    "I love the community involvement associated with Parkersburg South. They genuinely care about others and their students. I do wish for the food at the school to change though there are strict guidelines I know they must follow."

    "Parkersburg South is a great place. It's in a small part of town and athletics a huge part of the school!"

    "Parkersburg South is an overall adequate school. There is little diversity and the culture of the school can be difficult to adjust to if you're not from the surrounding area. Some teachers are very helpful and want to see their students succeed, but the majority are involved as little as possible with the education of the students. A wide variety of classes are offered but there is a noticeable lack in the physics department. However, the multitude of other classes do a decent job preparing students for college. The sports department is one of the best in the state for most of the sports, and they are fairly easy to get in to. There are definitely areas where the school could improve, but as whole the school does well preparing students for their life."

    "PSHS is an amazing school! From the teachers, to the student body, as well as the principles, doesn't get any better. The learning environment is great and we stand behind our peers when in need! I couldn't have asked to attend a better high school than Parkersburg South!"
