Purcell High School is a place where everyone knows everyone and treats them like how they would want to be treated. It is a great environment that many, including me, have come and accepted and have enjoyed for the four years I have spent at this high school. I mostly spent time with the band program which I have come to call a second family. Our band director is one of the best high school band directors in the state. You'll come to love him as well as the many other teachers and workers at the school. Each and every single one of them does a tremendous amount of work to keep the school in good spirits and in a good light. Purcell High School is a great environment for kids to come a receive an education.

In my experience as a Purcell High School student, I have enjoyed my high school years to an extent. Pep rallies held in the gym were always looked forward to by the student body, most teachers were willing to listen to students with an open mind and ready to help them succeed. Although, as my high school career comes to an end, I will be glad to graduate and continue my education.
I like being here. I wish the cafeteria food was more edible, and those new fluorecent lights give me headaches. Otherwise, it's great!
