Pattonville was an excellent school while I was in attendance, however with recent school closings in the St. Louis area, I'm not sure how this will effect Pattonville's performance in state-wide testing, ACT score averages, etc.

Great school; all of my children have gone here. They offer AP and honors courses, state of the art technology, outstanding teachers, and a variety of sports & activities for the students.

I am going into my senior year at PHS and I can honestly say that I am incredibly happy I chose this wonderful school. Over the year my parents looked at switching me into schools such as Chaminade, DeSmet, CBC, etc. and every time I chose to stay in Pattonville. Though the sports teams maybe lacking in wins, the facilities are not. In the last year we have completed a new stadium and a new Olympic sized pool. As a school we were ranked number 19 out of all public high schools in Missouri. Though schools not far from us ranked higher, the cost of living in their districts is incredibly high. Pattonville provides an excellent, affordable education. One definitely gets more than they paid for. The school has been dragged down in reputation by those around us, but I can say with complete assurance that Pattonville has been, is,, and always will be, going nowhere but up!

My kids have been in the Pattonville School District since they were in Kindergarten. Now in High School, they were devastated to hear we may be moving. The teachers are excellent!! They have never had problems with other students (bulllying, fights, etc). I just hope wherever we move, I find something that is similar, but I doubt it.

I, myself, recently graduated from Pattonville. It is an amazing school with great curriculum. I am now in college and can proudly say it has helped me achieve great things as a student. The best department there in the English department. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be an honors student in my college english course. The math department honestly isn't that great but a few teachers, definitely are nice and helpful; as well as the math help center. Other than that, the school is VERY diverse and non-cliquish. Everyone and anyone can and will fit in somewhere at Pattonville.

I'm sorry, but I must point out that most of the reviews from former students had either grammatical or spelling errors. Interesting.

This school is one of the best public high schools in Missouri.They offer this 'A+' program(I don't remember what it's called),which you get full scholarships for 2 years(if you go to public colleges in MO) if you get good grades and stay out of trouble. The teachers are amazing,and students are always motivated.My kids started crying when I told them that we were moving.

Pattonville is an amazing school to go too. I not only went to the high School but to one their elementary schools and middle schools. I loved it and when I had to transfer to different school I was devastated. The teachers truly care about their students and how well they are doing in and out of school. It's very easy to stay on track and get good grades with all of the love and care coming from staff and students. At Pattonville you have to work hard but you also get the chance to have tons of fun! It's by far the best School district in St.Louis any student here is sure to succeed!

Pattonville is a great school! The school is not only dedicated to helping students succeed within the school but on the outside. There are many challenging classes that are offered, and there are also smaller sized classes to help the students who have special needs. All of the students have an equal opportunity to do their best because of all of the choices at Pattonville. There are many extracurricular activities such as football, basketball, Student Council, and DECA, along with many more. Pattonville has great teachers who truly care about their students and they genuinely want them to do well. If I had a choice of any high school in the nation, I would stay here at Pattonville because the classes, teams, and all groups that I am involved in are like a family, and I don't think that you can find that very often in high schools.

Pattonville is such a good school. I wish thousands of times that I still went there. This is the type of school you want your kids at.

Pattonville is very unique school that offers a great education that is not hindered my mediocracy, but strives for higher standards. These higher standards exist outside of the classroo, through extracirricular activities like NHS, International Club, Minority Achievment, annual student performed Musicals, Orchestra, Bands, and many sports programs. A diversity in faculty adds to their success with educating students. Administrators are always in search of improving efficiency of school operations, enhancing safety, and making sure students excel. Pattonville is partaking in a national academic renaissance that raises the bar in education through its numerous honors, gifted, advanced placement, and college credit(through SLU and UMSL) courses while removing remedial courses. In Algebra 1 students must earn a B or higher on tests in order to advance through the course, which shows that PHS is dedicated to ensuring that students KNOW their material and do not pass with an easy A.
