    My diploma-bound child has special needs and is excelling beyond our dreams at PHHS. The current administration and the staff are knowledgeable, caring, approachable, and work hard to integrate children into the school community from athletics to academics. Special educators communicate with parents and are accessible to students. Plus, they know the children well. The one time I hit an obstacle, the administrator for special education services helped me get what was needed for my child. Anyone who says that a child cannot get services has obviously not asked - or they are asking for something that is not in the best interest of the child in my opinion. I also have an older child who has graduated and is doing very well in college due to the excellent preparation gained at the school. I would compare the education given to my children with any private school. I highly recommend the school.

    i think phhs is a great school. My older sisters and 3 of my cousins graduated from perry hall and are leading successful lives. The teachers are great, as well as the staff and the school, for the most part, is clean. i love perry hall high and when i get older and have kids i wish to have them go there as well.

    This is a great school. Students are usually great but there are always a few bad apples. School is extremely over crowded and the layout is very complex and non-efficient. Academics are great and so are the staff.

    Things I like: -Variety courses and encouragement -Parent/teacher conference day: creative -Parent visiting day (super,need highr enrol -Super activities/committees to join -Interview day -90% teacher email responses -Phone messages for events -Interim reports -Wonderful/helpful secretaries Topics to improve: -Professional signs in hallways to main office, dept. Hang art (especially on open house) -Bigger emphasis on continuing a foreign language (if they want to quit, then introduce them to another language after 3 years...it's important. Other countries speak multiple, these kids are our future) - Dances: dress code for girls...skirts should be to their knees (Adminstration needs to address) It's getting out of hand. - Guidance counselors...don't even know their name and child is graduating. I'm sure they do a great job, but some kids suffer. So how about a mentor program between older students and younger students Freshman year. - Injuries out on the field (teach kids to respect the other team and get down on knee) - school needs to be prettier

    This is the best High School in Maryland!!! The teachers really helped me a lot. The Math department is extremely excellent in the ways they teach students. Loved the way they are using resource classes for special need students!!! One downfall is its such a great school, that its way overcrowded now. I graduated last year from Perry Hall High and we were the largest graduating class of 2008 in the whole county and in the history of the school

    My daughter has Mrs. Cox. What a great teacher! She attends to all children's needs and really helps every child succeed.

    Phhs is a great school. Because of how large it is, one can pursue and get involved in many different activities. For instance, there are many sports teams, theater/drama/art, and clubs that can interest many. Our music department is the best in the nation. If you want it, you get it; people are too quick to blame teachers or administrators sometimes. Also, as a senior who has been attending this school for four years, i want to clarify a misconception: although the school is overcrowded (by approx 200 kids, since phhs was build for approx. 2100), It doesn't mean you cannot maneuver through the halls. I haven't ever been late due to overcrowding.

    PHHS could not have done a better job preparing my daughters for college. My oldest earned an engineering degree, while she says that challenged her, she had a job before graduation and it now pursing her first masters while working full time. My younger daughter said that PHHS actually 'over prepared' her, her words not mine. She said that if anything is hard, that is was high school, hence the Deans List in College semester after semester. If you are willing to learn this is the place to be.

    cons: dangerously overcrowded hallways, the first of 4 lunch periods starts at 10:15am, the administration is not consistant with discipline (the larger problem, however, is bcps) pros: an outstanding staff from the teachers to the custodians and cafeteria, a terrific community, good kids (even the bad ones are pretty good)

    I am a student at PHHS who transferred in from a small private school and entered the AP/GT program. While yes, the school is overcrowded and the trailers are a drag, the quality of my education is excellent. I've had classes in the trailers, and while it might be annoying to have to go outside to get to them, the classrooms are well-equipped with blackboards, televisions, and heating so that learning is not a problem. At PHHS, you get whatever you seek. If you are a hard worker you will get a great education as the teachers are very willing to get involved and help however they can. If you are unmotivated and don't care about school, however, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. One complaint is that the administration is extremely unorganized and communication among the staff is terrible. However, extracurriculars and other electives are plentiful.

    I am a mother of a senior and a freshman so I feel as though I can speak from experience. My senior has done very well at Perry Hall High School and is looking forward to pursuing a degree in the engineering field. My daughter is a freshman and although she doesn't care for school overall, she is enjoying the opportunity to play on a junior varsity sports team at Perry Hall High School. The teachers are terrific and are well educated. The administration is easily approachable. I would recommend this high school to any parent.

    12-5-05 I am a very intellegent student among many at perry hall high school. In each and every single class that i have had here at perry hall high school, i have learned a moral. This moral is that our teachers are so eager to pass all of their students. Many teachers strive each day to help each student as individuals. Our teachers work so hard in everything that they do. Everday, they come to work. Through thick, and thin.. They are there. If they are sick, they are still prevalant and ready to work. The teachers give us every opportunity to be succesful in life. I have learned to try my best.. Even if my best isn't an a+, i have reached success! I love this school! I feel as if Perry Hall High School is the best school in the entire world!!! go hall!!
