I have not found anything good about this school. My grandsons is a freshmen this year and has not been doing good at all since he got here. There has been no help from the teachers, no emails back that I have requested regarding his work, rude attitudes from teachers and office staff and just lacking what it takes to help kids who need help succeed. My grandson learns differently than most and needs help and they give him very little. As most do, they like to blame all on everyone else. Even driving by the school to drop off my grandsons, a teacher in a grey Hyundai tailgates me, almost runs into me and then pulls into the parking area where he parks. You can't preach what isn't there. I give them a 1 out of 5 and have seen better.
The advanced programs are great! Small classes with teachers who care and will prepare you for the rigors of college. No need for private schools , my three children all got into top Universities from PSHS!
This school is a good school for academics and sports, but many teachers do not care for their job. One teacher in particular, T. Little, is a very bad teacher. She is a senior teacher and tries to talk her kids out of going to collage and my councilors will support her in the task, she has no control over any of her classes and many times will treat periods wrongfully because she is in a bad mood. She puts down her students when they ask for their work or have any personal questions, she has told said that she will only accept personal questions from 7:45 to 7:55 when many kids have a zero period. Many times when kids have gone to talk to her before school she isn't there or she will come right before the first bell rings. She has tried to get so many kids in trouble that when she calls the administration doesn't send anyone for a follow up. When she does teach she'll give work that takes fifteen minutes because it is so easy. She has been teaching her students how to write a five paragraph essay, she has been teaching seniors how to write an essay.
We are thinking of having our son attend PSHS in 2 years (he's now a 7th grader) & are interested in hearing more about the school climate, academics, teacher-student ratio, test scores, gifted & talented programming, AP classes, pros, cons, band, sports. Basically, anything you'd like to write about. Thanks, P.S. We rated this school average only because we do not much about it.
