like a huge family, where Friday nights under the lights rule the town, and where students feel comfortable in the school, and go on to achieve greater things than thought possible. The atmosphere of this hidden gem of a town and school, keeps its arms open for any new and coming members of the community. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful Lake Texoma backs this warm, welcoming, little town, this is a place and school no one should pass up.
