  • As an alumni of the class of 09, however, a transfer out of my senior year of 09, I would like to say the coaches are wonderful, Coach Lee, Cozart, and everybody who finally realized that I was a serious football player wanting what eveybody else wanted as a girl. However, my new school, focuses on sports as well, but they are no Coach Lee, and Cozart. Thanks to all my coaches, and friends all four years. And hey Tigers, let's take care of them Raiders. :)

  • As a current student of this school, I would like to point out that the staff here is mostly extremely qualified, with some minor exceptions of course, and are very personable despite the amount of students per class. However, this school spends too much of its money on the athletic department and thus the academia suffers greatly from under funding. Overall, an OK school.

  • As a former student I would not recommend this school to anyone. Very under funded, student to teacher ratio sucks, a very poor school. Send your children to a different school.

  • I would like to Thank the Staff at Patterson Hi during the Mishap on Wednesday 9/19/07
    I thought they did an excellent job concerning our students. It was unfortunate if students did get hurt but sometimes things just cannot be helped. You deserve a star.
