  • pelham high really sucks. there is no ac in the building. i was in the portables and a thermometer in the room read 98 degrees. in all honesty, i think if i ran into a wall it would fall over. also, the faculty has no control over the student body. overall nobody here really cares about education. especially not the staff. -currently enrolled student

  • I went to this school for 4 years now. Yes the building is crap and a fire could spread from one side of the building to the other im probably seconds. Yes its over-crouded, has fake walls, etc. But the education is fine. Dont not send your kids there because of it being a "bad" education. Cause the education you get there is fine. If you want an education for your kids send them to some 40k a year private school. But as public schools go, you can get a great education here. And dont fall victem to people saying "most classrooms are 2-in-one seperated by book cases, because that is only the case in maybe one or two classrooms. By any means not "most". So to sum this all up, yes the building is old as time itself and its a little crouded. But that in no way affects the education. If your kids wants an education there is a great one to be got here. But if your kids a lazy idiot. Which each underclassmen class seams to be, and they dont get an education. Its their fault, not the staffs. If you kid doesnt want to put the effort in to get an education it doesnt matter where you send them to, they will make up excuses and or not pay attention or try. But if you kid does want an education and they try even a little, they will get a great one here at pelham high school.

  • I live and grew up in Pelham. while the town and people are fantastic, my parents refused to send me to the high school and i'm sure glad they didn't. all my friends who go there used to tell me how horrible it is. however, when ever the school is mentioned in conversation a dissapointing aura comes over everyone. i recommend sending your child to another school.

  • There is a lack of walls, because it fell victim to the open classroom concept of the 60s and 70s (Its that old.) in which they thought they could just leave the classes open so that information could flow freely....Of course this was unsuccessful, so we put up a few flimsy walls- but most classrooms are 2-in-one with only a bookcase separating. The classes out in the trailer are by far the nicest, although they are very hot in summer and very cold in winter. The school is also may be losing accreditation in 2008. If you are considering sending your child to this school, I'd suggest you look at other schools first.

  • this school is getting horibly crowded and the teacher to student ratio is way off... i only have 1 class with 14 people and that is a music class that is optional most of my other classes are between 18:1 or 25:1, also the schools quality ir terible many of the rooms have fake walls that seperate the classes so the noise is very disracting. i would not recomend sending your children here it is a horible place to get an education
