Prince George High School is a great learning environment for students who would like to pursue an education after high school. The faculty and staff are supportive and extremely helpful, donating 2 sometimes 3 hours after school to help students who have not grasped the concept of the class they are in. But there are some things that I would like to see changed such as the interior design of the school and sports facilities. All in all Prince George High School is a great place.

I am a graduate of Prince George High School and a previous student of the Petersburg school system. The academic standard is much higher at this location than that of the surrounding areas and it is also a safer location to go to school. I was very active in sports and held office in many clubs while at PGHS. I am also a minority that was raised in a single parent home with a low income. If it wasn't for the education I received at Prince George High School, I would not have had the chance to go to college. As an adult with friends who have become teachers I know that unfortunately not all teachers go into their career wanting to make a difference. Regardless that does not take away from the academic standard PGHS holds because they do enforce high performance. I may not have 'loved' all my teachers but I respect what Prince George High School had given me which was an actual education and a chance.
This is my first year at Prince George High and I’m not a fan, to be honest. I have good friends, but a lot of people aren’t very welcoming. My classes are great, I have amazing teachers and the clubs give great opportunities. The food has gotten better over the past year according to what I’ve been told. The faculty could use some work on attitude and how they go about their ways of speaking to students. The worst part about the school is money, we have no money for resources. They are continuously asking students for money week after week for clubs and resources which is aggravating to me. Also they have these SOL tests, I don’t like them. I just moved here for being overseas for a long time, I have never taken one. Because of that I have to take 5 SOLs that we’re required from freshman and sophomore year and take SOLs that are required for my junior year, this year. It’s not fair for me or any other student who has moved around.
