My experience at Providence thus far after moving in my junior year has been not particularly bad or good. The school itself is just fine, there are some facilities and technology that could be updated to keep up with outside schools and institutions, but overall meets the basic needs. However, one thing that must be stressed for those looking to enter this school- the academic culture is highly stressed here. Grades are a lifestyle. If you are looking to pursue a rigorous courseload, do not expect to have much a school culture or lifestyle or any involvement with any clubs or activities. There is a huge amount of homework given in majority of classes. There are a few clubs that are worth attending, but the variety is not much.
My one little tick with Providence is that there appears to be a lack of community and school spirit. Everybody feels like an own entity without much cross interaction between certain types and groups of people.

I was glad to be given the opportunity to attend Providence High School, which is one of the best schools in the state and county, after coming from a country where education was a privilege and not much of an option for most people. The one thing I would change about though is the competitive environment is created after certain expectations are set on students to perform better than average academically. Wanting kids to do well in the school is a normal thing for schools to want from their students, however, since the school is one of the highest-ranking in the state it puts more pressure on students to have a higher GPA and exceptional test scores on the ACT and SAT and it affects students mentally as it creates anxiety and stress issues However, these issues are overcome with the help of the supporting teachers at Providence, who are definitely well prepared and by the great amount of school spirit and a sense of community at the school.
I enjoyed how many students attended Providence. It was easy to find extracurricular activities to participate in. The peers I had were very welcoming and friendly. The teachers truly cared about the education that they provided to each student. I am glad that I attended Providence high school because I was exposed to many learning curves that challenged me as an individual, not only as a student. Although, the academics were very difficult, I would say that it made me very prepared for college. The facility and staff were all very dedicated to helping the success of each student.
