Pass Christian High School2

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.
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.
