Prince George High School is a really good school to attend! They have a really good academic program. The teachers and staff members are very helpful. They do everything they can to help students pass their classes and help them graduate. The teachers take their teaching very seriously. They also have a program that helps students that are new around the school. They even have a great program for for students that have a learning disabilities.

The atmosphere in the school has always been friendly, and Prince George High School has the best staff! Always attentive of the students health, safety, and education.
I love how involved the teachers are with all of their students. I wish you could change the scheduling process up some. For example i only needed to classes to graduate but they made me fill up my schedule with others i didn't need to graduate. Other than that i think my over all experience at PGHS has been very good. Some of the other kids would disagree with me but i believe they do a great job at making sure every single one of their students succeed onto bigger and better things. I also can say for myself that PG has a very caring community about them especially when something awful or tragic has occurred especially something that has shaken up all of PGHS. So thank you PG for all that you guys do for us!
