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!

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.
