School Reviews

I have twin boys (2016) that started with PCHS in the 8th grade. We feel like we made the best choice in schools for the boys. The school has a wrestling coach (Ron) that goes out of his way to help the students compete. My boys are on the varsity baseball team and they are on the varsity wrestling team. We are happy with the academic programs. The teachers are willing to stay after to assist the students with questions. The school has a no bullying policy and it works! Overall we give this school an A! Kim Zimmerman
