I enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere in Prestonsburg High School very much. However, I believe the curriculum could be a bit tougher and more challenging. The teachers here are always willing to help students out by counseling and explaining further in subjects. The athletic programs are incredible.
My experience with Prestonsburg High School has been very good. Teachers and staff are very caring and personable and are willing to help out in any way you need. With such a small student body at PHS, teachers are able to adjust their speed of teaching to fit each class best and make sure each student is receiving the attention they need.
Love my school, small town feel, teachers really care about the students. They prepare students for life outside of High School, not just for college but for adulthood.
