Good teachers, but the counselors are not proactive with encouraging the students to take college preparatory classes. The administration is only concerned about the students learning what is on the state exams and are very lackadaisical about discipline (there are numerous fights at the school) The students DO NOT welcome new students to the school as I was told this by several parents who removed their children because of this. I removed my child from Pass Christian High after two years and he is very, very happy at his new school.
The atmosphere is positive, energetic & caring!! Truly committed to excellence in every way.
As a student that went to two different high schools, the comparison between Long Beach High and Pass Christian High is laughable. Pass Christian has so many more class selections with teachers who really do care. I spent my sophomore year at Long Beach High and did not learn anything. The things that were reviewed, I had done several years before. Also, Mrs. Broadway (Pass Christian Principal) was excellent. She knew every student by name, what classes they were taking, and what extracirricular activities they were involved in. The school always had something going on that involved everyone, staff and students alike. Pass Christian is a beautiful school with an inspiring staff. I highly recommend this school for your children and their children....and their children :-)
pass christian is the best school ever in this state! everything is up to par the principal is awesome, even the assistant principals. we have so much freedom but when in comes to being academic we buckle down and do very well! and we still have time to win the championship in basketball! no matter what this school is just the best. go pirates! don't change!
Pass High is a great school. Though there is too much emphasis on getting good test scores, the teachers really care that the students learn and do well. The new Renaissance program is one of the most ingenious ideas I have ever heard of. While students should want to learn for the sake of learning and not for silly materialistic rewards, this is unfortunately never going to happen. Pass High has sought to rectify this problem by providing incentives for doing well (both behaviorally and academically). In my opinion, this leads to a desire to learn. The staff is very approachable, and I would highly highly recommend this school to anyone deciding on where her child should attend. I'm at my dream college because of all of the opportunities provided to me at Pass High.
The teachers care about their jobs, the principal and other admin are constantly and actively involved in student life, and the classes are varied. The only weaknesses of Pass Christian High School are its extra cirriculars such as sports and choir.
Thank you Passchristian Schools that my child has directions, and when they are not clearly understood you make it understandable! My daughter is in the 10th grade @ PCHS and In the many years from k till now her book shelf is full of knowledge and understanding because you all spent many hours teaching and caring about my child, your student, our future.
PCHS is the best school ever. The teachers are some of the best that we have in MS. They are there for the students and work hand-n-hand with the administration to make PCHS the best ever. My former high school is the best in the state and there is no other school that compares to it. The administration at PCHS is always helpful and they want their student to be successful and the best they can be. Everyone at PCHS is the best and that includes their student body. As an alumni of Pass High I live by the slogan, 'Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate!'
Pass High is a great school but could use much improvement... the teachers are wonderful and the food is great but what the students lack the most is privileges. There isn't much freedom and the students have a hard schedule with very strict rules. Other than the few wrong things that i just talked about, Pass is one great, fun, and caring school that you will never forget. No matter what, a student will make good friends and have an awesome high school experience.
Pass Christian High School is a great school to attend. The school itself is still fairly new and well taken care of. The teachers are great. My favorites being Mrs. Harris, Mrs. Dudenbostel, Mrs. Costello, and of course Mr. Herbert. My class ranked first in the state on the U.S. History test thanks to Mrs. Harris, who is a great teacher. Mrs. Broadway is a great principal, always there when you need her. I would recommend Pass High to anyone that is looking to receive a great education.
I went to Pass Christian schools my whole life. I can tell you that the most of the teachers do a wonderful job! My high school experience there was great!
I think that Pass Christian High School is a wonderful to receive an education from. When I was in school I always received and opportunity to further my self. The staff were always lookinfg for a way to help me out, when I needed it. The student teacher ratio is a good thing. Everyone is able to receive the attention that they need in order to succeed. I would reccommend this school to anyone because everyone is welcome and tended to. Everyone receives and equal opportunity to further themselves. Another good thing about the school would have to be the organization are available both during school and after school.
In response to Feb. 2004 - First learn to spell Principal - Second, your child must be the one causing the problem and as everyone in this districts knows, if the students are not there to learn, they will find it very difficult. The Pass is and has been a level five (5) school, which is the top in the state. They have great teachers, students and a fantastic Administrative staff. If you are moving to the coast area of MS, this is the school district to attend. As for Ms. Broadway, she is there for all the students.
Pass Christian High School is the best school in the state of Mississippi. Cathy Broadway is the greatest principal in the world. Go Pirates!
This school is not up to par. The teachers are, in general, judgmental. The principle can not control the students. There are more fights because of the faculty not responding than in any school in Mississippi.
