I really enjoyed PIHS academics and athletics. Academics were of the highest caliber with teachers that truly cared about students success. Athletics were also of the highest caliber. Administrators expected overall sportmanship, team work, and school pride. Coaches not only instilled the need for cooperation and sportmanship but also hard work ethic.

They give a good education and they do a good job preparing students for college, but they sometimes disregard public opinion and they need to check their priorities. For example when they asked teachers and others whether they wanted students to have iPads or computers, the majority said computers and yet we received iPads.
The teachers that are employed at the high school I attend are very devoted individuals. There isn't one teacher who wouldn't go out of their way to help out any student. All of the teachers are easy to get along with. They will change the way they teach if the students don't understand the lesson. Each teacher is very experienced and well equipped to teach the subject they do. Some of them have past experiences that allow them to give real-world examples. Each of the departments have equal and consist grading systems. A student could go to any teacher knowing that they'll help with anything they need. It doesn't just have to be school work. It could include family problems, relationships issues, or any number of things. Presque Isle High School provides a safe and healthy environment for all students.
