When I attended Prestonsburg High School, the teachers were very kind to students, although some of them are disinterested in teaching content to those students. The administration doled our discipline according to academic ability and favoritism. It did not, at least when I attended, properly equip students to deal with higher education.

Prestonsburg High School is a great school! They have great academics, sports, teachers and staff. They also have the best community support!
Prestonsburg High School is extremely focused on thier sports programs. They do participate in an Early Collage Accademy in which I am enrolled. I will graduate with an associates degree in arts and science. I wish to see the school in this rural area focus more on acedemics so they are preparing students to obtain higher scores on thier act which in turn would make more students eligible for competitive scholarships. That is why I Dutch diligently for financial help to further my education.
