Pottstown Senior High School Reviews

Going four years here, allowed me to interact with one of the most diverse and friendly communities I have seen. As an ESL student, I saw very little prejudice against people like me. The teachers go above and beyond to make sure every student is prepared for not only college but life in general. If I could change one thing, it would be the mindset of the students here. There are so many talented students but they do not showcase their talents because of how others might judge them. They also go with the stereotype that since my school is "poor," it does not offer opportunity for its students. This is completely inaccurate because I have seen students take the resources offered by my school, and got into Ivy League schools, taken a scholarship trip to Ecuador, and won first prize in the We Are Innovator's Challenge. So, my philosophy is, it is not about what the school offers, but what you can achieve from all that is offered to you.

The classes were pretty good, the teachers cared about the students, but the administrators weren't so great. The principal rarely replied to emails and the guidance counselors always had problems with schedules.
Pottstown Highschool has been a very fun, educational experience for me. We take pride in our sports teams and other clubs such as the marching band. The teachers create a fun, safe, and educational environment to ensure the success of the students.
