Paden City High School Ratings & Reviews
Paden City High School is an excellent choice for your child's education. The rigorous curriculum and individualized attention allows for exemplary preparation for colleges and universities as well as 21st Century Skills for ALL students. PCHS has a caring and excellent staff that drives students and prepares them to be successful. As an educator myself, I am glad I chose to send my child to PCHS.
"To the parent whose childs grades slipped: The beauty of this school is that there is so much opportunity for individualized attention. Did your child stay after school for help? Did they come in early? What about ISE days? This school is quite rigorous, unlike other schools where you came from (likely). It is true the teachers are veterans, but I don't know any of them are ""doing time until they can claim retirement"". (Everyone looks to retire someday. :) )They are all experienced educators that have shown time and again their ability to educate by the schools Westest scores. Don't look for excuses. Meet with the teachers and find ot why your child is not performing as expected, then work towards a solution with them. This school is a rigours small school, very good Westest scores, and prepares students for college, trade school, etc. Teachers are dedicated. Almost all students walk to school so additional help andresources is easily obtained!"
"Many have been here a long time. Many are doing time until they can claim their retirement. I expected some slippage of my childs grades when we moved to Paden City. I was shocked to see that within six months, they took a student who made ""A's"" and ""B's"" and had them failing in two of their best subjects. When I suggested that another teacher might be more appropriate for my child, I found out that wasn't possible. Because of the small school size, only one teacher taught each subject. The only alternative was to transfer my child in the middle of a school year. At the suggestion that maybe a teacher might not be appropriate for my child, I was told that it ""couldn't possible be the teacher's fault"" ""your child must be slacking off."" This while the child has always done well, up to this point. And was well regarded by everyone at their previous school, including the faculty and the principal. The worst part is watching a child who enjoyed school, totally turned off to it now and thinking seriously of quitting."
Paden City High School is an excellent school. It provides an excellent jump start for college. As a graduate and a parent of students I believe this school is one of the best in the country. I have dealt with people from all over the United States and I know I have received a quality education that prepared me for the 21st century. I also know that my children are getting an excellent education at Paden City Schools. JB
