I really enjoyed my time at PHS i never really encountered more then 1 bad teacher. She is still there i believe. All 4 years were good except the typical freshman crap. But overall it was fun and a great place to learn

Not too bad. Like most schools the worst thing is tenure. There are somegreat teachers at Pelham and there are some that should be fired. Yes, I agree that too much emphasis is put on the football team and a cheerleading squad that rarely cheers. More recognition should be given to academic achievement ...  Read more

Phs has poor administration. Admin picks on unimportant things in students' day to harrass them. Teacher quality overall is very good. Athletic and arts programs well supported by community and parents.

What is so bad about Pelham is that the teachers don't want anything to do with you really. This is my first year at PHS. Im in 10th grade. And this was the biggest mistake of my life.

As a military spouse I wished I would have checked out the City of Pelham more throughly before moving here. ...  Read more

I go to Pelham High School. Its really fun. I use to HATE school, now I LOVE it! The teachers, students, principals, everyone there is great. I agree with the fact that they spend more time worrying about sports than grades. It's a fun and amazing experience that I will never forget!

My daughter transferred here and it is perhaps the biggest mistake that we ever made. Pelham High School is more concerned about whether or not a shirt tail is tucked in rather than any academic achievement. My daughter transferred from a school where she had a 4.0 GPA. My daughter dresses and acts a ...  Read more

As a current student at Pelham High, I must say it is the jewel of Shelby County. It has great faculty, academic body, athletic body, and artistic body. The SGA also does incredible work. You say the school revolves around sports, what school doesn't? Our school puts big emphasis on sports because ...  Read more
