    "PHS recently got rid of many of its AP classes due to a lack of qualified teachers. The core class options are pretty standard, but there are some electives that are above average. The entire music and drama department is wonderful and the art classes are always fun. I heard a lot of good things about woods and autos, and the engineering program was growing. The problem is supplying qualified teachers who are willing to be underpaid for their position."

    "I had a great experience at PHS, but I think a lot of that goes to my parents and my friends and my activities. My parents were very active in my education and made sure I got into every class I needed with a decent teacher. My friends had similar parents and we all had our own personal motivation to do well. I did band and it was a huge responsibility and we all had to keep our grades up, otherwise we wouldn't be allowed to participate."

    "A handful of teachers are great and really care about their students and genuinely want to see them do well in life. The other teachers kind of care, but they do the average, minimum, and standardized work required of them. The good teachers seem to only stay three years befogging moving to a different school with better resources."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "There seem to be a lot of cliques that are very inclusive. Some seem to split up economic classes or athlete vs musician vs "nerd". Since it is such a small town, everyone literally knows everything about each other, and if someone doesn't, they will within 24hrs from all the gossip. There is little diversity at PHS, but seems to be getting better. I think LGBTQ acceptance is growing, but many people are very conservative."

    "The teachers at my school are decent because some of them are teachers that I think every kid should have. Other teachers at my school I think, should have never gotten their degree in teaching. Most of my teachers have different teaching styles and I learn from all of them. A couple teachers at the school I couldn't learn anything from them and I couldn't get the concept. All of my teachers that I have had know exactly what they are teaching and have a lot of knowledge on that subject. Most of the teachers I have had an interest in all of their students but, a few a real, true interest in all of their students. Some of the teachers were really good with communicating and really tried to help the students by talking to them consistently. Everyone of my teachers graded way differently than the rest of my teachers but, they were always consistent with their grading."
