Princess Anne is overall a really good school. If you want to go to a school to better your academic knowledge then PA is probably the right school for you! It is a school that includes the International Baccalaureate Program and, like most other schools with this program, challenges its students. There are many fun and innovative clubs, if you think of anything new clubs are very easy to start. Nearly all of the teachers and administrators at PA genuinely want you to succeed and will do most of everything in their power to see you do well.

My experience at PAHS has been pretty good, I've been attending high school and the IB program here since 2015. The sports teams are pretty average, but we make up for it in school spirit! We have a very committed SCA that put together homecoming dances and festivities, any student who's looking to get involved and help the school can certainly do that if they choose. The one major drawback would probably be the buildings themselves, some have been rebuilt since the school's original opening but most are originals, which are definitely a bit dingy. Overall, I wouldn't have wanted to go to high school anywhere else, the relationships and experiences I've cultivated here matter much more to me than the state of the building itself.
My experience at princess anne high school has been wonderful! I’m not a very involved student but the students at this school are relatively accepting regardless of how you feel about involvement. The teachers are great, I’ve met 2 teachers who have seriously made me who I am. I’m happy to have spent the last 4 years here!
