Very unruly classrooms unless you are part of DE, AP, or Governors’ School programs, which is a small percentage of the school population. Many uncaring and sometimes seemingly uneducated teachers that lack management skills. Poor food, overly strict yet uncaring, domineering administration, poor food and very few clubs. The sports are alright though and the resources and college prep are great. Great guidance counselors and lots of attempts to reach out to the parents. 8/10 resources, 2/10 environment.

Prince edward county highschool has provided me with plenty of friends. The students in this school are loyal friends. They help you succeed and create wonderful memories along the way. The teachers want nothing but to see you be successful, you can go to tuem with any problem you have and they won't fail in helping you solve it. This high school is predominately african American, so if I were to change something in our school I'd like to see more of a role model image in our administration.
I'm a senior and my experience at Prince Edward could've been way better. The classes suck and are reckless unless you're enrolled into AP or DE classes. The food isn't that good unless they make certain dishes. The administration is overly strict about simple situations. Since I've been through four years here, I'm a proud Eagle, but if I had a choice, I'd choose somewhere else to graduate
