    Awesome kids with awesome instructors. These teachers really care about the kids. We have minimal problems at school an occasional good old fashioned fight but nothing serious. The kids are focused on learning. Although this is a small countywide school it is filled to capacity with nurturing comraderie friendships teamwork and love for mankind.

    I graduated from PCHS in 1986. I had a wonderful experience there as a student. The teachers there were so nice and caring. My oldest daughter is attentding PCHS this year and she simply loves PCHS. She loves all her teachers and the staff there. If you are looking for a school that is safe for your child with educated teachers then PCHS is the school for your child. The school has alot to offer. The kindness of all the staff is remarkable. It is hard to find a school that your child wants to get up and go to but with my child at PCHS she loves going to school there and comes home happy and enjoys her time there. To me as a parent that means alot to know your child is happy and is in a safe school. I urge you to check out PCHS it's #1!

    I really like PCHS if there was any other school as cool as this one I don't know where it would be! Patrick County is the best place to live! I play soccer here and the coach is awesome! Classes are great at PCHS some teachers are a little boring but where are you going to find a school that has no boring teachers?
