I am currently attending this school. The education system is excellent in my opinion. And there are plenty of friendly classmates, if you choose the right ones to hang out with. But be careful, some of them are backstabbers.
I am attending this school right now, and in my opinion this is an ok school. Its deffinately not the greatest, but its not the the worst. There is a lot of drama that goes on, with the parents, students, and even the teachers. The staff is pretty good, some of the teachers are more willing to help the students than others. As for the education part, the teachers are pretty good at taking the time to teach things thoroughly so that the students understand what they are being taught. The students are fairly nice. There's not a lot of fist fighting that goes on, but there has been some incidents, but its mainly all just trash talk that goes on. Overall this school is just ok.
I'm not a parent yet, but I am a proud graduate of Perkins-Tryon High School. I will say though that teachers and staff really cared about students, the community is amazing, and I have many fond memories of attending school there. When I do have kids, I only hope they make as many friends there, learn as many lessons there and feel as fondly about P-T High as I do!
