I had one daughter graduate in 2013, one graduated 2015, and my son will graduate in 2018. They have had great experiences at PNHS and the two that graduated both received scholarships to attend out of state universities. From Ms. Krueger in the front office who is always so kind to every student and parent walking in the door to Mr. Hawkins who keeps us parents well informed of activities to Frau Knop and Madame Trahey in the language department I cannot be happier that we ended up at this high school.

This is a school for academic success. What I don't like is how some of the students are let down by not being selected to play different sports

I would give this school a C-. There are very few teachers that actually car about the students. Most are just paycheck teachers, all they want is their money. A few of the teacher a mildly insane. I learned more from the internet then i did from most of my teachers. but on the bright side there are a few amazing teacher. but the number of bad to good teachers is easily 6:1. Like other people have said the office staff is by far the worst, it takes forever to get anything done and they never do their job...

As a student, I feel like this school doesn't care as much about our futures as much as they think they do. They need to focus more on bullying, and other things that can help us in reality when we go out to get a job. Anybody can be a straight A student, but that doesn't mean we'll get hired.

as a 2010 graduate i can say all the teachers i have had were fantastic! i loved every single one of them. the problem is with the office. it took FOREVER to get in to see your counselor, the ladies in the office were HORRIBLE! just rude beyond all reason, and the nurses are just plain mean. i broke my ankle one year and they REFUSED to let me take the elevator because they had no doctors note. my doctor resent the note 3 TIMES. besides the teachers that got too "friendly", the teaches were great. its the other staff that was a problem.

Your child will have VERY limited selection in electives s/he they to want and have cut off the art program almost completely, which is the only thing really that went into any competition and won usually first to third. Most of the teachers are nice. I found the education office quite irritating. You can't switch your schedule if you have bullying issues in your class. It takes almost a week or two to talk to your counselor also when I talked to my counselor about art school's I was interested in, he had no idea what schools to recommend.The school will take Zero responsibility if you took your pictures for yearbook and you end up not in the yearbook. I know this because for my senior year of high school i was not in it and when i told them i did pay for my pictures you know what they said? "They told us it wouldn't happen again." makes you think, so. . . you didn't check? And I found out this has happened two years in a row. I got a refund from the photo company but not the school for the yearbook because apparently it wasn't their fault.

We pulled our children out of private schools in the area because of poor teachers. My expectations have been extremely exceeded by this school and this staff. The communication, online gradebook, and coaching staff allows me to know everything that is going on with my children. A+

I can tell you from a teacher point of view that the staff, from top to bottom, is greatly dedicated to creating a true learning environment. The students, staff, and community are outstanding. Great school, great place to work!

This school is entirely for student development. I've seen many examples of leadership and a great interest in teaching these kids to be outstanding citizens and leaders. Kudos to you PNHS
