I enjoy the literature classes because they're informative, encourage forward thinking, and allow us to question and determine where we belong in school, work enviroments, and society. Certain required classes, such as physical education, computer concepts, government or civics, and health, should be examined and made so that students find the classes captivating, informative, and applicable enough to consider, use, and apply the information beyond the semester.

My experience at PHS wasn't bad. Some teachers were iffy, but there were others that were phenomenal and that taught me everything about their subjects. The Sports programs are very good as well.
I am glad to be attending the same school as my mom and grandmother. Although the building has changed several times since they attended it has remained an overall good hometown school. I have enjoyed the relatively small class sizes and personal attention from teachers. I have had the opportunity to attend a vocational school to start my nursing career. The environment at the school has been easy to to adapt to also.
