My daughter loves this school. She takes advantage of all of the wonderful opportunities the district offers and has been inspired to do her best by many teachers throughout the district. She understands that her success is due to family support FIRST and the wonderful teaching that is provided. It's time to realize that success begins with a positive partnership and effort between parents and schools. I do believe that the schools in this district are doing their part, but student and parent accountability must step up in order to improve test scores overall.

Most people who are complaining about the teachers are the ones who do NOT take an active involvement in their children's education. Some of the coaches aren't pros, but do I hear anyone offering to help here? No. You don't get to sit back and accuse the teachers of not caring because they are doing their best to keep an atheletic program running. What you DO is take an active role in your children's education and go out and HELP with the fundraisers so they get training, and you HELP with the sports you know how to play. Stop complaining and take an active role in changing the situation! Your kids are YOUR responsibility. Do we pay more taxes to buy more paper? Are you kidding? Our taxes are awesome here. I moved away to a more upscale area and can't WAIT to get back! This district ROCKS!

I think PGHS would be a much better school if more of the teachers really cared about their work and the students. Both my daughters attend this school and the stories I have heard from them completely shocked me. Many times have they come home and expressed that their teachers don't care whether they do the work or not. Some of them even lose the childrens paperwork or even show favoratism towards one gender or another. That isn't right, when your a teacher, a student is a student and you are there to teach them to the best of your ablility.

This school has been going down hill fast. Last year they ran out of paper in April and did not have any money to buy more. Extracurricular activities are a joke. Some of the sport coaches have no idea of how the games are even played they are just babysitting. No desire to improve and deffinately no winning attitude. Teachers spend most of their time preping students how to take the state test.
