Princeton Senior High School Ratings & Reviews
The band at the school is phenomenal, and it is made possible by the band teacher Mrs. Kade. She teaches students how to take criticism and to be responsible, how working hard for something over a long period of time can achieve greatness. The academics at this school are questionable however. If you're serious about college you HAVE to take the hardest classes you can find. The regular classes are a joke and the atmosphere is horrible in them, the teachers and the students don't care (I've taken 1 or 2 reg. classes). If you take the honor/ap classes you will be challenged, but if you do take these classes you have to put a decent amount of time at home away from school to succeed. It prepares you for real life, no one is going to hold your hand there.
This school is bellow average in academics and bellow average in mental preperation for the real world. Students from pshs usually struggle in their continued education.
I just what to say that Mrs.Kade is doing an excellent job with the band. When I heard the band at the All City Concert I was just stund that one woman could do such a wonderful job with a big band. So keep up the good work
I am one of the few African American students at this school, and I enjoyed myself until I tried to do some majority White extracurricular activities, and was turned down. The school isn't extremely racist, but it has its tendencies. If you are sending your child to this school MAKE SURE to put them in honors classes because the students are so unattentive, it is ridiculous. It's a block schedule school and I advise that you not send your child to this school if they've been on regular schedule for a long time. I'm from the city and West Virginia is very rural. The school seems to be the life of 13-20 year old daily activity. The vocational school is available and seems to be very enjoyable and as a sophomore I enjoyed the tour that they provided for us.
My daughter is a sophomore and loves it here. It has one of the best high school sports facilities I've ever seen. Many colleges don't even come close to haing a football field as nice as Princeton High's.
