I attended Patrick Henry over 15 years ago and I'm still processing the bullying I endured there. As an adult, I can't help but be angry at the teachers and administrators who told me or my parents that I needed to learn to deal with it or that "boys will be boys." (I was a girl bullied by boys.) Some teachers were wonderful and made sure my tormentors had no opportunity to bully me in their classes, but ultimately the administration did nothing. I was miserable. I truly hope things have changed now.
I love going to PHMS almost all of the teachers are really nice and all of them try thier hardest to help you understand what you are learning. I just know I will remember this school for the rest of my life. I would deffinatly reccomend this school to anyone who is thinking of going here. I guarentee that you will have some truley amazing expirences and meet some great people here at Patrick Henry. Go Panthers!
I like how the teachers are really nice to me. Also I like how they help me if I do not get something. But my favorite part is all of the sports, music, and etc. I get to be part of as a 7th grader here. This is a good school and I think that everybody who comes here and walks out of it will feel that we are proud to be the Patrick Henry Panthers. Teachers, Parents, and even Students show that they like going here and I love going here myself.
PHMS and SFSD has been wonderful for our sons; one, a severe autistic(non-verbal) and the other, a regular/honors student. I can only think of a couple of times when everything wasn't exactly as it could/should have been. But, when brought to the teacher, administrator, or principal's attention, everything was corrected. The CARING about our children's education, well-being, and lives on and off campus only endears us to this community all the more. Middle school are usually places where the 'rough growing years' play out. PHMS has done a fantastic job at practically eliminating that. Good speech/asst.tech/and O.T. personnel/programs; they go the extra mile, explain details clearly, make themselves available whenever we have questions. Really proud of how great our non-verbal son was treated and spoken to by students and staff this year. The Extra Curricular programs including ALL students is fantastic!
