I'm the mother of a senior and sophomore. My experience with the school has been positive. My senior has accepted a substantial scholarship to a great school. She has participated in sports, choir, NHS, AP classes and has really enjoyed her teachers and classmates. Pottstown is unique, but it does have opportunities. My sophomore is involved in art and student government. I appreciate the work of the students, parents and teachers at Pottstown Senior High.

Most teachers taught really well, others did not. Although I did have great experiences interacting with my peers.
Again, because of our school district's socioeconomic status, our district received a grant this year that all students K-12 receive free breakfast and lunch, so it is very cost-effective for students. That is, unless you want a second or third lunch...then a student has to pay for it. The length of lunch is never long enough if you expect to get through the lunch line and still have time to eat without eating quickly. They added a new salad/sandwich bar this year, which is great!
