  • I went to 3 different high schools and this was by far the best! While I was only in Poquoson for a year, I have many fond memories of my time there. I went to 12 differnt schools in 12 years undergrad! Again, Poquoson High School was at the TOP of the list. Excellent education, great school spirit and lots of nice people keep this institution in the forefront of my mind.
