  • The school is out-dated.... needs a lot of improvement to compete with the newer schools in the area. For athletics, need a bigger weight room period. Go to Deep Run and look at their weight facility or Hanover High. It's a great school for education but for sports.. you might want to move so your child has a better opportunity to succeed in sports in the off season. Teachers are good but the school feels like a jail. You can't go the bathroom and run in to a friend and chat for a minute. If you chat you will pretty much be escorted back to class because the halls are monitored at all times. PH was a good experience for me. but needs major improvement in coaching and weight facilities.

  • Thia is a old school that needs repairs.Needs a new feild house, more lockers, more space and a better athletic training program. But is a very family like school with a nice and country and urban area feeling to it. The staff will try to help their good students to do well in everything they try. My thoughts are schools it self need repairs and improvements put the people are friendly and nice
