  • My father graduated from PCHS in 1945 as did all of his brothers and sister. My brothers, sisters, and I all graduated from PCHS and received outstanding educations. We are all college graduates, one with a CPA, an attorney, and teachers. I am proud to say I graduated from PCHS.

  • A one-apple rating is too good for this school. Back when I was in high school, I told my mom I would never send a kid there. I've been out of school many years now and I still feel the same way.

  • I was considered a "goody two shoes." The principal and other administrative officials in the high school allowed drug-crazed Charles Manson hippie followers to beat up on me and did nothing to stop future instances. I left the school to study the rest of the curriculum on my own. I wished my mother know about the homeschooling sytem back then because I would not have dirtied my shoes enterting this dump!

  • What a dump, the best thing about that place was leaving it far behind.
