I LIKE THIS SCHOOL BUT I DON'T THINK ITS CHALLENGING ENOUGH, FOR OUR KIDS. I HAVE A 6TH GRADER, I THINK THE SCHOOL IS JUST SKIRTING THE KIDS BY. THE KIDS ARE GREAT, RESPECTFUL, SOME BAD APPLES BUT WHAT SCHOOL DOESN'T HAVE THOSE. I THINK THIS AREA NEEDS MORE RESOURCES TO INCREASE THEIR STEM PROGRAMS. I DON'T THINK WE WILL STICK AROUND TO FIND OUT IF THEY EVER GET THE RESOURCES. EDUCATION IS TOO IMPORTANT......

When I lived in Carriere, I worked in the school cafeteria. The children and adults were respectful, polite and well mannered. They were a joy to be around and I enjoyed the time I worked there.

We have a great school and staff --full of dedicated teachers, counselors, and administrators. Everyone I know works hard here and is dedicated to improving the lives of our students by helping them achieve. As you can see, I love working here. The two points I want to make are as follows: 1. The parents are the ones who determined that our students should wear uniforms --by voting. If you didn't vote, shame on you. The teachers may or may not agree with the uniform policy, but because we work here, it's obvious that we must enforce it. 2. Next, if and whenever a child is being bullied, we want to know it! The student or the parent should be sure to report this to the school office. Thank you for looking at more than one side of an issue.

The uniform policy is too strict and these children have almost no freedom of self expression. How can they learn if they are not comfortable in their own environment. How can one even concentrate when they are being 'hounded' about every little thing they are wearing. This is a public school, or at least its Suppose to be. I sent my child there due to lack of income and i still had to buy overpriced uniforms. This makes no sence to me/

Our school is a little to strict but other-wise it is an awsome school.

This is a great school, much better than others. The only problem I see is that their needs to be something more done about the constant bullying the children deal with every day..

I think this school needs improving. The class size is too large. The uniform policy is also too strict.

My wife and I have attended several parents/teachers meetings at PRC JHS. All the teachers we've met have great attitudes and pride toward teaching and love their students. The school is clean and class rooms are orderly.

I believe PRCJH is a wonderful school. The teachers have really helped my daughter excell and get the kind of education I had hope she would recieve. The teachers really stay on top of everything and make learning fun for Brittany. I very much appreciate how much dedication the teachers and staff have with my daughter. You are #1 in my book! Keep up the great work! Thank you, Gina Mack

I believe that PRCJHS is a terrific school. It is the best school in our county. They have recived many honors and awards the past few years. They have recieved the NCLB (NO Child Left Behind) award this year. This school has an excellent faculty and staff. Both of my children are currently attend this school. The only dissapointing thing about this school, is the limits on certain programs such as foriegn languages. But it's not the school's fault; it is the state and county's fault. Other than the program limits, it is a great school. Other schools in this district are almost just as good.
