We recently moved from Texas to Petersburg and am amazed at the quality of the local schools. My kids are solid performers in school and in fact my daughter spent several years in a highly competitive private school in Texas. Here in Petersburg she is in Public School and the High School is at the same level as her highly touted private school in Texas. Light years ahead of the public school system in Texas.
Petersburg High School is a public high school in Petersburg. 150 children attend Petersburg High School and identify mostly as White, non-Hispanic; Hispanic; and Asian. 50% of the 150 students here are paying reduced lunch prices. The ratio of students to teachers at Petersburg High School is 12:1. Wrangell High School is one of the nearest high schools.
