Providence Grove High School Reviews

The staff that is employed at Providence Grove High School is well-qualified in that it genuinely cares about the education of the students and works hard to ensure that students have what they need to exceed in life. In spite of that, the school has issues with having enough money to provide the certain students with a proper and fulfilling education. A large disappointment is that the majority of the AP science classes (AP Biology, AP Physics, AP Chemistry, and AP Environmental Science) are rotated throughout the years so that only one is available one year and a different class is available the next. This makes it difficult for students interested in the STEM field to broaden their minds during the four years they have in high school. All in all, the Providence Grove staff try their best to make a difference in the lives of their students, but money problems tend to set these students back rather than propel them forward into the future.

Providence Grove High School offers an overall pleasant learning and social experience for its students. Although there are a few hiccups here and there, mostly among the administration, the faculty makes up for those mistakes through their very amiable and agreeable demeanors. Most teachers are qualified for the positions they hold and do well with their jobs, teaching and nurturing students in effective, creative ways, appealing to all different types of learners. Providence Grove also provides its students with a handful of on-site learning opportunities, mostly in the Business and History departments, as well as several clubs catering to a plethora of interests.
Providence Grove is a strange mix of exceedingly good and exceedingly bad, with very little in between. On the good side, I have learned and retained more here than at any other school, I believe partially because of the teachers. I have had a few teachers who seemed under trained, but the majority have been exceptional. The school tries its best to help students prepare for the future as well, offering many helpful seminars and meetings about college and future thinking. There are some very negative aspects, though many are not the school's fault. The resources available are in desperate need of some updates, including books and technology. The club and extracurricular scene at PGHS is very poor, with only a few clubs of any actual interest that have enough members to operate. This may be a contributing factor in the absolute lack of school spirit present, which really shines through at big events like pep rallies.
